mileage readings

'92 Blazer. Do these things not show tenths on the odometer?

Example- Is 144*****2 144**** and 2/10's? There is no square with a number in it with a white background like some vehicles have to show tenths.

It should show them. What does the owner's manual have to say?

Hi, Joe and thanks for the reply this early in the morning. This is one of several vehicles I have and I don't think I have a manuel for it. I've been thinking it has something like 188,000 miles on it. Someone told me they thought it was only like 118,000. Guess maybe I could check the title and see what it says, unless someone else thought the same way I did.

I am trying to think how this odometer is set up and it escapes me at the moment.

I know the mileage window is in the corner. I can picture it on my neighbor's Chevy Blazer, which is holed up in storage now. (it's a 1991).Lol.

I know it has six digits and will show over 100k, unlike GM cars of old.

This weekend I found a Turbo Trans Am in the junkyard and my friend was with me. "Wow, 165,000 miles". I said, "No, probably only 65,000 believe it or not" .

It sure looked like 165k

Is the last digit on a white background?

Been a while since I've seen the vehicle, Boman. I don't think I recall a white square for 10ths of a mile.

I think he's got it in storage behind his shop. It's in poor shape now having been used on many construction projects and being hit about 10 times. Lol.

So I guess we can assume it does not show tenths?

Heheh, bet they do get a few hits when used on construction sites.

Been thinking about selling this one, but not sure what kind of mileage to tell people it has. Maybe the title will tell me something.

One more time for good measure, what is the actual reading from the unit now?

Nothing after the 3 and no decimal before it.

To me it reads-Onehundredninetyfourthousand,twohundredeightythree and no tenths.

Have you tried to call GM and ask? Lol . Maybe their tech line or 800 can shed some light on it.

Or someone with a 1992 Blazer can reply and simply look in their owner's manual .

If

all the numbers are the same colour on an analog display and there is no decimal if it's a digital display, then the trip odometer is the one that shows 1/10's.

One in every bunch! LOL! May have to try that.

So Otter, this thing got almost 200,000 miles on it? 190,000+?

Tx to both for the replies

Thumbs up

Yes, Otter is correct. My memory has been jogged. This is how the set up is.
