Why does your speedo still work on your ea falcon but not the odometer?

It is a common fault with the EA, EB and ED falcons as well as some Holden Commodore and Nissan models which share the same speedo components. The problem usually occurs when they get to about 200,000kms. What the problem is there is a very small cog inside your speedo which drives the odometer mechanism. This cog loks like something you would find in a toy. What you will find has happened is one of the teeth has broken off it and it can no longer drive the odometer. Because it is a common problem the part to fix it is available just ring around or try ebay. To fix the problem yourself pull out the instrument cluster then undo the screws that hold the front panel (4 fairly short ones on the side and 4 very long ones on the back), remove front panel. Then undo the four centre screws which hold in the speedo. Once you pull it out remove the trip meter plunger and then the needle by turning it carefully in a counter clockwise direcvtion several times until it comes out. Then remove the screws that hold on the faceplate and remove same. The whole assembly will come away. Then undo the two screws that hold on the circuit board and when that comes away you will see the small cog. You will be suprised how small it is. If you have your part then replace it and screw it all back together. When you replace the needle turn it in a clockwise direction and be sure to set the needle on zero.

How do you repair the digital odometer on a Chrysler Sebring?

If the digital odometer is not displaying its readout or is working intermittently it is a common occurrence that there is a bad solder connection on the instrument cluster.

When the digital odometer is not displaying its readout or the digital odometer displays intermittently this problem is frequently reported along with the vehicles tachometer not displaying any readout or working on an intermittent basis as well.

The link below shows the steps to repair a bad solder joint on an instrument cluster. It is fully illustrated and not too difficult, took me about an hour from start to finish.

How would you adjust the odometer on a 2000 model Holden Astra?

ILLEGALLY

It can be done if you possess specials electrical/computer equipment. There are web-sites offering this as a service. I will not link to them as it is generally only done for nefarious purposes (winding the mileage back to make the car sell for more).

However it is not actually illegal to adjust an odometer in some jurisdictions, as there is always the possibility of buying a second hand instrument pack/speedo and having the mileage reading on it altered to match the actual on the car it is then fitted to.

On most cars, you cannot change it without some special tools ... or something. However, when the speedometer fell of my 91 Toyota tercel (I mean, serously, It fell off!!!!) I took off the wheel, the dash cover, and then broke the side of the plastic cover to put it back on. I could have adjusted the mileage from there, but at 149000, it didn't seem worth it. And its highly illegal.

(the above would seem to refer to older vehicles that had a mechanical odometer that could easily be changed using a small screwdriver to move the wheels, rather than more moden LCD speedometers that were developed to prevent this.)

How do you replace an odometer on a 1990 Dodge Spirit?

The legality of replacing the odometer would be in question. I would take out the dash with the speedo and take it to a certified speedometer repair facility. Like stated before, I would buy a service manual or cd.

How do you replace the digital odometer light bulb on a '99 Saturn SL2?

THE ODOMETER IS BACK LIT. YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AND REPLACE THE BULB. IT INVOLVES REMOVING THE DASH COVER.

A dealer would charge a little over a hundred dollars. The light bulb would cost about $5.

My Saturn dealer told me it is $160.00 to change, because of dash removal, (as of 1/15/06) and most people wait until multiple lights go out. It can still be seen with a flashlight when needed.

What could be the problem if the blinkers do not work?

Check to see if you need to replace a fuse. It could also be the turn signal flasher. The flasher is usually a metal round-top, cylinderical object. It is found under the hood or sometimes, near the steering column To view the flasher for your vehicle, visit http://www.rockauto.com/ I found my flasher unit on my 93 lumina apv underneath the glove compartment, on the passenger side.

How difficult is it to repair the speedometer and odometer and how expensive?

The head unit pulls out with out unscrewing anything. You need two wire hooks to pull the head unit from the housing towards the steering wheel.It's a press fit in the dash panel.It is advisable to remove the steering wheel to facilitate removal. With SRS in the steering wheel you must disconnect the battery for at least 30 minutes before removing the SRS to prevent deployment of the air bag. You will also need to have the radio code to code the radio after reconnecting the battery. Due to the complexity of the unit it is advisable to replace it with a used unit.

Is the dome light burnt out? Mine said FUSE a lot until I replaced the dome light and then it stopped.

How to stop the odometer of Toyota Echo 2001?

If you are talking about the trip odometer push the button in and hold it for a couple seconds. It will reset. If you are talking about the constant odometer, there is no way to stop it, unless you disconnect it from the front left wheel well. By the way, that is illegal.

Where can you purchase an odometer bulb for a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?

YOU CANT BUY A BULB CALL YOU PONTIAC DEALER AND HE WILL EXPLAIN WHAT HAS TO BE DONE

The entire cluster has to be replaced. This has happened to me 2 times now. The part is about $300 and the dealer HAS to install it. It takes about 3 hours to be done. This is something that you have to do if you ever want to sell the car, since you have to have the mileage.

I have had the bulb on the odometer out for two years now. you can still read the mileage by pointing a flashlight to the odometer, from the side.

The Cluster DOES NOT have to be replaced, i fixed mine for less then $1. And if your dealer charged you 3 hours labour they ripped you off, it takes about 30 minutes to replace the cluster. Remove your top dash pad (remove airbag fuse first), remove your cluster, take off the back cover (6 screws) and then locate the odometer bulb, turn and remove it, then solder a small 12v bulb from your local auto parts store in its place, very simple and a hell of alot cheaper

All I did was remove the screws for the dash removed the dash then removed the cluster and the 6 screws. I then went to my local scrap yard did the same thing to a scraped sunfire there. They did not charge me for the bulb since I removed it my self. Only a Sucker would bring it to a dealership. I'm a girl and I had no problem took me less than an hour!

Question for Last answer:

WHAT IS THE PART NUMBER TO THE BULB?
