static can cause the bcm to lock up.Disconnect the battery for a minute then reconnect.This should bring the items back on line. ~RicBNH~ www.ricbnh.com

The odometer on a 96 Ford Explorer is tied into the speedometer. If the speedometer is working then there is a gear problem inside of the speedometer causing the odometer to not work.


I would say you have a problem with the dash cluster. If both speedometer and odometer were not working I would say the problem may be the speed sensor but being only the odometer is out I would blame the cluster. I believe you will have to replace the cluster as a whole with a reconditioned unit. This will probably be a dealer item only.


If both odometer and speedometer are not working I would blame the vehicle speed sensor. If just the odometer isn't working the gauge cluster assembly needs to be replaced with a reconditioned one.


There are two possible actions: 1) Replace the speedometer head assembly, because that is where your problem is. 2) Ignore the broken odometer and forget about it. The speedometer and odometer are one assembly. The same input that drives the speedo also drives the odometer, so you have a problem in the head itself.


if your speedometer and or odometer isn't working correctly under your motor is a wire clip for you speedometer and odometer jus replace the clip


There is not an odometer cable. The odometer is driven by the speedometer. If the odometer is not working then you will have to replace the speedometer head.


If the speedometer and the odometer are not working, I would suspect the VSS (vehicle speed sensor). If only the speedometer is not working I would suspect the instrument cluster has problems.


Have your mechanic check the speedometer cable connections. They no longer use a cable. It is electronic. If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, the problem is in the dash cluster. If both the speedometer and odometer are not working, the speed sensor in the transmission may be at fault.


If the speedometer and abs light are not working then you have a speed sensor problem. If the speedometer or odometer are not working then you will need to take it to the dealership and have them send it off for repair.



If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, I would suspect the dash cluster is at fault. If both speedometer and odometer are not working I would suspect the speed sensor on the transmission is at fault.


If the speedometer works, but the odometer is not working, there could be a fuse blown if the odometer is digital. If the odometer is not digital, then a gear is broken in the speedometer cable. It should be replaced.


The odometer runs on the same electronic gear driven sensor as the speedometer so if the speedometer is working and the odometer is not the problem is in the "Speed head" (speedometer unit in the dash). Mine and several others I have seen break at about 40,000 and will need replacing.


The gears in the speedometer are stripped. If the odometer is working then you have input.


If you open the odometer, there are two small plastic gears. One is connected to the speedometer, the other to the odometer. The speedometer gear drives the odometer gear. In all likelihood, one of these gears is missing a few teeth. I have the same problem with my Ramcharger, same year.


If your speedometer has stopped working just put the key in the off position and hold down the trip odometer button until you see some codes come on the odometer. That should reset your speedometer. I could not figure out which fuse was for the speedometer and some one told me about this and it worked right away.


If the speedometer and odometer are both not working, I would blame the speed sensor. If only the speedometer does not work and the odometer does work, the cluster is bad.


Does your odometer work? If the speed sensor goes faulty both speedometer and odometer stop working.


There is no such thing as an "odometer sensor." There is a vehicle speed sensor that is located on the output shaft housing of the transmission. That sends info to the speedometer. From there, the speedometer and the odometer are both operated internally, so if your speedo is working, but the odometer isn't, you have a problem inside the speedo head assembly.


They both work off of the same signal. If the speedometer works but the odometer doesn't, the odometer has failed.


I had a similar problem on my old 90 Nissan pathfinder and it ended up been a Speedometer cable that broke.


If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.


If the odometer stopped working and the speedometer and cruise control still work, you have a bad odometer. It is part of the speedometer assembly so the whole thing will have to be replaced.



The odometer is separate from the speedometer. The odometer counts how many miles you have driven total, while the speedometer shows how many miles you will travel in an hour if you maintain a given speed. You should immediately take you vehicle to a qualified service technician, and get the odometer fixed.
