I have a Canadian made 2014 Dodge Charger and I need to change the odometer reading from kilometers per hour to miles per hour how do I do that

You will most likely have to have a dealer order a different inst. cluster that is set up for miles. This is not a warranty condition and you would have to pay to do this. Dealer will call order in with VIN number and KM and the cluster exchange company will calculate how many mile it equates to and preprogram cluster.

I have worked at a chevrolet dealer for 12 years and have probably replaced a few hundred of these clusters. the speedometer portion of the cluster always goes out, I have had very few speed sensors go out, and when they do the check engine light will come on and the trans. won't shift, if the new cluster is too expensive they are easy to replace if you just buy it outright, you can also get a wrecking yard cluster your miles just won't match

Instument Guages

well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it
