My trip odometer show double the distance traveled.


Check your miles by markers on the road. If the trip is double, it is a chip failure. I wouldn't worry about it until the odometer fails. It can be reset.

How Odometers Work?


Mechanical odometers have been counting the miles for centuries. Although they are a dying breed, they are incredibly cool because they are so simple! A mechanical odometer is nothing more than a gear train with an incredible gear ratio.

Some odometer has a 1690:1 gear reduction! That means the input shaft of this odometer has to spin 1,690 times before the odometer will register 1 mile.

Odometers like this are being replaced by digital odometers that provide more features and cost less, but they aren't nearly as cool.

Odometer stopped working


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.

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)

1994 Acura Legend odometer quit


Most likely your magnetic speed pick up failed. It is redundant, so the car will still drive. Should get it fixed though.

'98 Buick Century has no odometer/gear selector display


The resisters on the back of the odometer fell off. they can be re solder if you can find them. That is what happened to mine. i stumbled on video directions on youtube. just pull out you cluster. there are 4 resisters on ther right top side of the of the PC board. if there still there they will be blackend and burned. just roll your finger on them and if they fall off easy there bad. you can buy replacement resistors for like $3 and same your self a $100 to fix or worse. buying a new one. ther resistors i used were 1/2 watt 150Ohm 5% tolerance resistors. and they can be bought from any raido shack. i hope this helps.
