theres a place by me that you can take a cluster to "new one and the original" and they will reprogram it to the correct millage. There in Syracuse NY, don't know where you are at but I would think it shouldn't be that hard to find a place near you that does that type of stuff.something in the cluster, i got a cluster from the junkyard and the odo and trip were still saved in the cluster from the blaze. now my truck says it has 57000 extra miles
I still havent got it fixed yet. Im going to try the fuse first then im going to replace the batt. why did you replace the bulbs in your cluster?I had the same problem as the original poster .All I did was change all of the light bulbs in the cluster and get a new battery and so far it has fixed the problem.

Resetting the trip meter is a SYMPTOM, not the problem. The problem is a loose battery cable, low battery, or other problem. When the trip meter is reset, its because the PCM (main computer) is resetting. And yes, that also resets all of the settings which are checked for the vehicle to pass an emissions inspection. So yes, here is Utah that would be a problem.As long as its not resetting the odometer I myself wouldnt worry. ... I'm not too concerned to reset the trip odometer though.
But is that really something that can fail inspection? In Indiana we don't require inspections so I wouldn't know.
Hey..new here but I just got done fixing the exact same problem. First I put a new starter on and then the odometer kept resetting. I knew something was wrong because it never done that before. I guess the new starter was pulling more power from the battery..long story short, I had the battery checked and sure enough..bad battery. It was 6 years old..Optima red top. Went back with a group 78 Optima red top and the problem is gone. I hope this helps and good luck.Ive got a 98 blazer 4wd, 4dr, 107K. every time the truck is shut off for more than an hour the trip odometer resets to zero miles. I need to get the truck inspected and last time the computer wasn't ready, could this be why? what could be wrong with it?
