    Default How get new odometer back to original mileage before the new one was installed? :/

    Hey guys!

    Hope you're doing good.
    All over PW, I see people replacing their odometers and instrument clusters with new ones for "a fresh feel". They take the old one out and put a new one back in its place. Obviously, the new cluster will have 0 KMs displayed because it hasn't been used before. Now my question is that how do you get the new odometer to display the old, original mileage the car has clocked? Suppose if a car displayed 50,000 KMs before and the guy gets the cluster replaced. The new cluster has no mileage on it what so ever. What does one do in that case?
    If there is a place in Islamabad or Rawalpindi where it is done, where is it exactly and how do they do it? I've heard lots of people have it done but they don't share the location.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Odometer roll-back is very different from odometer reading correction. I don't suppose they could easily do that.

    Odometer rollback is illegal too so this is the exact opposite of it and is completely legal. Instead or reversing, you forward it (well, that's the theory I think).

    No idea.
    P.s: read forum rules. You are supposed to bump no more than once in 24 hours.

    Firstly majority of them r kabuli meters with over 100k mileage.
    Secondly the device which is used by the meter reversers is the one which can bring it to original mileage
    The way will be to note the current mileage and then get the meter fitted. Note the No of kms travelld on new meter till u get to the guy who does the job. Then add and get the mileage calibrated.
    No other way.
    Laws r Made to be Broken

    No, not a Mitsubishi. I'm asking this for my '95 Honda Civic EG. It has an old analog dial meter. It has the original factory fitted odometer which shows a topspeed of 180KM/h, black background, yellow illumination, white needles and a redline of 9K RPM. The current mileage on the odometer is 293,000KMs (still going strong Allhamdullilah). I wanted to know that how would the new odometer be calibrated to show the original mileage so people don't go all crazy saying that mileage is reversed and so on.

    This is post also shows that I'm not hiding that how much my car is driven. Right now I haven't even touched the odometer yet so no worries for me at the moment though.

    i suggest drop the idea, by all means no matter how do you it cluster change will give a Buyer edge to consider you cheat [ no disrespect intended ]

    analog mechanical digits can be advanced / reversed with precision by using needle pliers at the mechanical side of digits. - I can't say more on this

    I admit my complete disability about HONDA Vehicles

    Yes, I know about that but the odometer is giving problems like the heat gauge isn't working properly now. It stays at zero for a long time and goes up right when I turn it off. The fuel gauge is also quite misleading as it displays only 3 quarters of a tank when it is supposed to be full. If I buy an odometer, will I be able to advance it (using some needles or a narrow screwdriver) at home? :/
    Your input on this was helpful as I learned how easy is it to reverse an odometer and how much more careful people should be when buying a used vehicle.
    Do you know anyone on PW who could better guide me on this?

    Thank you.

    Have you tried checking the sensors before considering a meter change? Your car has high mileage so parts like the temp sensor and fuel gauge may show incorrect or slow response. Try cleaning temp gauge connection and ground wire connection for fuel level sensor. It might improve the response and reading.

    cluster gauges can be fixed to work as new at a reasonable price if you are in Karachi contact Hafiz Zufliqar 0300 2837591. He may be able to offer you removal & installation service as well. or, if you have somebody who can remove the cluster you can save on some money @SER_GTR @argtr65 in lahore you can call Obama car care centre Mr.Abbas 0321 4106898 @syncview

    Have had them replaced a few months ago so I thought that the odometer is the only left in the circle. I'm gonna keep the original odometer too so that if I sell it, the new owner knows what he's getting. One more thing, the odometer also kind of hangs on 40KM/h for a moment and then moves back up with a little jerk. An electrician said that the odometer needs replacement so I came here.

    What if I get the odometer calibrated from Honda Center? Will they be able to do it? They have lots of computers and other kinds of equipment there so they should be able to do it, right?

    Well, that's unfortunate as I live in Islamabad. What if I have the odometer calibrated from Honda Center?
