Make sure it isn't shut off. Press the button in the cluster and see if it comes on. If it is a loaded car you may have to turn it on with the info/reset/ panel in dash or on the right side of the steering wheel.

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.

Where are all the ground wires located on a 2008 chevy cobalt?


It wouldn't be a ground problem If it were the whole instrument cluster would be dead . Checking the BCM an the IPC for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes is the proper way to diagnose this type problem . Not worrying about grounds .
Odometer
The vehicle odometer is calculated and stored electronically in the body control module (BCM) and is sent via the serial data circuit to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) for display. The BCM calculates and stores the mileage based on the vehicle speed serial data information from the PCM/ECM. The IPC displays the season odometer information from the BCM in the driver information center (DIC). The odometer will display error if the IPC detects an invalid odometer data from the BCM. After an invalid odometer data is received from the BCM, the IPC will display the last known odometer reading for 1.5 seconds before error is displayed in the DIC.
Speedometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed based on serial data message from the body control module (BCM). The BCM receives vehicle speed data from the PCM/ECM via the serial data circuit. The speedometer will default to 0 km/h (0 mph) if:
• The PCM/ECM detects a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit.
• The BCM detects a loss of serial data communications with the PCM/ECM.
• The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the BCM.

Your best bet would be to take it to the dealer !

My 1999 Isuzu hombre odometer not working how to fix???? Asap


if the speedo works, and odometer not then the odometer is bad.
what is VIN/ in what country, so i can look this up.
1999 are transitional year, in USA fed laws on this changed.

on old cars, the speedo cable ran both . so if one dies only
that which died is bad.
in later years, the speedo is run by ECU, from VSS inputs
and obometer is digital and stored in the ECU. (or BCM)
and the cluster is just a digital display and if its dead , then it is dead. this display.
one even newer cars, comm errors on CAN-buss can cause this.
2004 up. but you dont have this bus.
did you scan it first and check all fuses.>?
scan it to see that VSS is wrong, by live data stream, or DTC error, driving for VSS dead.
ill not post details lacking country , as other countries laws vary on ODOMETER TYPES> big time.

The trip meter and odometer digital numbers are not being displayed as complete numbers


This is caused by the display unit slowly failing and it is a common problem on Opel & Vauxhall cars. The internal circuit board is fed by a flat ribbon cable with many tiny connections. Heat, vibration and age will often cause one or two of these connections to fail, which results in dead pixels on your screen. The best solution is to buy a new display unit, although if you research using Google you may find somebody who offers a repair service.

You have a Trip Odometer Reset Button located near the Digital Odometer Display.
When Jumping your Van: most likely it caused an electrical problem affecting your gauges. It is actually common for this to happen. Hopefully permanent damage has not been done.
To properly reset your Speedometer and Tachometer (barring permanent electrical damage):
1. With the Key IN the Ignition and in the OFF (not ACC, On or Start) Position
2. Push in and hold-in the Trip Odometer Reset button.
3. When "sof 4.0" appears: release the Button and WAIT.
4. There maybe some "E" Codes that may appear.
5. Continue to let the System run its course. There should be a great light show on the dash along with the Tach and Speedometer needles dancing all over the place.
6. In about 30-seconds it will complete it's Reset Cycle.

Again let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions REPLY in the Comments Section of this Post.

Can I get the codes by using my on/off ignition switch or do I have to use a reader


To query and OBD-I-era computer for these codes, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to run (not start), then off, then run, then off, then run (that's 3 runs and 2 offs). Leave the key in the run position.

The check engine light will turn on for a few seconds, then turn off, then (sometimes after 20-30 seconds) start flashing. The flashes are counting out 2-digit trouble codes. Fast flashes count up each digit, with a longer pause between digits. On TJ's with a digital odometer, the code numbers are printed on the odometer in addition to flashing the check engine light. 55 indicates the end of all codes. Once you've got your code list, consult the table below to see what they mean.

OBD-II information is more complex, so the codes for 1998 and newer Jeeps can't be displayed by flashing the check engine light. However, those vehicles which have digital odometers will display the codes on the odometer. I've verified this personally on a 1999 WJ. For those vehicles without digital odometers, or for anybody who wants an English description rather than just a numeric code, an OBD-II code scanner ($100-300) can be plugged in under the dash. OBD-II codes can be looked up online here.


These codes were taken from the '95 XJ/YJ factory service manual.

I hope help you woth this. Good luck (rated this).

2002 Volks. Jetta - digital display for odometer, clock, gears


Mine went blank after condensation inside windshield dripped behind the dash (sunroof drain problem). After a few months, in really dry winter weather, digital display time, gears, odometer came back. I assume water inside dash just needed time to evaporate. Sure beats $1000 to replace unit inside dash!
