Many won't roll back, but you can often put a drill on the speedo and roll it forward to the proper mileage.
Asked in Pontiac Sunfire, Odometers
How do you replace the odometer bulb on a Pontiac Sunfire No fuses are fried so you assume that that is it?
Have fun with this one Most of the sunfire clusters (odometer, RPM, Speed) are sealed and the odometer is digital like an alarm clock and can not be changed without replacement of the entire cluster (odometer, RPM, Speed) good luck... this will require the removal of the dashboard in most cases. Andrew, a CANADIAN apprentice I'm not sure about newer Sunfires - but the information above is incorrect regarding older models. I replaced the bulbs on my instrument cluster without opening or compromising it on my 99 Sunfire. You have to remove the dashboard, then remove the instrument cluster. On the back of the cluster, you'll find that you can unscrew the bulbs from the back and replace them. --- CanadianCynosure

1999 Chrysler 300M instrument cluster lights do not always come on?
I had the same issue. In the instrument cluster there are 3 boards. The smallest board with the odometer and transmission status displays also has the 4 lights for the back lighting. This board is plugged into the main board and can easily be changed. Theses lights short out and cannot be changed out individually, the only thing you can do is replace this board.

How do i lower a digital odometer?
Mostly all the vehicles that I have worked on with a digital odometer cannot be lowered. Their is an actual manual odometer that reads to the engine computer that sends digital readout to the odometer, that cannot be reset or changed if you were to try to it would disable the vehicle and would need to be taken to the manufacturer garage for service to reset computer but would still give old odometer reading. If the computer were to come out of another car the odometer still wouldn't change. Government is very very strict with odometers these days. I disagree with above that digital odometers "can't" be tampered with, indeed they can provided the right hardware/software is available, many digital odometers can be manipulated through a connection made on the cars diagnostic plug or through connections made to the instrument panel cluster. A search of the internet will show up many companies that sell hardware/software to do digital odometers

Asked in Odometers
Can a digital odometer be adjusted?
Its not illegal to change the digital odometer on a car. Any digital odometer can be program. I can program a digital odometer from the oldest to the newest cars. Some cars I need to have them with me, but most can be sent over the mail. Go to usaodo.com. All cars have either an eeprom or a microcontroller that saves it in memory. You only need to know how to program the chip or the processor and what memory to change, what to change it to. Its not cheap equipment and software, but to have it done is cheap. Changing a digital odometer is not illegal, making profit off of it or not disclosing that it has been changed is illegal. I'm pretty sure that's illegal
