This make and model has a known issue with the odometer going dark and not being able to be seen. You can spend the money and get a whole new instrument cluster (400) or you can take the whole instrument cluster out and repair it. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/196821-odometer-blackout-problem-fixed.html

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer when ignition is turned on all

Are the gauges digital? If so, then when the ignition is turned on, it automatically does that. I have a 1996 Lincoln Town Car with digital gauges. We I turn on the ignition, it does the same thing your Explorer is doing. However, if your gauges are not digital, and it returns to normal, then I see no problem. If it does not return to normal, then the computer that controls those devices needs servicing.

SOURCE: My speedometer and odometer on my 98 ford explorer

the speedometer/odometer works on a cable that goes into the side of the transmission with one 10mm bolt holding it in. It sounds as if the cable has been broken,pulled loose, or siezed up. Its easy to check the end under the vehicle but its very complicated checking it inside the dashboard. If you are a do it yourself type of person, id look underneath and see if the connection under the vehicle is still connected. Look on left rear of the transmission for a cable that goes into it and is held with a "Y" bracket and a small bolt.The dashboard part is the type of job where u got to make sure you remember where each screw goes to get back together.

My electric odometer went out on my 02 ford explorer but all other lights work on my dash. How do i fix it?


You said the odometer went out, but does the speed odometer still work? How about the trip odometers? It could be the sensor went bad. Or it could be a connection to the dash. Has the dash been apart recently?

The odometer and trip odometer for my 1996 ford explorer stop working. However, the speed still works. Any suggestions??


The gear in the speedometer assembly is broken causing the odometer and trip odometer to be inop. You can either buy a new speedo head or buy a gear kit from an online source (google Ford speedo odometer inop)for the kit.

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.

The odometer works when it is cold and fades out when it is hot


If this is a digital odometer; it sounds like you may have some bad pixels. Unfortunately, there is no way around it if you already have the brightness on the odometer to the max, than to replace it.
