The instrument cluster

Asked by Nov 25, 2015 at 06:50 PM about the 2008 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am trying to sell my 2008 police cruiser. Unfortunately I am running in to problems selling for reasons:
A. The instrument cluster does not show mileage. I have confirmed with my mechanic that when plugged in the odometer reads the right value (99,400)
B. People are interested in getting the idle time (because it is a police vehicle)

For (a) can I get this information out via a smart plug connected to the OBD? Other ideas besides fixing the cluster?
For (b) how can I get this info?

This is a hard thing to do,the computer does not keep idle time,this is something that has been talked about for a while,hour meter on cars,to get the actual running time of the motor,sorry there is no info you can get other than mileage.

Idle time is not available on the vehicle you have.
