Hi there, if the odometer is electronic, you can reset the system by unplugging the battery post for 10 min. re attach the post after this time. this will reset the CPU. if its analog, you may have a jam in the actual cable.

1999 jimmy odometer stopped working


My guess would be a bad connection at the harness for the cluster, or a problem with the printed circuit board inside the cluster.

Reset Procedure for your "Maintenance Required" lamp (MAINT REQD)


I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

Hope this helps!

How do i read my 91 ford explorer odometer?


Are you looking at the odometer or the tripometer? If it only has 5 digits it does not read the tenths of a mile only whole miles. So just read it as milage like 10 miles not 1.0 miles.
