ODOMETER

1994 Saturn SL1

Interior problem
1994 Saturn SL1 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 84500 miles

Several months ago I hit a pothole in town and the odometer started indicating 4 miles +/- for every actual mile driven compared with my GPS. The spedometer is OK. What broke? The dealer wants $500 to replace the entire odometer speedometer module. That is crazy for a car with only 84500 miles on it. It was just a small pothole. What are my options? I am keeping track of the actual miles with my GPS and a log. How can I unhook the odometer wire so my odometer milage doesn't get way over actual milage? Thanks, Robert

You hit a pot hole and knocked your odometer out of calibration never heard of that one before.I have never had a person even complain about there odometer doing what your's is doing.I can tell this there's just a speed signal coming in not a sperate odometer signal coming in that you can just unhook. You would have to remove your cluster assembley and take all apart to get to the seperate odometer assembley. Your best option if your speedometer is right but your odometer is wrong I would take out your cluster and send it in and get it calibrated by a company that repairs them. Also have them replace your odometer drive gears while there in there very common for them to break on that model year car. Let me know if you have anymore question's.
