What would cause an odometer to start running backwards?
My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Many older vehicles used manual gear arrangements to run the odometer. This means that a mechanical system was required to make the odometer function. It is possible that the gears have been lodged or rearranged in such a way to have caused this. The only way to fix this issue would be to replace the instrument cluster because that is where all the little plastic gears are located.
