What is a Mileage Stopper?
The Mileage Stopper (also known as Mileage Blocker or Odometer Stopper) is a device that stops the odometer counter by directly blocking the mileage data from reaching the odometer. It works as a digital buffer between your car and its instrument cluster via a CAN (Controller Area Network) module that is installed behind the dashboard.
Can you stop the mileage on a digital odometer?
It is possible to stop an electronic odometer without any soldering of wires or removing any specific fuses. Moreso, it's possible to stop the odometer without disabling any vital functions of the car, such as the turn signals, indicator lights, and everything in the dashboard, such as fuel gauge, speedometer, and the rest.
Can the Mileage Stopper be detected?
When deactivated, Mileage Stopper does not interfere with the car's digital bus and cannot be detected by any servicing diagnostic tools.
Can the usage of Mileage Stopper be traced?
After you uninstall the Mileage Stopper, there will be no sign that it was used on the vehicle. Even if the use of the device is suspected, it is impossible to prove, thus making it completely untraceable.
How can you tell if a car's mileage is clocked?
The best way to test a car for a clocked mileage is to look at its service report journal and compare it to the car's overall condition. Any suspicious inconsistencies could indicate that the car's mileage is probably clocked.
Does replacing the engine reset mileage?
As a general rule, the odometer doesn't get reset after the engine replacement. Even with a completely new engine under the hood, the odometer starts running exactly where it left off.
Does changing instrument cluster change mileage?
It’s no wonder that mileage is associated with the instrument cluster. But contemporary electronic odometers are nothing but a display. The actual mileage is stored in the ECU. Thus, changing the instrument cluster will not affect the mileage displayed. If you need to replace the instrument cluster due to a malfunction, you will also need to reprogram the cluster. Sometimes this procedure requires disassembly of the cluster and de-soldering of SMD components. However, with the Mileage Stopper solution, there is no need to worry about the mileage stored in the ECU. Our device is based on modern chip technology and programming. It deals not only with the mileage displayed but also doesn’t let the ECU record any new mileage info.
