  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Odometer and trip meter

Question

My odometer and trip meter don’t work.  Any ideas or places that could fix this?  1986 TA, 305 v8.

This could be a number of causes and the fixes vary as well. The mechanical odometer and trip odometer are driven by a stepper motor off the same VSS buffer signal from the ECM that also drives the speedometer.

1. The flexible printed circuit board on the back of the instrument cluster may be loose or have missing or broken clips.

2. The stepper motor that drives the odometer(s) may have broken or missing teeth.

3. The stepper motor may have failed completely.

Thanks Frosty.  I can get a refurbished instrument cluster from Hawk Motorsports, but it is quite pricey and I’m not sure it will fix the problem.  Thanks again for the info!
