Hi, I am new to this forum. I just bought a 1994 Trike ( California Sidecar ) and the odometer doesn't work. The speedometer and trip meter both work as does the cruise control. Any ideas to remedy this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou in advance for any help. Wally 3

They are all driven by the same thing - a cable coming from the wheel. The fact that the trip odometer works and the main odometer doesn't means that there must be something broken/not working in the odometer mechanism itself. You can try opening up the gauges and seeing if there is something obviously wrong - a piece stuck in the mechanism, or a broken piece floating around inside.
