    I suspect if the odometer is the ONLY thing not working you'll need to have it replaced. Now if there are other electrical things not functioning too you may have a fuse burned out. Check our owners manual and pull some fuses.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

    Re: odometer not working help!!!

    You can have it repaired, There's a seller on ebay who does this with 100% feedback. This isnt as common as the speedometer stepper motors but it happens time-to-time. (This guy is MUCH cheaper then the dealership is.)

    The seller's link is here : http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...3AIT&viewitem=

    Contact the seller and explain your problem, I'm not sure if it will be the same price for the odometer issue, but $90 is for 1 stepper motor replacement, a full rebuild with all new stepper motors, new bulbs, insurance and return shipping is $170. (His work is 5yrs warranty on labor, lifetime on the stepper motors!)

    I am going to pull out my speedo cluster tomorrow and have the repair done, my odometer works, but my speedo has a mind of it's own, I've been wanting to for a couple weeks now but I've been lazy.

    Hope this link helps ya out!

    If the cluster is broken, try that eBay guy^ ... I personally know someone who had great results with him!

    15 mins done, that was so very easy it's a shame how much cadillac dealer charges for out of warranty service. Just called cadillac in Greenbelt, MD. The service advisor told me they would have to pull the dash out and order a replacement unit, over night it, and install it. I would not have my truck for 2 days. I just completed that job in less then 15 mins, the speed according to GPS is 2 miles faster. The total job from the dealer would be $750.00-$900.00 buck. I got two steppers for less then $11.00 threw eBay. Are you Kiddin me!!! Thank you for this video, I just saved over $700.00 bucks!!!

    Re: odometer not working help!!!

    I have a 2005 Cadallic Escalade and the speed Odometer does not work, the Fule Gauage works, and all the other dash instruments work, but I would like to get the Speed Odometer working again with all the traffice camera's going up it is kind of hard to judge your speed without a speed odometer. Does anyone know how I can get it fixed without taking it to a grage to get fixed. If not how much did it cost to get it it fixed. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Watch the youtube video. If you are able to solder, its an easy DIY job.

    You can also check your local Craigslist for guys that come to you to replace stepper motors.
