Mercedes W 163 speedometer reset issues

Hello, I have a 1998 ML 320 Mercedes that has a new (used actually) Instrument cluster. I need to reset the odometer in the replacement cluster, can you suggest a scanner that can work thru the OBDII port to delete the mileage now showing on the replacement cluster and reset it to actual, or something closer to the mileage the old cluster showed? Thanks, Best Regards, Dick Hardy rekfhardy@comcast.net Atlanta, Ga

I don't know any reasonable priced scanners that will allow you to program the mileage on your W163.

You may want to consider using a service that will program your cluster for you for about $90. You will have to remove the cluster and send it in for programing. See this W163 mileage programing service offered on eBay.

I have visited the site you sent, unfortunately he is not responding to inquiries until Aug 8 . I need the repairs to be completed in time for a new license tag deadline of Oct 24, can u suggest another source? Thanks so much, Dick Hardy

Sorry, I don't see anyone else offering that service on eBay.

You may want to google it or see if you find another used cluster that has mileage similar to the one you have. Go to car-parts.com and search for a cluster. You will see inventory of all junk yards in US. Call the one that has almost the same miles and have them ship the cluster to you.
