I'm not sure, but even though it's not the original mileage, it may still be illegal to change it, but again, I'm not sure...

Is it electronic or is it a dial ?

If it's a dial, take it apart

Actually there are laws against that very thing.I think a liecensed speedometer shop may be able to move the miles up , but I dont think the hardware will let you move them back.

Electronic gas gauge Gives wrong reading, after replacing fuel pump and floater.


instrument cluster is just for monitoring. but on modern cars there can be integrated circuits to calculate the actual amount of fuel inside tank. so sender sends signals and dashboard decodes it and show the amount on gauge.

which car do you have? if it is a later model with such system you may need to reset related software to match with new sender unit on pump or floater. (dealer can do this for you)

for example if you have a new daylight driving lights(LKM) controller on new BMW's if you replace it with a new one you need to code it to match with your car. if not it wont operate correctly.,

But there is an exeption. when sockets are broken or connections are wrong, fuel and temp gauges act erratic. they jump, pulsate or dont work at all. before replacing anything more be sure that sender unit or whole asembly is the correct part for your car. second be sure that connection has been done correctly.

I have 2003 nissan sentra, the readings on the millage meter does not show up as a result i don't know and can't tell the millage of the car. What could be the problem


There is not much you can do. The instrument cluster is one piece and is not serivable. You will need to replace the entire instrument cluster. In this case you order the cluster with the milage on it and then you would get a new cluster with the milage in it already. I hope that helps you

I have a 1998 Sunfire and the odometer will not show. The digital deplay only show the trip milage. Whatdo I need to do to fix this?


on a car that old your only real choice is to buy a replacement used instrument cluster on craigslist or eBay or call around to local junkyards. it just does not make much sense to spend hundreds fixing a nonessential part on a 500 dollar car. it will not be worth one more cent with a working odometer.
you can most likely find a video of someone pulling a late 90s GM cluster on youtube.com to see how it is done.

I have a 94 sl1 saturn,the speed odometer works,the milage odometer dosnt .How do i fix it


Buy a working used cluster on ebay or from a junkyard and swap it. Or buy the repair kit for this problem, they used to sell them on ebay, and repair your cluster. Look on youtube for a video about pulling the dash cover and instrument cluster.

Digitial dash will not work wnet black and then smoke came from unit


sorry mate, had the same issue 2 months ago.
i totally dismantled the the instrument cluster and found 2 trasnsistors totally burnt.
the transistors are propritary to chrysler and can not be replaced.
you will have to source a new instrument cluster.
as a foot note, the milage on the car is stored in the cluster so the replacement cluster will change the milage reading for the car. with any luck the wreck it will come from will have a lower odometer reading.
have a nice day
