How many miles are on this vehicle? I ask because the odometers in these car stop working around the 140k to 170k mark. Did the button comeback? Is this the mileage on the digital or analog trip meter?
The process to change the odometer gear is fairly straight forward and takes less than $20 and an hour. Let me know.

My 2002 Saturn L100 odometer stopped working and isn't clocking miles at all.


Odometer
The odometer is an electronic digital display. Digits displayed are illuminated by the odometer backlight bulb. The odometer backlight bulb brightness is controlled by class 2 messages from the BCM to adjust the display for daylight and instrument panel dimming operation. The trip odometer and total odometer will show in this display area. The push button in the lower right side of the speedometer is used to toggle between the trip and total odometer readings. To reset the trip odometer, push and hold the button down for at least two seconds. The total odometer display has six digits with no decimal display. The trip odometer has four digits including a decimal point and indicates tenths of a mile or kilometer.
The body control module (BCM) stores the vehicle mileage. If the BCM fails, the cluster will display the last valid mileage that was sent before the BCM failed. For replacement of the BCM refer to the BCM section of this service manual. Replacement instrument clusters do not require odometer pre-setting before installation. If the instrument cluster is replaced, the mileage stored in the BCM will be sent to the new cluster via serial data, and shown in the odometer display.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

Chevy cavalier 2005 87000 miles remote flakey, odometer won't display milage but will display trip data?


Hello William,

The key fobs are wearing out and need to be replaced. Sometimes taking them apart and cleaning the switch contacts and battery contacts will extend their lives but they are not built to last.

I believe your vehicles ECU sends the mileage data to the instrument panel cluster...in which the LCD odometer display has failed.

2008 Toyota 4Runner maintenance light is on eventhough I did changed the oil. How do I reset it?? I tried one of the suggestions which included turning the key to on and resetting the trip miles but...


You were close with re-setting the trip miles. Here are the steps:

(1) Turn key on, but do not start car. Keep pushing the trip miles button until you get to the odometer miles (the total mileage of the car), not the trip miles.

(2) Trun key off.

(3) Push and HOLD the reset button with one hand, then turn the key on (do not start the car) with the other.

(4) While you continue to HOLD in the reset button, you will notice the various warning lights blink and turn off. After about 10 seconds, release the reset button.

(5) Turn key off, then turn key back on and start car. The maintenance light will be off.

Showed originally 226,335 miles. overnite when turned on, odometer now has reset showing T_ _86.6 miles.


Most newer trucks and suv's have a digital odometer. the miles odometer and trip odometer are combinded. By pressing the little button that patrudes from the instument cluster will show you the orignal 226,335 miles. When you press and hold the button while the T__86.6 is displayed will reset the trip odometer. Some people use the trip odometer to monitor times between oil changes and tire rotations.

That just means you're due for an oil change. they automatically come on after 5000 miles. To reset the light, put it on the odometer display in your instrument cluster. turn the key off. now push and hold the odometer/trip reset button while you turn on the key to the IGN position. You will see 5 dashes on the odometer display, which will sequencially disappear and then go back to the odometer when it's done. after your odometer shows again, you can release the odometer/trip reset button and your maintenence light should be off.

Maintenace light


This may sound difficult, but it is really simple; the reset takes 30 seconds; here you go:

Get in the car.
Turn the key ON (do not start it)
Observe the odometer. Is it on ODO (total mileage driven?
If not, depress the reset stick by the speedometer from trip a or
trip b until ODO is shown, and the total mileage traveled is displayed.
Turn the key OFF
Press and HOLD the reset stick on the instrument panel (trip a/trip b button), and HOLD it until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON (do NOT start the engine)
Observe the odometer: You will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, and the 1 dash, followed by 5 zeros. The total mileage you started with will be redisplayed.
You may now release the reset stick.
Start the engine, the maint light will be reset.
What procedure does: It adds 5,000 miles to your odometer, and the light will come back on in 5 K miles.
