You are probably looking at the trip mileage, and not the odometer (total ) mileage

Why ford escort wagon 98 odometer not workind, speedometer OK?


If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the problem is inside the speedometer. Probably a stripped gear.

The odimiter is not working cannot tell milage


If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, you will need to have someone remove the cluster and have it repaired.

My Nissan Quest 2000 odometer and speedometer stopped working. The mechanic said that he thought it was due to a sensor and he has since replaced the sensor. He now says that the problem is still not fixed...


yes it does, this is why you have a written work order with the milage from your speedo and the milage from the replacement speedo on them with all other info for proof when selling or submitting info at secretary of state office for correct title odometer reading. Plus a lower milage speedo just makes you feel better don't it? WOW, 69,000 0n a 95? to bad its not under warranty. I just hate to spend money and not fix the problem. Ask mechanic to verify in writing that this fix will fix the problem and if not is he gonna fix with no further charges. Okay then put old sensor back in or use that money spent toward the real fix. You can't let someone just keep on guessing, you could spend $100.00 + and still not get a resolution. Just a temper.

How would you repair the speedometer


replace, 1 they are usually sealed to stop tampering of the milage.
and 2 they are not easy to fix it is easier to get a new one or one from a wreck and get a dealership to write down the milage when it was changed to ensure continuity of your milage record. if you come to sell.

THE SPEEDOMETER OR THE ODOMETER? THE SPEEDO TELLS YOU HOW FAST YOU ARE GOING AND ODOMETER READS THE MILAGE OR KILOMETERS TRAVELED.
IF YOU MEAN THE ODOMETER THEN THE CAR IS PROBABLY FROM CANADA AND CAN NOT BE CHANGED. I'VE RUN INTO THIS BEING NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER.
I AM NOT SHURE IF YOU CAN CHANGE OVER TO A NEW CLUSTER (INSTRUMENT PANEL) LEGALLY OR NOT. CALL YOUR LOCAL D.M.V. AND THEY CAN TELL YOU. THE MILAGE WOULD HAVE TO BE CONVERTED AND THEN THE MILAGE STORED IN THE ENGINE/TRANS. COMPUTER WOULD NOT MATCH THE ODOMETER READING. SORRY HOPE YOU CAN FIND A SOLUTION IF YOU NEED TO.
IF YOU MEAN THE SPEEDOMETER THE THERE IS A ENGLISH/METRIC BUTTON TO PUSH TO CHANGE THE DISPLAY. GOOD LUCK..
