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?

Thanks!

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.
