My thought would be that your vehicle is originally from a country that uses kilometers. The Speedometer face plate may have been swapped out but the odometer wasn't converted. One mile equals 1.6 kilometers, hence the difference you're recognizing.

How do you replace an odometer cable on a 1982 Chevrolet Camaro?

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.


Why is your odometer not working but your speedometer is?

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.


Does speedometer reading being off affect true gas mileage calculation?

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.

Why will the speedo work on a 1996 Nissan 200sx but the trip and odometer will not?

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.


Why would the speedometer in a 96 Dodge Caravan work but the odometer not and how do you fix it?

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.


My 1999 Honda CRV odometer stopped working while all the oher gauges are fine so if this is a fuse where is it located?

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.


How do you replace the odometer cable on a 1995 Ford Thunderbird LX?

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.


How do you fix the odometer on 1990 240 Volvo dl?

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.
