- Mar 15, 2014It is also possible that your trip odometer is stuck. Check the numbers and see if they are changing as you drive. One of my Imperials would make the needle jump every time the trip odometer reached the point of turning from 8 to 9 on the last black digit.Worth looking at as well as lubricating the cable, which should be done any way.Good luck.Paul W.

They can go on quite a while like that before twisting up and tearing themselves apart, but I wouldn't count on it.
