Thread: stuck odometer

  1. #1

    Default stuck odometer

    i have an 89' european spec 525i and my odometer has been stuck at 299,996 kilometers since i have owned it. i have heard that this is a common problem with these years and was wondering if anyone has had this problem and/or fixed it? i am leaning towards a new "coding" plug, but before i spend the $ i'd like any input. thanks
