Odometer finally died - Source for new Speedo?

Ok, so my odometer display has gone from flashing to dead. Since it looks like ECR no longer offers their fix I guess it's time to bite the bullet and replace the speedo.

Anybody know of a good source for a new one? Would like to buy one with the correct mileage already programmed if that is possible?

TIA

Ian

Get the VDO, and I have have heard that you could have a speedo shop set the mileage.

Sorry, should have said, I know I its a VDO Vision, but what is the correct part # and where is a good place to get it from?

I had read that some people have been told it isn't possible to get the mileage added on and others have managed to have a shop do it but I can't find the post for the guy that got it done. I don't want to have to rig the sender up to the drill.....

Thanks

Ian

Palo alto speedo shop should be able to do it. It will be expensive though to get it to near 100k.

Thanks Phillip. eguages looks like the place I need.

Before I order, can anybody confirm that VDO part # 437-155 is the right one for my 97?

Could kick myself, I had it out and in my hand earlier today and forgot to check the VDO part #.....

speedo shop, or if you have access to any kind of signal generator, that will also do the trick.

Don't know what the applicable laws are over there in AZ, but per Federal Law and here in FL (where they decided not to mess with what the feds said, unlike CA, NY, etc.) after 10 years you are exempt and you don't need to worry about the odometer (I spent about 10 hours on the phone with various agencies in FL to confirm this). I just went through all of this when replacing the speedo in my 94 (with VDO Vision series as directed by another thread) and most speedo shops will not clock the mileage up, but they will stamp your registration regarding the odometer change. I did find one shop that directed me to an individual who would clock it up, but after finding out that it was legal to make the change due to the age of the vehicle, I decided it was worth just doing the swap and holding on to the original gauge/odometer in case I want to sell the vehicle somewhere down the road (not happening).

Just write down the record of the original mileage in your service record book and keep track of it from there.

Hope that helps,
S-P

Think I will just get the unit and replace it. If I get really bored then I might wind it forward....

Can anybody confirm that VDO part # 437-155 is the right one before I order? Save me having to pull the dash again.
