Thanks. The odometer is driven by plastic gears inside the instrument cluster. Since the speedo works we know the info is getting to the cluster so the plastic gears are obviously stripped or broken. This is pretty common on these vehicles.

You'll need to replace the cluster or have it repaired.

Speedometer doesn't work


If the speedo does not work but the odometer does, the problem may be in the speedo head on the dash. If the odometer also does not work the problem may be the speed sensor in the transmission.

I have a 2003 ford escape & the digital odometer doesn't work correctly


Have the dealer do a speedometer accuracy test. They have a special tool that can electronically read the speed and then compare it to the readout of the odometer.

What's the problem when your odometer reading


are you saying that the odometer does not roll over the miles and that the speed of water does register the current speed?
Usually if the odometer is not working it is a problem inside the speedometer unit in the dash.If neither is working then you may have a broken connection to the unit on the transmission that sends electrical information to the speedometer.I hope this helpsregards

Check engine light comes on flashes 3 times


first you have to diagnose the cause of trouble.
How to get the codes on a 1998-1999 Dakota: Depress the trip reset and trip/odometer switches, and, while holding them, turn the ignition to ON/RUN, and wait about 5 seconds. This sends the car through a short self-test sequence that lights all segments of the odometer and shift selector read-out (where applicable). It will then display the stored error codes.
If that doesn't work, try holding in the trip/odometer button while doing the key on/off cycle 3 time. If that doesn't work, some people have reported success by doing the key on/off cycle 10 times instead of 3.
you are unable to pull the trouble codes yourself, wether it be because you aren't doing the procedure right or perhaps your truck doesn't have that feature, most auto parts stores have scanners and will pull your trouble codes for free. I know for sure that Autozone does this, and have heard that many others do as well. (They do this for free because they are hoping that if it turns out to be a bad oxygen sensor, for example, that you will purchase an oxygen sensor from them.) You can also purchase a scanner of your own;

My 2001 F150 odometer doesn't come on when engine starts. Delays a minute or so then comes on and works fine.


There are some cases of cold solder joints on the cluster causing a blank odometer display.

might be wroth checking, but time consuming and you need to be hand with a soldering iron to repair them.

good thread at F150online on this, with pictures.

My toyota corolla 2006 model has the maint. required lights on. what does that mean?


It means your car needs an oil change, based on mileage. If you take your car to get the oil changed, they can reset the light for you. If you want the light off now, try holding in the odometer reset button, with the key on but engine off, until little dashes appear then one by one dissapear. This procedure may need to be done either on the odometer total mileage or trip A mileage or trip B mileage.

Step 1: Have car off.

Step 2: Push and hold in trip reset button.

Step 3: While still holding button in, turn key to ON, but engine off. Wait for the little dashes to appear and disapear. If it doesn't work on the odometer setting. before turning key off, switch to Trip A setting. If the procedure doesn't work on the odometer setting or Trip A, try Trip B setting.

Step 4: Turn key off. Then start car. Maint. required light should be off.

Old old Ford F250(1978), horn doesn't work, neither does gas or odometer (but I'm looking for fixes for the horn)


Chances are the horn is burnt out, the gas gauge will require a new fuel tank gas gauge sending unit and the odometer will require the speedomenter be removed and sent out for repair, the little gear drive for the odometer is broken
