Asked by Apr 05, 2015 at 02:39 PM about the 1988 Chrysler Le Baron Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

odometer  and speedometer were working until  pushed the trip reset button to zero trip.
After that the speedometer wworks but the odometer doesn't??/ When i pushed the reset,
it might have felt a little stiffer than usual. This is an analog dash. Is there a gear in the
speedometer that engages the odometer?? If so , do they break ,and what needs to be
replaced, thegear or the speedometer???

1 Answer

I final discovered that when I pushed the reset button, some teeth broke off a nylon gear so vthe odometer would not moove any longer. I was able to get a replacement gauge cluster. I found a place on the inernet to buy the new gear, and replace the cluster with the original one showing the proper mileage. I now have a gauge cluster to sell.
