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.
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.
If the speedometer is not accurate, the odometer is probably not either. If you do not know how far you have driven, you can not calculate mileage with any certainty.If the speedometer is not accurate, the odometer is probably not either.

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.
I have the same problem on an '89 Dodge Dynasty. I am told that the odometer and speedometer in my car are driven by separate cables and that I simply need a new cable for my odometer to function properly again. I have not verified this information, but it might get you on track.
If the odometer has failed, does the speedometer still work? They are both driven by a cable which spins. If the speedometer is still working, than the odometer has jammed. Probably a dealer fix.
You don't. There is no such thing as an odometer or a speedometer cable on that vehicle. The speedometer is electrically operated using a signal from the vehicle speed sensor. The odometer is driven by a little electric motor in the speedometer head assembly. If the speedo is working, but the odo isn't, you need a speedometer head assembly. If both are inop, you COULD need a speedo head, but there could also be a problem elsewhere in the system.
In a 1990 the speedometer is electronic, but the odometer is gear driven. These gears fail frequently. I would suggest visiting the IPD website. They have the gear along with an instructional DVD to help the process.
There is no fuse for the odometer on any car. The odometer (digital) is driven off a circuit board that is part of the instrument panel.
in a car the odometer tell you how far you have driven. so it's measures how far you've travelled
The odometer showed that the car had driven 24,000 miles since it was built. He suspected that the car's odometer had been illegally rolled back by the owner.
There is no such thing. The odometer is electrically driven from the PCM via the vehicle speed sensor. If the odometer has failed you need to replace the cluster.
Drive on a freeway or highway where there's a speedometer check point. Set your odometer to zero, drive the exact speed limit (try to use cruise control), and after the speedometer check point is over (5 miles), you will be able to determine if your speedometer is working correctly based on the miles driven according to your odometer and the end of the checkpoint.
An odometer is the gizmo that tells how many miles you have driven.You may use it anytime you wish. (lol)
Now why would you want to do that??? You wouldn't be able to tell how many miles you've driven! It is a crime to disconnect the Odometer.
These are usually sealed units and for the most part are not repairable. You might get another one from a junk yard ... or try searching the internet. The other possibility is that the physical cable that drives a mechanical speedo could be broken. Some of these are driven off the transmission, others are driven off one of the front wheels.
Electronic and not cable.
Depends on age of vehicle and average mles driven
home many miles your car has driven.the mileage of the vehicle
This question is not answerable.No year or trim level information provided.The question is written so you don't know if the aser is interested in the whole Speedometer or just the odometer.And finally as this is driven by a electrical signal you need to check three things.FuseSender on transmissionWiring and connections between.
Odometer Fuse Box RelationshipThat depends on the type of odometer. For example, a mechanical odometer which is driven by a mechanical cable will NOT have any connection to the fuse box OTHER than for lighting, IF the odometer has a light inside of it.On the other hand, if the odometer is of the digital electronic type, it will, in a remote manner, be connected to a fuse which is usually a fuse designated for the "Instrument Panel." In this case, the digital odometer is usually built into/on the Instrument Panel Printed Circuit Board [PCB], and thus will be connected to the fuse box via the PCB wiring harness.
