    To start, a 2 mile trip indicates 8 or 10 miles, the total mileage jumped on the odometer since last serviced was 20k. around town speed indicates around 70 mph. I am leaning on a computer malfunction.

IF THE TRANSMISSION IS SHIFTING OK AND NO CHECK ENGINE LAMP U MAY HAVE A DEFECTIVE CLUSTER. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER RECEIVES A SPEEDO SIGNAL FROM THE OUTPUT SPEED SENSOR. IF THE SENSOR IS MALFUNCTIONING THE TRANSMISSION WILL SHIFT ERRATIC AND U WILL GET A CHECK ENGINE LAMP. IF THATS NOT THE CASE THEN THE CLUSTER IS DEFECTIVE

1998 Buick LeSabre Odometer and Trip Odometer quit working


Your first step should be to have the vehicle hooked up to a factory or professional scan tool .
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
The DTCs when set, indicate that the instrument cluster has detected a malfunction in a particular circuit or other system. The instrument cluster is programmed with routines for internal tests that the instrument cluster follows only under prescribed conditions (test conditions). When these conditions exist, the instrument cluster tests certain circuits or systems for a malfunction (failure conditions). When the failure conditions are true, a DTC is set current. Some DTCs command the instrument cluster to illuminate the SERVICE VEHICLE SOON indicator.
The DTCs are not stored in the instrument cluster's electrically erasable programmable read only memory (EEPROM). The DTCs are not retained after a battery disconnect.
Instrument Cluster EEPROM
Important: The EEPROM is soldered into the instrument cluster. You can not service the EEPROM separately.
The instrument cluster contains a data storage device that can save critical data even when battery power is removed. This device is called the electrically erasable programmable read only memory (EEPROM). The EEPROM is used by the instrument cluster in order to store the following information:
• The odometer readings
• The options settings
• The manufacturing information
Speedometer and Odometer
An electronic circuit operates the speedometer. The vehicle speed sensor (VSS), located in the transaxle, generates an ac voltage with a frequency proportional to the speed of the vehicle. The voltage goes to the powertrain control module (PCM) and then to the speedometer circuit board in the instrument cluster. The solid state unit drives the pointer of the speedometer.
The same buffered speed signal from the PCM is processed by the speedometer circuit board in order to drive the odometer. The odometers are operated by a stepper motor that responds to pulses from the speedometer circuit.
