Question about 2000 Saturn Ls 4dr Sedan

2000 Saturn L series

I had a battery replaced in my vehicle and now the odometer does not work. It reads 694,497 and the trip was also at 0. What would have caused this and could it be easily fixed? Thanks for any help.

Cheap solution: Disconnect your negative battery cable for ~20-30 mins, re-connect it, and see if that fixes it. Some cars' computers go wonky if a KAM (Keep Alive Memory) isn't used. This might reset it.
Otherwise, check eBay or a local dismantler for some used, same-year gauges. They go for ~$50/less plus shipping. Replacing it is more time-consuming than it is difficult, and the Chilton or Haynes manual should have the instructions.

My odometer reads the same. My mechanic said it was my instrument cluster, which is a $900 part and $100 to install. I guess I don't really need my odometer.

My miles gauge stop working in my 03 Saturn vue


So does the Trip odometer work? Does the odometer work? If you answer is "sort of", does the odometer return to the same mileage every time your 2003 Saturn VUE sits overnight? The VUE has an all electronic odometer sensor that is in the transmission, so you may need to replace that. I also agree with JDCamped that those wires may need replaced, but the mice? I would think burned/shorted in a wiring harnes is far more common and you should see a "Check Engine" light. The cluster just shows the data from the sensors, if they are blank, then that is the cluster.

2001 saturn sl200, odometer stuck 634,578 miles probably closer to 95,000 miles. any idea how to repair?


i can tell you this was a very common problem on the 91-94 S series instrument cluster, so common that an odometer repair kit was sold on eBay for just a few bucks. so you could go look at eBay and see if there is an odometer repair kit for the 00 & 01 S series as I think they were not made after 01 and the 95-99 clusters were different. A search on www.youtube.com always turns up interesting Saturn repair videos.

My speedometer and odometer stopped working


Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.
