Hi

Is it possible to get the mileage from a broken 03 1.8tdci Focus saloon cluster.

We've just had ours replaced as the cluster died suddenly. We have no idea of the mileage as it's a digital odometer and it went so suddenly.

If it is possible can you program the mileage into the new one.

Last recorded mileage is 11 months ago!

Thanks

im not sure, but i beleive your ECU holds the milage so when you connect a new cluster it will update as appropriate. hope that helps.

Thanks for the response but the guy who replaced it said it's stored on the cluster, didn't think it was possible to get at it. I was wondering if anyone new different.

digital mileage correction can be done but at around 200 quid is it worth it they plug the old one into a machine read the mileage then they plug the machine to the ecu and update the new cluster
