Trip odometer does not reset

Recommended Posts

In my 2005 Cayenne V6, the trip odometer does not reset. I have pressed it down but it just stopped working in the past week or so.

Anyone know how to fix this problem.


My 06' has just started to do the same thing. If I press hard enough and hold it down it will reset sometimes, but it is not right that is for sure.

Ok I figured out the problem. I took off Odometer Trip reset button very carefully, you raise the front a little and pull lightly out towards you. Its just a plastic part and picture shows you what the other end looks like. They are suppose to go into the plastic reset button and catch on. I pressed this while the button was off and it RESET to 0 perfectly.

So the plastic button's inside groves are probably getting worn out after many years of use, or the fixed part in the instrument clusters groves are not holding tightly.

I will get a new button cap from the dealer, can't be more than a few bucks, if it is still a problem then maybe the only solution is to glue it on so there is no free play.

I have the identical problem. Button can't reset the trip meter. I remove the button, and SW shaft observed. It is possible to reset the trip meter by pushing the shaft. For some reasons, The button motion don't transfer to the shaft one. So I introduced tiny shaft . See attached pictures.
