Howdy,

 

New Member and First Post so thanks for having me guys !!

 

Have a question in relation to XF Speedo/Odometer.

 

Speedo and Odometer were not working...bought the cogs from Ebay and changed both cogs and Spedo works fine now.

Odometer and trip meter still not working. When I open everything up and spin the cogs manually Odomoter rolls over perfect but when I put it all together the odo and trip don't work.

Does the little silver motor control the speedo and the odometer or just the speedo...

The motor for the odometer is mounted in the circuit board.

 

When removing the circuit board be very careful not to pull the internals of the motor out as it's only held in by it's connection wires soldered to the board.

 

Re-solder the three connections on the circuit board for the motor.

 

Very common for those solder joints to go dry and the odometer stops.

 

That should fix it.


Hey Boss... I've cut it three times and it's still too short..!
