WEIRD - 2012 Focus Overall Odometer Reset

Have you ever seen the overall odometer reset to 0? Turned the car on/off 5 times and was still at 0.

Just do that every two years and you'll always be driving a new car.

Hey sounderella,

Wow, it's kind of like you're driving a new car all the time! I'd suggest swinging by your dealership so they can inspect. Ford certified techs are in the best position to diagnose and repair your vehicle.

odometer resets to zero

Hi,

I have a 2012 SE Hatchback that just turned three years old. I have 55K on it (long commute). I turned the key to ON the other day (didn't start the car) and I heard this very faint, very high-pitched whine, like an electrical device might make. I started the car and looked down and the odometer (not the trip odometers) had reset to all zeroes. I decided to just put it in gear (it's a 5-speed) and go and a few seconds later the odometer blipped again and went back to the original mileage.
But, I have no idea why that happened and I've no other electrical issues of any kind.

I recommend reaching out to your dealer to have this looked at.

Time to sell those cars, guys! Put a few thousand miles on to make it convincing, then sell it because you "realized you don't need the car."
