the only way I know how to fix this is to replace the dash panel with a different one. Be sure to check local laws as this may not be legal.

I also had this problem with my 1994 Thunderbird - I replaced the Speedometer cluster twice and the Vehicle Speed Sensor. I finally found a wed site that sells Odometer Repair Kits and with instuction that included pictures I fix My Odometer/Trip. The web site that sells these repair kits is

You can either listen to the guy above that has no idea or you can simply replace the odometer gear. It will cost up to $30 to replace. They are made of plastic. If you stop using the trip odometer this will not happen again. Don't buy the overpriced repair kit for the job. It will run you about $50. $30 for the gears and $20 for the directions. If you are here to fix it yourself you should be able to figure it out yourself. If you can't you should use an ASE certified mechanic.

Good Luck!

1995 XR7 Odometer repair replace Analog with V8 Can it be taken apart and repaired or is the whole cluster changed Speedometer OK Odometer stopped. If done by shop does repair show up CarFax?

I had a 1993 Crown Vic that the odometer stopped working. I found out the government is very picky about messing around with it. You can replace it with a new one or a used one, but you must have a sticker put on the car, most of the time in the driver side door jam, that states that the odometer has been replaced, the mileage of the old odometer and the mileage of the new odometer. I found it was best to have a shop do this as they take care of the necessary red tape. (I know it is a little more costly, but in this case I felt the shop was the better way to go) It very well could show up on CarFax (some repair shops share data with Carfax - others don't). That is the type of thing that i would want to know if I was buying a car. If you do it yourself, there probably will not be a carfax report, unless you report it to them.
