    Jan 2008 my odometer stopped at 224k miles. Speedometer and all other guages work well. Odometer is an analog display also, what can be done about this?

    I have the same problem on my 1995 Ford Ranger. My gas tank has some sort of seal issue, or maybe just a hole (If you fill the tank all the way up with gas, it leaks)- and so my gas gauge no longer works. I used the odometer trip to help me determine when it was time to get gas again, since I only put 7 or so gallons in at a time. Anyway, I was on a road trip and my odometer just stopped working. The speedometer works just fine. I was at 106,000 miles when that happened about 4 years ago. I would estimate that i'm now around 160,000 miles or so.

Since your speedometers work, the problem is in the gearing to the trip and mileage odometers. Simple problem, major pain to fix but, remove instrument cluster - you'll have to remove speedo cable to get it out. Use the old Mark I eyeball to check for broken parts. Might even have to drop steering column - disconnect air bag first!

My 2003 ford focus speedometer stops working sometimes as does the elecyric odometer- sometimes both at same time. Other gauges work fine. The odometer goes to just dashes in place of the actual mileage...


Usually if both the odometer and speedometer stop working, the problem is the speed sensor on the transmission. You should also have a trouble code in the engine computer.
If one component works but the other does not, the problem is usually the speedometer head in the dash.

Cadillac catera 01' odometer and trip meter stopped working at exactly 73,200 miles - everything else in the gauge cluster still works.


this sounds like a bad speedometer cluster, you stated everything else works so i assume the speedometer is working and just the odometer and trip stopped working and so the speedometer will need replacing. good day.

Odometer/trip odometer stopped working.


There is a gear that breaks inside the speedometer causing the odometer and trip odometer to be inop. There are stores online that sell just the gear . If you are mechanically inclined try that. If not have a qualified technician install it.

The odometer and trip odometer for my 1996 ford explorer stop working. However, the speed still works. Any suggestions??


The gear in the speedometer assembly is broken causing the odometer and trip odometer to be inop. You can either buy a new speedo head or buy a gear kit from an online source (google Ford speedo odometer inop)for the kit.

Odometer is not working


SOUNDS LIKE THE GAUGE CLUSTER IS BAD OR HAS A BAD GROUND

Odometer and trip odometer stopped working. Speedometer works.


The problem is going to be a worn or broken odometer gear. You can purchase the gear at odometergears.com for $29.00 with the shipping. Follow their how to repair on the Mustang to help in the repair. I believe you will have just the worm gear to replace.

The dashboard


You may have a couple separate concerns. The fuel gauge if it is on empty may have a hole in the float. The speedometer odometer and trip meter is probably a broken gear in the speedo assembly. If the speedometer itself works it is getting a signal from the speed sensor.
