    why **** a poor rating, I'm giving the best solution possible??????????YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL IS FAULTY!!!!!!! There is not other way around this but replacing the entire unit. You odometer screen is out, because its defective, and may be repaired for 4x's the amount of a new unit!!Tryin tohelp you out and save you money, but you voted POOR!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You were correct that this is a common problem with these units, but incorrect about the solution. You need to replace the 4 resistors in the upper right corner of the instrument panel as you view it from the back side. Using 150 ohm 1/2 watt resistors from Radio Shack will get it working for less than $2. And you rank yourself as a guru? Wow! :-P

    Sparky1990....i based my solution on the little info that was given. Not all instrument panels fail because one particular resistor. Most consumers here arent looking at rebuilding a part, instead are looking for a rational solution to determine the route of a repair. BTW i dont rank myself guru, consumers do. So sad to see a you use such poor choices of words on this website. Grow up..get a life!!

SOURCE: odometer and trip meter

If the odometer is part of the speedo head then the unit will need to be pulled out and sent out to an authorized GM repair station, there are no parts sold for it except the entire speedometer, and that is very expensive.

Cadillac catera 01' odometer and trip meter stopped working at exactly 73,200 miles - everything else in the gauge cluster still works.


this sounds like a bad speedometer cluster, you stated everything else works so i assume the speedometer is working and just the odometer and trip stopped working and so the speedometer will need replacing. good day.

The odometer stopped working.The speedometer works but not the odometer or the trip meter.


inside the cluster is a min-computer that controls both of these

therefore, assuming you do not have a wire loose then it appears you will need a new cluster assembly

My speedometer quit but the odometer still works (1998 F150) can you solve this


Usually it's the opposite. The speedometer works and the odomater and trip meter go inop. Most likely the speedometer assembly is bad. If the odometer is working you have a signal from the gray and black wire .

How do I change out a non working odometer/trip meter?


This has been a problem with VOLVO especially the 850 models what happens is the plastic senssor inside the speedometer breaks off and it will tell you the road speed but ODOMETER AND TRIP METER will not work and the only way to fix it is to take the cluster out and sometimes it can be soldered back in place or get a used cluster and replace the unit sorry but it is not a simple fix

The dashboard


You may have a couple separate concerns. The fuel gauge if it is on empty may have a hole in the float. The speedometer odometer and trip meter is probably a broken gear in the speedo assembly. If the speedometer itself works it is getting a signal from the speed sensor.
