Faulty auto check switch/trip computer??

For months now, I've been getting weird scrambled images on the
pictogram, so a few weeks ago, I pulled the cluster and checked
all connections. This yielded no improvement. So.....last week I
bit the bullet and bought a new unit (ouch) and installed it. The
good news is that the pictogram works beautifully, as do the BAR
and average mph. functions. The bad news is that now the average
mpg function and miles to empty reads at a constant 200mpg., and
2000 miles to empty. The unit will reset to 0.00, but immediately
jumps back to 200mpg (I wish!).

Do any of you have any ideas, or do you think I have spent $450 to
acquire a faulty unit.? Thanks so much for any advice.

BTW, the guy who sold me my first 200q20v Avant, (this is my
third) opined that 147 Avants and 512 sedans were imported in '91.
Anyone care to corroborate??
