Hey guys, on my 1996 xh xr6 falcon ute, the odometer and the rest of the dash, the light has faded and I can't fully see it. The odometer is also reading 660132 kms when I've really only have done around 181400 kms. It's a digital, not a windy. Just need to know whats wrong with it. Cheers

If you can still see the numbers by shining a light directly onto the display when the ignition is on, then it's just the globe behind it that needs changing. To do this you'll need to remove the cluster.

Usually when an odo goes a jump like that, the whole assembly is toast....seen it a few times before....and they were under warranty too.
