odometer \"error\" display

I am buying a used 93 F250 and after the PO did some work where the instrument cluster was removed the odometer displays "error" instead of the mileage. I have heard that there is a trick to reset it back to the proper display but have not been able to find the exact steps so does anyone know how to reset the odometer display so it is correct. It's not a huge deal to me but it would be nice for checking mileage etc... The speedo and all the other gauges still work fine so it seems like it is just a factory trip to alert anyone that the mileage may not be accurate because the truck may have been tampered with ???

I don't know how to reset it but it sounds like it was a lease and they messed with the mileage.

Get the facts:

If it is saying ERROR the you will need to check what the constant is and see if you can reset it to a valid constant If you cannot get to the programming function then find a replacement. There is no magic reset for an error code. You can program it and misprogramming it can cause a error code but it could have a hard fault in it causing this. Look at my site. It has the programming procedures for the PSOM.

If you need to get a new PSOM let me know and I can get you a price on a used one.

curtcon: Have you had trouble with a lease vehicle before or laying blame on thoughts.......not trying to be rude but I tend to try and think positive unless I can prove the negative.

Re: Get the facts:

No I have not but a few friends have either pulled fuses or had switches put in to get rid of the mileage so they didn't have to pay for it.
