Asked by Mar 21, 2017 at 11:37 PM about the 2007 Honda Element SC

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Specifically, where is the mileage info stored, in the PCM on the vehicle or in the Instrument Cluster? I want to made sure the odometer on the replacement displays the actual mileage on my car (102,300).

When you order the instrument cluster you'll have a form to fill out. You'll put down the year, make, and model of the vehicle in addition to the vehicle identification number (VIN) and the odometer reading (mileage). They'll want the old cluster back, in the original box and packaging. There's a refundable core charge, usually $300, which you get back when you turn in the old cluster. That's how NAPA (where I work) does it. HTH. -Jim

Thank you. That's good info. I removed my cluster per a YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0rKA2M2UsY and removed the clear plastic "lens" which allowed me to remove and reinstall my needles on "0" (zero). Then I performed a cluster calibration test (per YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEVPjVpYp8I) and the speedo and tach worked perfectly! I'm walking about 6 feet off the ground now. I praise God for answering my prayer(s) and showing me how to get my gauges to read accurately without spending an exorbitant amount of money. Cost = $0.00 and 1 hour personal labor! :)
