HELP! Odometer and trip meter issues
Well I thought my EA probs were all over, until yesterday. A couple of days ago hubby asked me how many k's we'd done and I said 348. So we decided we'd better fill up soon.
WELL, yesterday I was at the petrol station (using my patented spark plug jammed in the filler - I always stand right next to it, just stops my hand from aching!) and all was fine. I went to centre the trip meter again when I noticed it said 348k's. I thought to myself, that's strange, isn't that the amount I told hubby we were at the other day? Thought I was losing my marbles and centred it to 000.
Drive away. 3 k's down the road I realise that the trip meter hasn't moved. Play with the bugger. Still does nothing. I figure, great, the thing's dead. I'll just go by the odometer. It's on 208211. Fill up at 208611. Get home (10 k's later) to find it is STILL reading 208211!!!
What the hell is this? The speedo has never been accurate but it's still working, all the other gauges are fine.
Any help appreciated!
