Default RE: Stop The Odometer Must Read!!!!!

In reality, the reason for NOT asking questions like this one about the odometer is this:

Take a look at how many people have viewed this thread. At the time of this posting: 1030
Thats how many people stopped in to "look" at what this is about. I know that alot of the views are returns from the same people. But what caught your eye in the first place? I am being honest here, stopping the odometer. I wouldn't do it at all because that is just not my style. But just think of the people that are "watching" this thread just for that information. There are ALOT of views but only 2 pages of posts. That tells me something. The problem is two-fold. First there are people out there that WILL do this to the vehicle IF a procedure was posted. Second, some moron could easily post on here some silly-sas thing to do to make the odometer stop and in reality cause major damage to your vehicle, and some person without the knowledge would try it. Some people would say: "Well, thats what they get for trying it".....but alot people come here seeking knowledge and rely on what they see in the posts, and don't know any better.

Now, whether or not the orginal poster of this question was going to do this procedure (if it was posted) the fact remaqins that it would have been available for many people based on the amount of views for this thread. All I can really say, and this goes for ANY information you find on ANY forums is this: Do your research on any subject before you do anything. Most people on these forums are trying to help other people by passing on information, and some will be passing on thier own experience, this good. Thats what these forums are all about.....but the "end user" must beware that not all the information they get is fact and (or) good advice.

I don't post much anywhere I go really. I just thought that I had to say something on this subject. I am getting down from my soapbox now. Thanks for listening...(like you had chaoice anyway)...LOL

Mike

First of all, Im 22 years old, I agree that the guy is trying to cheat some one in the end because he did say he tried it. I have owned used cars in high school and college, Im still in college. I used to drive a 2000 ram 1500 5.9 magnum in it. Now I did buy a new 2005 hemi, yes the 5.7L HEMI, oh by the way mine is also a 4x4 and I Have all of my teeth. My truck blew up after 5450 miles on it. So new isnt always better. My parents havent paid for a single car, except the 68 buick riviera I had and that was given to the family for free. It is possible to trick the computers on vehicles, but why would you really want to???

There is actually a way to stop the odometer. My father works for Daimler Chrysler and last time he was in Auburn Hills, MI he was speaking with an engineer who explained to him the process which involves many different combinations of turning the key to certain positions and engaging other switches in the vehicle. Of course he would not tell me, nor do I care to cheat the system. Like some one said before Car Fax was created for guys like that. There are also about 5 different locations on a vehicle where the odometer is stored(different cpu's). But like the odometer stop there are also many different functions on a vehicle that are designed purely for diagnostic use only.

Alright whats the point of sitting here bi*ching about a post that is about 2 weeks old or so. BIG RIG, I just like you threw the tootless part in there to spice it up just for ****s and giggles. But anyway hemi said he has been told there is a way of doing it that is all i wanted to know. the reason i asked the question in the first place is because i have a buddy that was working on someone elses 06 dodge and he said he was doing it all day long. i admit i tried it to see if it would work(but im sure everyone of you would have done the same thing in trying it to see if it worked or not) but i could not get it to do it so that is why i asked you all."madman"

Ok, I think we have pretty much beat this subject to death. Let's end it now and start discussing relevent topics and serious issues.

wow omars way to bring up a topic that's over a year old within your first or second post flaming other members . It is very shady to set the odometer back and if I was around when this was a new topic I would have jumped on the guy too. The only reason to set an odometer back is to cheat someone.

Hi Guys;

I have been reading this forum for some time now never posting. I am about to buy a Ram in March. I wish to make the following comment. I think everyone's response to this persons question is completly out of the normal for this group. The insults your fligging are just not right.

Maybe I am the only one that thinks the following, but I would like to the answer to his question. Reason you ask, because I want to know all the various ways someone might screw me when I buy my used Ram. Based off answers already given (though somewhat vague) I am already going to demand a printout of the computer reports or logs from the dealer.

Just for the record, I do not endorse anyone tampering with anything that would cheat, lie, or extend their warrenties by any means fraud. However, I do believe the best way to combat fraud is to understand the possible tactics used. I cannot say if the orignal posters question was to be used by malice, or like me, it was a question he was just curious about. I do think many of you have over reacted to that first poster. Where did the Welcome To The Board, Glad you own a Dodge, warm invite go??

Hope to have my Dodge at the end of March!!

EDIT: I did not see that this post was a year old, sorry.

The warm invite (especially to posters like omars121) go out the window when their first posts involve illegally modifying vehicles in such a way to defraud. But, since your a first time poster, and not yelling at us, like omars121 did, because we won't tell you how to rip people off, welcome to the forum, andI hope you can find the Dodge you want.
Like motorider228 said, "The only reason to set an odometer back is to cheat someone." There is no other reason someone would want to do this.

I can't tell you how someone would be able to tell if the mileage "was stopped" on their vehicle, short of getting a CarFax (if your buying it from a dealer, they should give you one for free), and maybe asking to see the service record.
But, yea, "stopping" the mileage is a very, very sleeze-bag thing to do. If you were so worried about the mileage you would rack up, you should have addressed that before you signed the lease/contract, or you should have bought the vehicle outright.

Maybe the IOD fuse would stop the odometer.
it will cut power to the cluster, interior lights, radio, and underhood lamp.
I would want to know this if I was 16 years old and didn't have permission to drive the truck at night...

Buddy of mine figured out how to stop his in his truck. He hit a tree doing about 20. That was all it took. That odometer definitely won't run again!

What about if you tow the vehical behind a RV? I wouldnt but i know some people do. Does that run the odometer? If it does then that would be a reason to turn it off. Also about the toothless deal, the gas engine owners have teeth, but the Cummins owners have GRILLS! lol

But like the odometer stop there are also many different functions on a vehicle that are designed purely for diagnostic use only.

It doesn’t matter if it is recorded in 100 different places. If Dodge does not supply the correct current miles to the user they are bound by what is displayed in the dash. They have to let the owner know the warranty status. The warranty states 3y/36k miles. We do not have a way of checking the miles recorded in the computer.


I do not know where the cluster gets the OD reading from but if Dodge is not reading it from a device designed to hold the correct mileage they need new engineers.


My guess is the digital readout on the cluster is nothing more then a monitor that is displaying the values stored elsewhere in the truck. But the only for sure way to know would be, change the cluster from another truck and see what the OD reads.


But if that is the case why not just pull your cluster at 30k miles and buy a new one and start your mileage over. If I was a betting man I would put my money on the cluster being only a display. Not like the older mechanical OD's.

Yea no one drove me off the site. Im sorry if im not a broke a$$ like most of you that have to buy used cars that have been messed with. i buy brand new. mabye one of you will be lucky enough to buy my truck that only has a few miles on the computer. and it is not made up. and for the one whose dad disconnected the ipc is an idiot, you disconnect the wires from the rear diff. i am sorry i was under the impression that this dodge forum was here so people could ask decent questions. but i guess all you jobless toothless 2wd 4.7l ram drivers that cant afford the 5.7's think otherwise. Thanks for the info guys. "madman" ps. It was just a question thank for all being a$$es to a question. and no im not driving gm down the drian im fixing hummers to get them out
I wasn't going to post here this thread. To each his own...

UntilI read this post..

FYI a lot of people on this site have way nicer trucks than yours. I am one of them, and guess what I am only 20 years old. So get off your soap box and shut the **** up. This is not a pissing contest, but I guess the guys over at GM still need to do a little maturing..
