Hi Tracy:

You don't say whether the speedometer has also stopped working. If it is still working, then it's an internal problem in the speedometer unit which will likely need to be replaced.

If the speedometer has also stopped, it's often the speedometer cable that has failed; have the cable checked (it could come out of its socket at either end, or be broken). This is a much less costly repair than replacing the speedometer unit.

Often the old cable can be pulled from the sleeve, leaving the sleeve in place, and a new one pushed into the old sleeve to replace the defective cable.

Let us know any additional information.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: odometer light out on buick century not working

Sadly no, there is no fuse or bulb to replace. You either have to send the instrument cluster out for repair or replace it with a new unit from the dealer. You could also obtain a serviceable one from a salvage yard. Most shops should be able to replace the instrument cluster or advise who can repair it.

SOURCE: electronic odometer in a 2001 Buick Regal Gs does not work

I just wrote this for someone else too. If you're a handy person you can fix it yourself for about $12, it worked for me. All you need is a pack of resistors from RadioShack (On the computer chip there is a location that holds the 4-resistors that operate the odometer, they tend to fall off over the years, all you need to do is solder new ones on) and soldering gun. I did it myself and with this video's instruction and it only took me a little under an hour and $12.00. The most daunting part of it is getting the cluster out of the dash.

Hi i have a 1995 ford mustang 3.8 v6 5 speed my trip meter doesnt work ive had the instrument cluster replaced and still dont work odometer and tach work just not the trip how to fix thanks


Fords in that era are notorious for broken plastic gears in the assembly. If the Speedometer works and the odometer works but the trip odometer does not work, you can still have a broken or stripped plastic gear. They are very small and cost about $25 but they are a pain to replace. You can send your cluster off to have it repaired by a reputable shop. Just Google instrument cluster repair.

1988 Chevy pickup odometer doesn't work


they are spring loaded and mechanical. if a spring wears out or breaks it won't work. you can replace it with another one but the actual miles won't be there or you could go with a digital set.

How Odometers Work?


Mechanical odometers have been counting the miles for centuries. Although they are a dying breed, they are incredibly cool because they are so simple! A mechanical odometer is nothing more than a gear train with an incredible gear ratio.

Some odometer has a 1690:1 gear reduction! That means the input shaft of this odometer has to spin 1,690 times before the odometer will register 1 mile.

Odometers like this are being replaced by digital odometers that provide more features and cost less, but they aren't nearly as cool.

What's the problem when your odometer reading


are you saying that the odometer does not roll over the miles and that the speed of water does register the current speed?
Usually if the odometer is not working it is a problem inside the speedometer unit in the dash.If neither is working then you may have a broken connection to the unit on the transmission that sends electrical information to the speedometer.I hope this helpsregards

Old old Ford F250(1978), horn doesn't work, neither does gas or odometer (but I'm looking for fixes for the horn)


Chances are the horn is burnt out, the gas gauge will require a new fuel tank gas gauge sending unit and the odometer will require the speedomenter be removed and sent out for repair, the little gear drive for the odometer is broken

The odometer does not work. changed it out with other unit and still does not work. appears to be electrical or computer? speedo works fine


Speedometer, Odometer and Trip Odometer are driven by same circuit. Failure of Odometer and Trip Odometer suggests a circuit board fault on the instrument panel. A used instrument panel or repair of yours is probabaly best options.

The speedometer should malfunction too if speed sensor failed. If only the odometer and trip meter stopped working, it will most likely be the cluster itself. I had this problem, but since took the cluster out and give it a nice tap/knock, put it back in and it has worked since. Keep in mind that the VSS provides signal input to circuit that drives speedometer.

Instrument panel removal is not hard if you follow the shop manual instructions for trim removal. I've done it once on my 2.5TL to replace the D4 light bulb. PM your email address and I'll forward the pdf files for the procedure. The Vehicle Speed Sensor goes into the differential, and is what makes your speedometer and odometers work. If that fails, then your D4 light should start flashing, and either the speedometer will be bouncy or not work at all. Perhaps he forgot that 1Gs have a differential, so he said the tranny, but it's in the diff.

Hope helps.
