    I have the same problem...odometer quit working days AFTER I had the speedometer cluster changed (problem on '03, '04 Sierras) on my 2004 GMC 2500 Quadrasteer. Now the GM shop states that "problems are unrelated" and that I'll have to leave the truck 5 days to have the cluster pulled, sent away, rebuilt, reinstalled. BTW, none of this is done under warranty, even though it was a warranty part that caused the problem. I'm very disappointed because this truck (Quadrasteer) has been pretty much bullet proof...until this Now I'm considering getting rid of my 'Quad' because of GM's stubbornness and failure to step up to the plate and admit their error!

What would cause fuel gauge to stop working, and tripometer, and odometer to stop working?


I don't know that any one thing would cause these issues.

As for the fuel gauge, you may need to replace the sending unit in the tank.

As for the trip/odometer, you may need to replace the gears.

My 97 Chevy Malibu's odometer and trip read "error". How to fix?


You'll need to reset the Electronics Control Computer otherwise called the PCM/ECC/ or ECM. You can do this by unhooking the battery cable for about 15 minutes. If this does not reset it, you may have to do it for up to a day then try hooking the cables up again. See if this works.

92 Acura Legend with 232000 miles has an odometer that works for a whilethen stops working for a while. All other gauges work fine. What could be causing the this problem.


The connector in the back of the gauge could have a bent pin or bad connection to operate the odometer, or the odometer signal is bad from the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor).

Toyota Previa Odometer stopped working. Speedometer works fine, but odometer doesn't move. trip odometer also doesn't move.


Lucky you... we all dream of that day!

Why fix a gift of that ... you've got angels!

Suggestion:
1. Change oil every 3 months
2. If you really want to fix it... check the line, load with graphite as per manual.

F-350 speed/odometer not working and shifting hard


there is a speed sensor on the top of the rear differential. either the sensor is bad or it has become unplugged. when the truck doesnt know how fast it is going, the trans goes into "limp mode" to protect itself...whic causes it to shift hard and if u look you'll notice the o/d light is blinking
