My 2002 Saturn L100 odometer stopped working and isn't clocking miles at all.


Odometer
The odometer is an electronic digital display. Digits displayed are illuminated by the odometer backlight bulb. The odometer backlight bulb brightness is controlled by class 2 messages from the BCM to adjust the display for daylight and instrument panel dimming operation. The trip odometer and total odometer will show in this display area. The push button in the lower right side of the speedometer is used to toggle between the trip and total odometer readings. To reset the trip odometer, push and hold the button down for at least two seconds. The total odometer display has six digits with no decimal display. The trip odometer has four digits including a decimal point and indicates tenths of a mile or kilometer.
The body control module (BCM) stores the vehicle mileage. If the BCM fails, the cluster will display the last valid mileage that was sent before the BCM failed. For replacement of the BCM refer to the BCM section of this service manual. Replacement instrument clusters do not require odometer pre-setting before installation. If the instrument cluster is replaced, the mileage stored in the BCM will be sent to the new cluster via serial data, and shown in the odometer display.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

The odometer work the light for the number is very dim can hardly read it


The bulb may need replacing or you have a power drain. Does any other of the instruments/display appear dim at times? If so, that could indicate a power drain.

If you can, remove the necessary bits of the dashboard to get at the odometer bulb and replace it.

Be aware - on some vehicles getting at the bulb can entail a lot of work

Petrol per km


Note the odometer reading. Fill the tank completely. Drive for 500-2000 km, refilling the tank as necessary, and recording exactly how much fuel is required each time to refill. At the end of the test, refill the tank one last time - recording how much fuel it required - and note the odometer reading again.

Add up all the fuel used in the entire test, NOT including the first fillup but INCLUDING the last one. The result is the fuel consumed during this test.

Subtract your starting odometer reading from your ending odometer reading. The result is the exact number of km traveled during this test.

Divide the number of km by the number of liters (km/l) to get your average fuel efficiency.

My gmc terrain is showing "8" on dash where speedometer is. what does that mean?


The number 8 means that the digital display in between the speedometer and tachometer is reading your speed. It you set your display to trip odometer to trip one it will read 1, trip odometer 2 will read 2, fuel economy will read another number. and finally navigation will read 9.

Dim light in instument panel at night on my 1989 corvette.


there could be a bad connection between your dimmer switch and the lights themselves. often times through vibration and wear and tear the connectors degrade. check this first. also the dimmer switch itself could be the cause.check all the connections associated with the panel lights, look for loose wires and/or bad connections if there are none replace the dimmer switch
