Arrow My odometer shows all 8's

I got in my jeep about a week ago and my odo. reads 888888. I put my acc. fuse back in and it still reads 8's. My trip still keeps miles, and it still lets me know I have no fuse when I have it out. But won't show my mileage. Any ideas as to what it could be?

Try making sure the connection behind the dash is fully pushed in.

You may have 888,888 miles then..... sorry, I know, I was no help. Hope someone else can help. Have you tried disconnecting your battery for about 5 minutes then reconnect?

Yeah, try the batt disconnect trick. It's possible that the connector to the gauges is loose too.

If those don't fix it, I'm thinking that maybe someone may have altered the mileage...Where did you buy the jeep?
