The odometer on my 02 ford explorer started getting dim and now does not display anything. one ford mechanic quoted 500 dollars to repair it…any suggestions or solutions? thanks…Don

Bad luck. The electronics went bad. Check with a ford dealer but I would also check with the feds. The federal government does require that certain features of your car work. Odometer is one. The dealer can provide a correct paper trail if the odometer needs to be changed. The feds say how long this equipment should work. The issue is has the odometer violated the federal rule? Need more info.

thanks, i will do some research on this.
