Question about Ford Escort

1 Answer

Odometer in my 1997 Ford Escort has quit working. The speedometer however works fine. I was told by Firestone that Ford no longer makes the replacement part needed to fix the odometer some sort of assembly which connects to the back of the instrument panel. I guess I'm going to have to pull one off of a junked car. Can you give me a brief description of what it looks like

OdometerGears.com has the gears and a pictorial on how to replace the broken gears to get the odometer work again. How to: http://www.odometergears.com/subpages/MustangHowTo.html
The gears are $25.00 each and $4.00 shipping If both the drive and worm gear are bad the total is only $54.00 for both.

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.

Odometer not working


If the speedometer is still working, but the odometer does not, most likely the cable is broken (separate drives for odometer and speedometer within a single cable) or the dash unit needs replacing...

Broke speedometer and odometer reader


you may need a car electrician as these things need troubleshooting.the only thing you can do is by checking all fuses however if other gauges and indicator lights are working then the fuse for the inst. cluster is ok.the speedometer has a sensor installed on the transmission while the odometer gets signal from the ECU so these two problems need separate solution

Speedometer and odometer stoped working


Dear Sir/Madam, The problem is electrical. The speedometer/odometer box needs to be removed from behind the steering wheel (or after removing the steering wheel)...The bulbfuses behind the panel need to be changed and new electrical connections made for the speedometer/odometer to work.
Thanks, Netpreneur

Odometer and trip odometer stopped working. Speedometer works.


The problem is going to be a worn or broken odometer gear. You can purchase the gear at odometergears.com for $29.00 with the shipping. Follow their how to repair on the Mustang to help in the repair. I believe you will have just the worm gear to replace.
