Broken odometer/tripometer

Hey guys,

I posted this in the new members area but decided to put here too (I hope thats aloud) anyways, Iv got a 98 5th gen and when I bought the car the odometer/tripometer was broken. Anyways, I was wondering if any one has had a similar problem and if they found any solutions. Everything else in the cluster works fine (speed/tach etc...) except the gauge lights seem a little dim (I replaced the stock lights with blue LEDs but this didn't affect the brightness). After alot of searching Im afraid there might be a short or a bad ground somewhere. The previous owner had some kind of security system installed and there is a mess of wires under the dash. I don't know anything about wiring or relays but Im not afraid to dig into it if I can get a push in the right direction. Any input is appreciated.

BTW is there a way to check what the ACTUAL mileage is? Because the odometer was obviously tampered with considering the stab wounds left in the "9".

Re: Broken odometer/tripometer

Ok so I was magically able to get the odometer/tripometer to work. I was tinkering around with it and one of the gears popped back into place! All thats left is to find out the actual mileage and set it properly.
