How does the odometer (the numbers that count the Ks) work? A day before I trade the ED in (for an AU) it decides to stop working!!!! I know its electronic, does it run from the trans? the speedo works fine. Cheers.

Two Capistors in the board, They always dry up .. or get dry joints, I forget how many I've done in peoples cars, But it always fixes the problem .

Because the speedo still works, But the KM's doesn't ..
