It's right below the "get out of jail free" card...

In a post like that, you should say why, because otherwise it sounds like you're trying to scam someone.

In which case, screw you.

I believe if you stick a screwdriver through your ECU that should solve your odometer problem. Be sure to follow with a one gallon of water chaser.

I heard that somewhere...

It depends on the climate. If you live somewhere where it doesn't freeze often, water will be fine.

It's a 2005 with 130 miles on it.

I have an RV and want to tow it on occasion, so I don't want the mileage to add up.

So, not trying to screw anyone.

Really, does anyone know or not. No need for the silly responses.

It is illegal to disconnect your odometer. Regardless of if you are towing you car or not (engine off), you are still putting miles on the car and contributing to the need for replacement and maintenance of parts.

Just think if you were the one buying this car used. Would you want to know that the previous owner put several thousand more miles on the car than the odometer shows?

If you don't want to add miles to the odometer whyle towing there are two ways to do it legally... get all four wheels on the trailer, or tow it with the rear wheels off the ground. (the later may prove difficult becuase I think the rear of the car must face rearward.)

I guess if the speed/odometer readings are done fully electronically, then the meter won't accumulate if you don't have the ignition on. Does anyone know this for a fact on any car so far? For sajecki, it's not good to tow the G with the rear wheels rolling for a long distance.

If he's determined to tow it behind his RV I see the best option as getting a dedicated trailer for his G to get it off the ground (no wear on his mechanical components).

I don't know what the RV looks like, but you want to make sure that the brake lights are clearly visible when towing and not obscured by the car being towed. So get a trailer with remote brake lights hooked up the to RV.

Removal for Combination Meter AKS000EV

1. Remove column cover. Refer to PS-10, "STEERING COLUMN".
2. Remove combination switch. Refer to IP-10, "INSTRUMENT PANEL ASSEMBLY".
3. Remove instrument lower cover. Refer to IP-10, "INSTRUMENT PANEL ASSEMBLY".
4. Remove the screw (4) and remove cluster lid A and combination meter assembly. Refer to IP-10, "INSTRUMENT PANEL ASSEMBLY".
5. Disconnect connectors and remove combination meter.
6. Disassembly cluster lid A and combination meter.

Good luck with that every time you tow, but can it be disabled without disassembly of the combination meter (dash unit)?

- SPEEDOMETER: VDC/TCS/ABS control unit provides a vehicle speed signal to the combination meter for the speedometer with CAN communication line.

- UNIFIED CONTROL METER: Speedometer, odo/trip meter, tachometer, fuel gauge and water temperature gauge are controlled by the unified meter control unit, which is built into the combination meter (dash display unit). Digital meter is adopted for odo/trip meter. The record of the odo meter is kept even if the battery cable is is connected. The record of the trip meter is erased when the battery cable is disconnected. The vehicle speed signal and the memory signals from the meter memory circuit are processed by the combination meter and the mileage is displayed.

- POWER SUPPLY AND GROUND CIRCUIT: Power is supplied at all times through 10A fuse [No. 19, located in the fuse block (J/B)] to combination meter terminal 43. With the ignition switch in the ON or START position, power is supplied through 10A fuse [No. 14, located in the fuse block (J/B)] to combination meter terminals 41 and 42. With the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position, power is supplied through 10A fuse [No. 6, located in the fuse block (J/B)] to combination meter terminal 40. Ground is supplied to combination meter terminals 45 and 47 through body grounds M30 and M66.

So, pulling the 10A fuse [No. 19, located in the fuse block (J/B)] to combination meter terminal 43 will cut power to the odo when the ignition is off which, in turn, may allow the wheels to turn without recording miles? Report back if you get that far.

towing behind an rv
the mileage shouldnt change when the car is off.

why dont you just say that you are going to outdrive your lease.
or post a pic of how you attach your G to an RV? Did you have to cut the front fascia? Hope its a 6MT cause the 5AT wont like being flat towed.

Why don't you just buy a used Civic to tow.

If you are really towing, there are several ways to get all the wheels off the ground (dollies, trailers etc.).

Most RVers would go to an RV store/shop to figure this out. You're not the first person that ever had this issue.

Of course if your just trying to get around lease miles it is really difficult to drive the G when it is on a trailer or dolly.
