I had the same issue with my wife's 01 beetle and it ended up being a bad alternator.

Became a member of the 300,000 mile club and was nearing 400,000 and the odometer and trip meter quit working. ironically, the dash lights went out also .other instruments are working.


Your odometor should continue to track miles and as led displayed Odometers and dash lights receive voltage on same line from headlight switch take it in for the dash lights and 400,000 mile club look out.

10k miles added to my odometer after oil change and reset light


The oil change light will come on automatically after a set number of miles (possibly 7,000 for your car). Here's how to reset the oil light:

(a) Set the odometer display window to ODO with the button.
(b) Turn the ignition switch (key) off.
(c) Press and hold down the reset button, and then turn the key to the ON or ACC position. Keep holding down the reset button for at least 5 seconds after you've turned the key.
(d) The next time you start your car the warning light should be off.

I have a 1997 honda accord the odometer has stopped working it just turned over to 139999 it is stuck between the next number140000.What do I have to do?


the 10,000 gear has worn out. Even if you could somehow "jog" the odometer
to the next number, it would likely
encounter the same problem trying to transition from 149999 to 150000.

Your option is replacement, or do what 99.999% of car owners do when the Odometer quits - ignore it.
Or set the trip odometer to zero, and never touch it again - thereby you can calculate the
total mileage by adding the trip odometer value to 140000.

Knowing the current odometer mileage is valuable for a Honda Accord owner with 140K miles, since
you want to keep up the regular maintenance intervals for your car - if you do, you 97 Accord
will likely travel past the 200K miles mark, and eventually approach 250K miles (like my Accord).

1) Turn your key to the on position (dash lights will come on)
2) Push the odometer button until the total miles are displayed and keep holding it.
3) Turn the key Off, and then back ON while holding the odometer button in.Don't let up on the button. You will notice the odometer reading shows dashes and they will sequence off. After they sequence off, the Maint Reqd light will go off. Release the odometer button

I am so sad, my 1988 240DL odometer just stopped working (along with the trip). It stopped somewhere near the 263,000 mile mark, and i'm sad cause i want to see how many miles it will have when it finally...


Unfortunately, there is no fix for your current odometer. Your car will continue to rack up miles, but there is no way to tell (sometimes you can with a digital odometer). What I can suggest is getting a new.used gauge cluster and track your mileage from there.

*Note..sometimes the pin (s) used on these can go and cause this issue..it can be repairable if you have the time, patience and money...on the downside, if you've driven the car since it broke, no way on getting those miles added on...the upside..a cheaper alternative is replacement (check ebay or car-part.com)

The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.


I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps
