Default 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Odometer Fraud Help

To make a long story short, I purchased a vehicle and later on found the odometer had been swapped. If you need more information please ask.

I'm trying to find out what vehicle these calibrations/part numbers belong to:

15182173
15195647

These numbers were pulled from the current cluster in my vehicle, based on my VIN and vehicle, I should have: 15224122 and 15135651.

How did you get your information? Whatever source is capable of looking up what you have so far should be able to access what you need.

He wasn't able to find out what vehicle it came out of.

What mileage is on the odometer? Are there indications the vehicle has higher mileage? Did you run a Carfax?

Mileage: 64,415

Ran carfax and autcheck report on the vehicle: Back in 4/2/2010 at an emission testing site there was 103,000 miles reported.

I started calling around for information on the vehicle'* maintenance, 7/11/2008 the vehicle was service with 63,125 miles on it.

On the back of the cluster you can see boneyard markings.

While having a VIN will enable you to look up part numbers, having part numbers will not lead back to a specific VIN. They will only tell you what MY'* had those part numbers. There is no way you are going to be able to determine the specific vehicle that cluster came out of.

Sue. Its the American way.

It'* the only recourse I have. I told the individual about the situation and their response was, "good luck".

i didnt think it was possible to do that anymore without a gm scan tool. i might call a random gm service place and see if you can ask what it takes to put a jy odometer in a vehicle maybe just say yours is broke. if they do have to program it you can find who did it as evidence for your lawsuit.

The thing is this cluster was never programmed for this vehicle.
