With the speedo working, the speed sensor is doing it job, the trip and odometer are part of the speedo head assembly, there can only be 2 things wrong, the printed circuit board on the back of the instrument cluster assembly, or the speedo head its self, have yet to replace a circuit board, replaced a bunch of speedos, here are the pinpoint test to determine the problem.Hope this helps.graphicgraphicgraphicgraphic
