Default Trip odo reset itself?

I noticed today that my trip odo had reset itself. I got gos a couple days ago, and had about 20 or so miles on it, then I looked and it had 9. I don't remember looking at it before during that particular trip so I don't know if it reset when it was off or while I was driving. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it an indicator of anything?

Happens every couple months or so to the Zilla.

Not the SLE though, but then again, that'* not really possible.


I have some phantoms in the dash. Time to pull it again (it'* been almost 5 years?)
Wow.

EXACTLY 5 years ago, back when I was troubleshooting my rear steering.

Anyway, I noticed if I 'thump' my oil pressure gauge, it jumps about 5psi. Boost twitches a bit then too.

I'd say it'* time to pull it and clean things up again. Board by board.

You might not even notice it resetting if your eyes weren't so fooking enourmous. Try those slit-wood goggles the eskimos wear.

It did it again yesterday. It reset while the car was off.

Mine did it again yesterday too. Bummer, I was tracking just how bad my mileage is now.

It'* on my list. I intend to go back in, but not until I track the circuit down in the FSM'*



(thanks for my 60,000th overall post, John)

Anything I can do to help.

If it makes you feel any better, I was trying to watch my MPG too, but since I only have to fill up twice a month, the suspension had built quite high, only to be destroyed.

My '92 does this from time to time, kinda annoying, but its a good thing that I really dont watch my fuel milage all that close.

the '92 doesn't have this issue at all
