Can anyone give information on replacing the odometer on an '86 Aspencade? Mine stopped at 50+ miles.

Aspencade, does the speedometer still work along with the trip meter?
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

Yes, the speedometer as well as all the cluster instruments work, with the exception of the Odometer. It actually ran backwards about 600 miles.

OK, here a link to this problem before. When you get near the bottom it talks about a step motor. Good luck.....

Thanks Mooseman! I'll visit the site and see if there's a nugget there. At last resort, I'll spring for a new one and try to prorate the mileage.
