Since it sounds like a digital odometer, it could be simple or it could be expensive. If a connector or ground - usually under the dash is making intermittent contact, loosening and re seating them could cure it. If, on the other hand, a circuit board has a hairline crack, it could require replacement of the board and odometer.

I had a similar problem on an '88 Buick. While I never did resolve it, and traded it in soon after it started, it seemed that a good smack on top of the dash with my fist would bring it to it's senses for a while.
