How do I fix the odometer of my secondhand 2015 Toyota Vios?

First, talk to whoever sold you the car

I bought a secondhand 2015 Toyota Vios. I noticed that its odometer is not functioning. Its digital reading is fixed at 14,260km from the time I bought it. I tried to use Trip A and B but the mileage will read only up to 0.9 and then will return to zero. I suspect that the odometer may have been tampered with.

How do I fix it? Do you know of any reputable technician who can repair it? I inquired at Toyota but it will cost around P13,000 to replace the entire panel and 45 days to order the unit. Please help. God bless!

Be aware that it may be possible that this is not all that may be wrong with the car. I hope you got it at a price that accounts for the defective odometer, and whatever else may possibly be wrong with it.

Unfortunately, I can't be of more help.

Thanks for writing in.
