Hi,
Are you able to have any lights on without the ignition being on ?

If it is all dead without ignition on, check fuses and identify a possible short causing the constant supply to blow the fuse. Without this supply, the odometer will forget it's setting.

If all fuses are ok, it may be a broken wire to the binnacle (gauges), or even a coin back-up battery if it has one.

How to reset mile ometer on bmw 3series 2litre diesel se 1999model


Why is it you guys are not letting us know your names lately? Press in the button on the instrument panel and repeat until odometer resets. Only the trip meter will reset, not the mileage counter. Regards John

How do you reset the service indicator light on a 2012 Toyota Yaris


With key in the off position hold trip indicator while turning the key to the ON position. DO NOT START the car and keep holding the trip button. You should see some dashes where your trip usually is. let them go until it flashes zeros. It should be self explanatory after this point.
If this does not work try turning car to ON position then goto trip A then turn car off and do the above again. If this does not work Try starting on trip B like you did with A. It should work on odometer or trip A. honda and toyota are very close to the same like this. I always get them confused. Worst scenario your trip meter is reset to zero

Trip indicator


while sitting in the car with doors closed and the key off. push and hold the trip odometer button on the cluster then turn the key on while holding the button down, this should put the cluster into a self diagnostic mode. if that does not start the diag mode then do the same thing but turn the key to accessory position. if nether of those work then the cluster must be removed.

The trip odometer does not work.


Your problem is within the odometer its self. I would check with a local parts house to see if they deal with a speedometer repair business. Then the unit can be removed and sent out for repair, saving you the cost of buying a new one.

Hi... i'm new to the foreign car market...


1st check the #4 fuse (10A) and #10 fuse (7.5A) on the 'under-dash' fuse block.
then #9 fuse (10A) on the 'engine bay' fuse block.

if the fuses are good, the gauge assembly has has "self-diagnostic" feature.

Self-diagnostic Procedure

The gauge assembly has a self-diagnosis function.
. The beeper drive circuit check
. The indicator drive circuit check
. The LCD segments check
. The gauges drive circuit check (speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, coolant temperature gauge)
. The communication line check (the coolant temperature signal line between the gauge and ECM/PCM)


Entering the Self-diagnosis Function:
1. Push and hold the trip/reset button.
2. Turn the lighting switch ON.
3. Turn the ignition switch ON (ll).
4. Within 5 sec., turn the lighting switch OFF, then ON and OFF again.
5. Within 5 sec., release the trip/reset button, then push and release the button four times repeatedly.

NOTE:
. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the dash lights brightness controller operates normally.
. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the trip/reset button is used to start the beeper drive circuit test and the gauge drive circuit check.
. lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1.2 mph (2 km/h) or the ignition switch is turned OFF, the self-diagnosis mode ends.

The Beeper Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the beeper sounds five times.

The Indicator Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode. the indicators lights (such as: Seat belt indicator light, Door/hatch indicator light, Brake system light. Charging system light, Low fuel indicator light, maintenance required light) blink.

The LCD Segment Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the odo/trip segment blinks five times.

The Gauge Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the speedometer, the tachometer, the fuel gauge, and the coolant
temperature gauge needles go from the minimum position to maximum position, then return to the minimum position.
NOTE:
After the beeper stops sounding and the gauge needles return to the minimum position, pushing the trip/reset button, starts the beeper drive circuit check {one beep), and the gauge drive circuit check again.
The check cannot be started until the gauge needles return to the minimum position.

The Communication Line Gheck:
In the seif-diagnosis mode, after the odo/trip LCD segments check, the self-diagnosis starts the communication line check.
lf all segments comes on, the communication line is OK.
lf the word" Error" is indicated, there is a malfunction in the communication line between the gauge assembly, the multiplex control unit, and the ECM/PCM,

Ending the Self-diagnosis Function:
Turn the ignition switch OFF.

Note: lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1 .2 mph (2 km/h), the self-diagnosis function ends.
-----------------------

If everything works correctly during the check, check your VSS (vehicle speed sensor)

Usually, you hold the "trip" button down for a few seconds, and that resets it to zero.
