Default Trip Od

My trip Odometer dosn't work it wont reset and dosn't move at all, is that a comon problem i can fix or am i just SOL? It dosn't matter to me, the only time i would want to use it is for gas milage calcs but i can just figure that out from regular milage. But if it did work it would be a little easier.

yup its a common problem in the 92-93 cars....the design is crappy....the clip that holds the coluner becomes worn and then wont click over to the next number...

you can try to fix it.....i tryed to fix mine, it didnt work so i got the part from a newer SE and all worked well again

Both my Trip and Main odometer have quit. Is it easy (relatively) to fix both?

Gotta love the digital trip/odo (til ya unplug the battery on the trippy)

1993 SLEi did his and it works and looks just like it should. Stick with his analness and he'll show you how to fix it up.
