This may be something that you don't want to tackle yourself, unless you are OK with electronics. You have to pull the gauge cluster, take it apart, and solder in some new resisters. In the top left hand corner of cluster, by the reset button, there are four resistors. They are something like 150 or 180 ohms. I would de-solder all of them and put all new ones in. Once again, don't tackle if you are not comfortable with electronics and solder.

My 2002 Saturn L100 odometer stopped working and isn't clocking miles at all.


Odometer
The odometer is an electronic digital display. Digits displayed are illuminated by the odometer backlight bulb. The odometer backlight bulb brightness is controlled by class 2 messages from the BCM to adjust the display for daylight and instrument panel dimming operation. The trip odometer and total odometer will show in this display area. The push button in the lower right side of the speedometer is used to toggle between the trip and total odometer readings. To reset the trip odometer, push and hold the button down for at least two seconds. The total odometer display has six digits with no decimal display. The trip odometer has four digits including a decimal point and indicates tenths of a mile or kilometer.
The body control module (BCM) stores the vehicle mileage. If the BCM fails, the cluster will display the last valid mileage that was sent before the BCM failed. For replacement of the BCM refer to the BCM section of this service manual. Replacement instrument clusters do not require odometer pre-setting before installation. If the instrument cluster is replaced, the mileage stored in the BCM will be sent to the new cluster via serial data, and shown in the odometer display.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

The display on my odometer is blank. What causes this and how do I fix this problem?


It is caused by an electrical failure of the instrument panel and the fix could be replacement of the whole instrument panel or just the part that deals with the odometer

If it is the same as 2006 model
Put the key into the ignition and press the odometer button. While holding down the odometer button, turn the key to the on position. You will see "-----"on the odometer display. It will count down "-----" "----" "---" "- -" "-". Then you will see zeros on the odometer display "000000". You can now release the odometer button. This will reset the maintenance light on your dash!!!!!!

This is if the cluster lighting still works, but the display is blank. Don't know if you mean the gauges in the cluster do not work.

How to fix the of my car no tach no speedometer no signal light dodge caravan 2002


1. Check the resistance of the Output Shaft Speed (OSS) sensor. It should be 300-500 ohms.

2. If the resistance is out of range, replace the sensor. 1. With the key in the Lock position, push in and hold the trip odometer reset button until the word Sof and a number show up in the odometer display. This is the software version number of the cluster.

2. Release the button and the cluster will display codes in the odometer and run through the calibration points with the gauges.

3. Note any codes.

4. The cluster will exit the calibration when the word End is displayed on the odometer.

2002 Volks. Jetta - digital display for odometer, clock, gears


Mine went blank after condensation inside windshield dripped behind the dash (sunroof drain problem). After a few months, in really dry winter weather, digital display time, gears, odometer came back. I assume water inside dash just needed time to evaporate. Sure beats $1000 to replace unit inside dash!

I assume the speedo is working. So it looks like you will need an instrument cluster. Your local GM dealer can get you an exchange unit.
