Instrument cluster from wreckers

iluvmuse, Dec 4, 8:57pm
The odometer on the cluster I want to install has 50k less than the current odometer . It's a digital type. Can I get it adjusted somewhere or notify nzta of the difference?

Maybe these guys can help.

If it is truly a digital one, the Kms may be coming from the Vehicle Management System and changing the instrument won't change it.

What is the Vehicle?

Thanks for the link.
It's a ten year old Hiace. I meant digital display rather than analogue.

Is it petrol or diesel? If it is a petrol there is no legal requirement to notify anyone except the person you sell it to when and if you sell it.

as per above otherwise some can be changed via obd2 port others change by read write eeprom on cluster. or resolder of old chip from old cluster to new.

It shows up when you do a check on warrent issues .

Yes but it doesn't prevent getting a WOF and is not a legal issue unless you do it with intenet to decieve.

Years ago I had this same situation, I used a label maker to print a sticker with the additional mileage noted, put it on the corner of the windscreen.

Short version YES. You can add k'm to a digital ODO. I'd try your local sparky or Toyota branch
