The computer MAY be the problem, also the tranny cable may be loose or sensors may be going bad, which is a VERY spendy fix. Like a 4 figure fix. The location though of the computer IF you wanted to tackle the project is attached to the firewall on the passenger side behind the glove box / dash board. It's a fix that is not easy, and can not be done by anyone other than someone that really knows what they are doing. Hope it helps.

I have a 2003 ford escape & the digital odometer doesn't work correctly


Have the dealer do a speedometer accuracy test. They have a special tool that can electronically read the speed and then compare it to the readout of the odometer.

No odometer reading


unfortunately, the car's BCM or body control module is bad. only a dealer or repair shop that can program it(which is very few) can perform this repair

The odometer reading disappeared on my '98 Volvo S70.


Have you found anything out. I brought my volvo in to have the battery replaced and when I picked it up I noticed the odometer was blank (no -----) just blank. I was told it was not related and probably just a bulb. Not a bulb I have no idea. I don't want to replace the cluster unless I'm sure what have you found out. (all my other gauges are fine speed, tach, trip fine)
