I have a 1991 chevy caprice classic with a 5.0 L engine non police. Recently the odometer stopped working but the speedo is wirking fine. Both the speedo and odometer and trip meter are mechanical NOT digital. Please help.

Re: Odometer/Trip Meter Not Owkring
It's most likely the cluster if one function works and the other doesn't. And, you likely have an electronic vehicle speed sensor that sends a signal to your analog cluster that then dispays your speed and odometer.

1. To reset MAINT reminder light after engine oil replacement, turn ignition switch to OFF position with odometer showing ODOMETER READING. Turn ignition switch to ON position while holding down trip meter RESET button.
2. Hold trip meter RESET button down for at least 5 seconds until odometer indicates "000000" and MAINT reminder light goes out.
How many miles are on this vehicle? I ask because the odometers in these car stop working around the 140k to 170k mark. Did the button comeback? Is this the mileage on the digital or analog trip meter? The process to change the odometer gear is fairly straight forward and takes less than $20 and an hour. Let me know.
If the speedometer itself is currently working fine, it may be that the Odometer and Trip-o-meter gears are broken. Lincolns OnLine have a large database of information regarding Town Cars from all years. This specific link will help you to order and replace the proper gears for your car.
I have a 1994 chevy caprice classic LS. 4.3lLMy odometer meter works off and on...why does it do that? Sometimes I cans see how fast I'm going.. Other times the numberes don't light up. Same problem happen with my signal lights.. They both occur at the same time.. my signal light indicater and my MPH odometer.
This has been a problem with VOLVO especially the 850 models what happens is the plastic senssor inside the speedometer breaks off and it will tell you the road speed but ODOMETER AND TRIP METER will not work and the only way to fix it is to take the cluster out and sometimes it can be soldered back in place or get a used cluster and replace the unit sorry but it is not a simple fix
