    Are you asking us how to modify the digital odometer in a car?

    There should be a little chip behind the instrument cluster that stores that information. Desolder it and solder one in from a lower mileage car. There are probably other ways to go about accomplishing that, but I'm not interested in learning about them.

    Digital or analogue?

    In all truth go to a scrap yard and just buy an instrument panel with less miles on it.... but if your country has any sort of annual car inspection they most likely record the mileage there so people will know if its been altered.

    You probably don't want to do this. At least in my country(Ireland). We have annual car check ups and they record the milage each time. If you sell a car with an altered milage meter it's also considered fraud if I'm not mistaken.

    I believe the specifics on how to accomplish what you want, OP, is around the 2:00 mark.

    Google "odometer reset" or "odometer correction" there will be someone near you that can do it.

    Depending on make model etc it can usually be done with a laptop and OBD port. You can buy a machine on alibaba for about $1000 that covers every car ever made. Some cars carry several chips so even though you reset the miles they carry a memory of the acrual miles in the ECU.

    No one gets away with clocking cars in the UK or Ireland but its not actually illegal to change the odo on your own property. The illegality arises if you try to sell on said property without informing the buyer of whats gone on.

    I regularly come across Japanese/Irish cars that read in KMs that need resetting to miles.

    On some digital displays on certain cars you can reset it via the battery. I disconnected a battery on an Aprilia RSV about 3 months ago to charge it but I didn't put it into 'safe mode'... it reset the mileage to 0.

    That's interesting. I had always assumed there was a CMOS battery that would maintain a small amount of power should someone decide to disconnect their car battery for an extended period of time in modern cars and motorcycles. I found this thread on the Arpilla RSV site and where someone states that the same thing happened to them.

    Yeah I found out after about that problem, I also thought a battery would keep it in memory, but I guess they didn't think of that back in Italy... worst part was it wasn't my bike.

    They were not best pleased.
