Your first post. Ahh, that first impression.
Let's see . . . . . . you're looking for a "fuse", as in "a" fuse, and your goal is to disable the odometer, ahhh, well, the fuse route is going to be problematic. You see, on "my" car, the odometer is fed by something called a CAN Bus data line which gets a signal from the traction systems control module (N47). The most direct method to disable the speedo is to simply take the biggest bolt cutters you can find, and cut that CAN Bus contraption. Whenever you're ready for service or it's time to trade it in, I'm sure you can just tape it back together. I hear CAN Bus uses fiber, so there won't be any bothersome wires to splice together.
Of course, there is another option . . . . . . . just steal a car. Really. Go to the closest international airport and steal a car from long term parking. To hell with this odometer nonsense. Think of the benefits: No insurance payments. No car note. No down payment. No maintenance. And when you're tired of it, or it breaks, or need gas, just go steal another one.
