SOURCE: odometer doesnt work

Your speedometer works, your odometer quit. Chances are, your drive gear has given up. The popular story is that you hit the trip meter reset while the car was in motion. While it is entirely possible that that particular event was the event that caused the actual failure, the root cause lies at the VDO factory. The tiny, little, 15 tooth planetary gear that drives the odometer and trip meter from the speedo sensor has turned into a soft jello like rubber over the years due to excessive heat and a corrosive oil lubricant that has turned that essential gear into mush. The separation of a couple teeth from that gear has been inevitable. Now, if you have an electrical(led) displayed odometer, this could be a blown fuse or the sending unit is damaged. Either way, you will have to remove the cluster from the dash to access this problem spot.

please rate and god bless..

SOURCE: 1991 S-10 Blazer speedometer, odometer not

Speed sensor has failed.

It is basically a magnet sensor that reads the RPMs of the tranny.

It is screwed into the side of the transmission.

Do you have an aftermarket alarm installed, or remote start?
Sometimes those wires can be damaged if not installed properly.

It is $33.00 at autozone.
Part #SU1090

Thanks for using FixYa - please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue.

SOURCE: instrument panel cluster gauges and odometer has stopped working

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.

2004 Chevy Trailblazer - instrument panel works fine except the digital odometer reading went out and does not display anything?

You will have to have the cluster repaired. If you are handy, you can take the cluster out yourself. There a number of vendors on Ebay who repair clusters.

All the gauges in the car does not work including the digital odometer, but the dash lights work along with everything else on the van. wat is the problem?

It is likely that it's the main wire connector pins on the instrument cluster circuit board. By re-flowing the solder on the 13 pins, you will probably resolve the problems. This is even more likely to be the problem if there has been erratic dash board, gauge, idiot light behaviour. Let me know if you need instructions on how to remove the instrument cluster to re-solder the 13 pins. It actually doesn't take too long.

The gauge fuel and odometer no work

elinmorta16: Is this problem intermittent, did it come on progressively, getting worse each time, or has it been resolved? I'm assuming it's a 1998 Voyager. I would first and foremost suspect the instrument cluster main harness solder joints. I had a similar problem that eventually caused vehicle to fail to start altogether. After reviewing several posts about it I decided to re-solder all these joints. This didn't initially resolve the no start problem ---- UNTIL ---- I did the instrument cluster self-diagnosis test. With ignition off, hold the trip meter and reset buttons for 10 or more seconds. When I turned the ignition to on, I got the self check sequence displaying on the odometer. After it completed, my dash gauges worked just fine......and the vehicle started again!!

To find the instrument cluster fix, google "1998 voyager instrument cluster solder". You should find several posts explaining it. It eventually worked for me!! God bless those who take the time to help others!

Odometer doesn`t work

Thanks. The odometer is driven by plastic gears inside the instrument cluster. Since the speedo works we know the info is getting to the cluster so the plastic gears are obviously stripped or broken. This is pretty common on these vehicles.

You'll need to replace the cluster or have it repaired.

Dash board is digital and the dash lights went out seeking information on how to remove the dash board console 1993 chevy blazer tahoe LT

Remove the 5 mounting screws from the instrument cluster trim plate and remove the trim plate. Remove the 4 mounting screws from the instrument panel face plate and remove the face plate.Remove the instrument light grid from the center of the cluster. From behind the instrument cluster reach behind the speedometer and disconnect the speedometer cable by releasing the tab. Pull the cluster forward just enough to detach the "check engine" light bulb from the center of the cluster. Remove the instrument cluster from the dashboard.

Odometer quit working but speedodometer works all gagues work need to know what to check

The odometer is driven by a small electic motor. It receives the same signal the speedometer receives. If the odometer motor is no longer functioning, I'm affraid the entire instrument panel cluster will have to be replaced.
Any other questions, let me know.

Digital display cluster

Chevy is known for using a cheap grade of wiring harnesses that corrode over time and short out. my 93 s10 blazer had a bad wire in the transmission harness resulting in only 2nd and 3rd gear and wouldnt shift by itself, i dont know if im right but something to check into.
