Is the odometer still picking up km's?

Give us as much detail as possible, and the likelyhood will increase that someone may have your answer...

The pick up of the odometer is situated on the gearbox .If you go under the vehicle from the passenger side there is big brown plug sticking clearly out from the gearbox. Check that it is connected correctly or fits in tight.
Take some electrical cleaner and spray it clean.
You might check all the fuses to ensure that you do not have a blown fuse somewhere.
Also check the wires from the pick up and see if if a wire is not broken some where.
If that is in order the fault might be on your PC board in console.
That is all I can say thus far to check

Thanks guys will have look at the plug on gearbox. Anton the km is also not working. I did check the plugs on the back of the instrument panel and seems to be in order.

No George still no luck. The next step is to take the pick-up to an auto electrician to measure and pinpoint where the problem is.

Hi Gents, I have the same problem on my 99 blister. Any solutions or fixes yet? Going by youtube, the speedo assembly looks like its more electrical than mechanical. I saw a nice fix of the same problem done on a mustang where the cause was a perished plastic gear inside the speedo. Any help will be greatly appreciated. - Pierre
