When I went to start my 2001 Ford Expediton today, it wouldnt turn over . I took the keys out and the Odometer stays on now and reads ---------. Came back a few hrs later and it started right up but the odometer still is on and still reads ---------. It has been raining all day, could that have something to do with it?

Re: odometer issue and not turning over
This seems to be a faulty ground. Start looking in places exposed to the weather. Sometimes you can find a bad ground by checking for warmth at the connection. Be sure everything is turned on. Frankster016

this took me sometime to figure out. but you have to turn the key almost to the on position, (one click before starting) and at the same time you press and hold the mileage reset button on the gauge for about 5-10 seconds.. you will see some lines appear when 5 small lines appear.. bam your done, turn key back and then start car,
turn the key on. press the odometer/trip button until the odometer is displayed. turn the key off. press and hold the odometer button and turn the key to the run position (do not start). The odometer should change from a number to all dashes ( - - - - - - ). One by one the dashes will disappear then the display will change to all zeros and then will change to the regular odometer reading. Once the regular odometer is displayed let go of the button and turn the key off. The maintenance light will now be reset.
I had the same problem with my Odometer in my 01' Regal. The dealer will quote you some outrageous price for a new instrument cluster. There are a bunch of people on Ebay that you can pay around $100 and they will repair it for you. Or, if your husband is pretty handy you can fix it yourself for about $2.00. All you need is a pack of resistors from RadioShack and soldering gun. I did it myself and with this videos instruction it only took me a little under an hour and $12.00.
As for the service light, I don't know what you had repaired, but to get mine off I had to get a dealer to reset the computer (about $100 or so).
With the battery connected?
With a Digital Odometer: Turn the Key from Off to On (not start) three (3) times, On the third (3rd) time leave it in the On (not start) position. The Codes will appear in the Digital Odometer Screen. When it is finished it will show "PdonE".
It is on the 2001 Dodge Caravan.
Without a Digital Odometer?
Turn Key the same way and leave the same way.
Watch the Engine Light (yellow) and count and record the blinks. Do it a few times to get the count correct.
These are 2-digit numbers. The last set is 5-blinks and 5-blinks indicating that it is complete.
would change the ECU with the chip from the key from a car in scrapyard ,but before you get carried away try another seperate earth on the back of the speedo printed circuit board ,i wouldnt mind betting this is your problem
