Trip Meter

Recommended Posts

My trip meter has been acting up lately. It won't go past 100 miles. It just stops. Does it just need a shot of lub?

Havent really thought about checking that. I will have to check. If it wasn't working that would sugest that the gear in the tranny is broken or the cable istelf could be broken. Thanks for the question.

Well when I got mine the trip meter would jam on occasion. to fix it I pusted the reset lots and lots of times. It would jam the main odometer.

The trip odometer works the same way as the odometer. it runs on two small gears that are run off of the speedometer. So if you are getting to 100 miles but no firther indicates that the gear is probably worn out. I doubt that part is still avail. from subaru so you'll have to disassemble another speedo to get these parts. This should remedy your problem. Good luck!
