When I bought my 1985 GT, it had 206,271.4 miles on the odometer. I have driven it at least 200 miles since then and the speedo works fine and the trip odometer works fine, but the odometer hasn't moved one bit.
I have not taken anything apart to try to identify the problem, and frankly I really don't care about the recorded miles on it. I am more worried about the mileage being recorded during the yearly New York State inspections. I had one inspection done when I first bought the car, after fixing the e-brake, but next year it will have to be inspected again and will have the same exact mileage.
Usually the speedometer on most cars has the odometer under it and if the speedo cable breaks the odometer function goes with it. Is there a separate cable being that on the Fiero the odometer is above the speedo? Is this hard to investigate? Again, I don't really care about the amount of miles on the odometer, just worried when I go to inspect it again it'll fail because no miles have been adding up over the year's time.
Thanks for all advice and info!
