You would need to buy a lower milage one and get it clocked up i don't see a dealer clocking it back illegally someone might if its possible with Civic Mileometer

You need to either get a new one from Honda or a used one with less than 2000 miles on it to get it clocked up

i am not too sure as i have not ever tryd to do this but there is a possibility it can be done using hondas diagnostic computer. best thing to do is ask your local honda dealer and see if they will sort it out for you.

Would think Honda must be able to set this for you, they will need to do that if you buy a new one. Is it a question of legality ?.

Not too sure if the Honda system is the same, but to give you an idea of what may be required, I'll tell you about the PSA (Peugeot/Citroen) odometer (mileage) storage system:

The vehicle mileage is stored in the Engine ECU, Speedometer Assembly, and the BSI (Built-in Systems Interface, the main body computer). When ever one of these components is replaced, the one with the highest mileage becomes the default for the other two components, i.e. if a set of clocks (speedo) from a 50,000 mile vehicle is fitted to a 20,000 mile vehicle, all three components will now read 50,000 miles. The only way to reset the mileage is to replace all three components at the same time, the idea being that it makes it hideously expensive to clock the mileage.

The normal way to do this (but it's to late for you) is the following:
- you go to a dealer with your car and the old dashboard still mounted
- the Honda diagnostic tool reads the odometer for your car and stores it
- you/dealer mount the new dashboard and the stored data is transferred to the new/secondhand dashboard in your car from the HDS

The dealer is right: at this moment they can do nothing anymore.

Hi there, I have a similar problem and I need to replace my speedo/rev counter unit. Can you confirm that I can buy a second hand one and fit it. Will it need coded to the car or will it be plug and go. I can lay my hands on one that is reading only 118 miles more than my car.
