Hi all,
I have a 2003 Dodge Dakota Stampede with a 4.7L V-8. First off I really dig the truck, the suspension is just a little harsh but it handles better than any other pickup I've driven. I also have a 30 series one in one out Flowmaster which gives it a well tamed nice low rumble. My question is this, is there a mileage computation device in the truck's central computer? Meaning, if the odometer is not working is there something else still measuring the miles on the truck? Thanks
Kyle

I've done work on consoles for chrysler and youre wasting your time. There are 3 systems in place to keep your mileage accurate and prevent fraud.

1st. - System computer in conjunction with engine sensors keep track of your mileage even if your console is unplugged.

2nd. - There is a mechanical counter device hooked up to the transmission which records ticks for every 8 rotations of the driveshaft which is computed to show mileage within a certain margin of 20 miles.

3rd. - There exists another system buried within a completely seperate computer system. Which also records mileage and sends a code which keeps the trucks engine working. If disabled which I've been assured is impossible for a non-technician, the truck will not function. Our techs were never allowed to know what the 3rd system was to insure that it never leaks out. The 3rd system is impossible to locate/disable unless you install your own motor, strip the computer/harness and any other modern device and run it 1960's tech style.

All automotives use these systems to prevent fraud, despite what you've been told it is impossible to get away with it when it comes to turning a lease. If you sold it privately, and the person took the truck to the dealership and they checked it, you could go to jail for quite some time.
