Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey

I need to change the odometer on my 97 Honda Odyssey

I replaced the Speedo Cluster on our 97 Odyssey because the odometer was broken. I bought a used one but I need to set it for 176900 miles. The replacement Speedo Cluster has an odometer reading of 154240.

    Thanks for the advice, that was my plan if I couldn't figure it out. I found the "how to" on another web site. Since my inquiry two hours ago, I have modified the replacement odometer, taken the car for a test drive and it works great. Now the odometer is within 300 miles of what it should be. Honda wanted $400 for the part and $125 for the labor. I found it used for $45 and spent 2 hours of my time.

The only way to adjust the odometer is to bring it to a dealership and have them do it. For the cost and hastle over 20000 (4 oil changes), I would recommend leaving it alone.

Does my 1996 honda accord have a vehicle speed sensor


most old cars have a speedo cable.
is the odometer dead too. (we need that answer now)

there are 3 class evolutionary systems.
cable
electric sender to cluster
and sender to PCM and PCM drives cluster.
but honda does this on diffr, dates than most cars. (i learned)

so lets do that. we login to alldata.com and look , so can you at any time,
once a month i do random cars.
what engine, sometimes this varies by engine, and trans.
neither stated so Ill toss coin each time.
a/t trans.
1996
has electronic (hall) speed sensor VSS and runs
engine, cruise. odometer and cluster.

the 96 has no speedo cable, and works in modern mode, very advance for this time
also any scan tool on earth fits the PCM scan port
and if VSS is dead, it tells you that with a DTC , vss dead.
saving all that work wondering why it dont work.
see/?
PCM must see it work
and cluster
and cruise
if only cluster fails, and both speedo and odometer then its bad.
if only speedo fails but not odometer , then speedo meter is bad.
its that easy.

My 97 mitsuibishi galant's speedometer works but not but odometer. it seems as if it is stuck but it wont move at all. please help


Probably need to replace the dash cluster that contains the odometer mechanism. The speed, or mph is controlled by a cable from transmission to the dash cluster. The odometer or miles put on the car runs off the cable through a series of small gears behind the cluster. There maybe a broken plastic gear or something has falling off the car behind the cluster (like a screw or nut) and has caused a blockage on the small gears.

1994 honda accord odometer not working


If the speedometer is working but the odometer is not, the problem is usually inside the speedo cluster.
You would get a used cluster or send yours to a shop for repairs.

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.

How do I change a Honda Odyssey odometer light bulb


Lower the tilt steering all the way down. Remove the two phillips screws at the top of the bezel and pull gently from the sides to release the clips. There are four phillips screws at holding the instrument cluster in. After removing the four screws tilt the cluster top towards you and unplug the two connectors. Pull the cluster out and replace the bulb, it will be directly behind the odometer.

Odometer stopped working


IF YOUR SPEEDO IS WORKING THEN YOUR VSS IS OKAY, BAD VSS WILL STOP SPEEDO AND USALLY CAUSE HARD SHIFTING. NORMALLY ODO IS CONTROLLED BY SERVO MOTOR WHICH MAY HAVE WENT OUT. CHECK EBAY FOR REPAIR SERVICES OR SIMPLY GET A SALVAGE CLUSTER AND HAVE MILEAGE RESET

97 GMC Safari speedo quit working (speedo/odometer/trip and cruz


If you replaced the sensor and still have same probllem. Then the problem is in the cable or display. You will have to trace all wires to see if there are any broken wires. You can use an ohmeter to test wires but not sure how you would do that while in motion. Is your check engine light on/
