1989 944 Broken Odometer

I have a 1989 944 with 120,000 miles. The odometer has stopped working. Since it is a relatively low value car and I don't plan to sell it, is there any reason to get this fixed?  Does this impact  the value tremendously?

1986-91 944 Odometer Failure

My trip odometer and odometer stopped working.  I pressed the buttom to reset the trip odometer and it reset but then both odometers quit working.  Could this be as simple as a bad trip meter switch, 944 641 321 00, or is something more serious. 


1988 944 Turn signal cancel

The turn signal switch on my 1988 944 will not cancel automatically when turning the wheel back to center in either direction.  Is there a way to repair the switch or is replacement necessary?  Thank you for your help.

The Tachometer stopped working and dealer didn't leave me with a warm an fuzzy on how it can be fixed. They repaired most of my instrument panel but the airbag light and the tachometer. What would cause the tach to stop working?

1990 944 S2 Cruise control activation

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 S2; Year: 1990; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 84000;

The cruise control doesn't want to kick on at times, it seems confused as to activation on a set speed [won't lock on]. The acceleration mode always works, but at times it take some coaxing to get the control to 'wake up' set itself on a chosen speed other time it seem to remember a previous speed set. After playing with the switch some it will began to cooperate and at other times it preforms normally from the very start. Any procedure as to checking lines switches etc.

1987 924S Heat control has limited travel

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 924s; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: approx 69000;

I just bought this car. The heat control (the lower slide that controls temp) has limited travel - about 3" only in the center. It doesn't seem to influence the temp.Seems obvious that either the cable is bound or the the other end is locked up (whatever is there).Any suggestions?

The odometer is not working. Is there a relay? Where is it located? It seems to reset only with the key on (when it was working)If I have to change the whole guage, how does it come out of the dash?Are aftermarket speedometers used in these cars?
