Trip Odometer reset

Recommended Posts

The trip odometer in my 1934 Packard will not reset to zero.  Instead, when I press in and turn the reset knob either forward or backward it just counts up or down mile-by-mile without picking-up the adjacent counter wheel.  Any suggestions?

Phooey.  I was afraid of that.  Makes it pretty useless, doesn't it?

Thanks anyway, O. D., for the response.

7/25/2016 NO solution, but for the record, my 27 343 trip odometer resets ok, but does not track mileage. It just sits on zero. The main odometer works correctly. Speedometer unit was recently returned from a "professional" overhaul.

Interesting that a Packard model seven years older than mine resets OK and mine doesn't.  Re your '27 not tracking...I have a '41 Continental with the same problem but found that the reset knob was not pulling out all the way and consequently the gears were not in mesh inside the odometer. You might check this out.
