I am sure it is possible, but it is illegal in the USA and other parts of the world. Just do basic math, for example mileage on car before new engine (150,000) just write it down, then when you want the mileage on the new engine (let say 170,000), the new engine mileage is 20,000. Also Mercedes-Benz has a free high mileage award program which setting your odometer back will not help you get the award.
In fact, many newer GM cars have an "Engine Clock". I had a 2003 Silverado which showed the mileage, and the "Engine hours" on the display. My 2007 Cadillac SRX also has this "Engine Hours" display. Very unique.
By the way, I owned a car dealership for about 3 or 4 years and resetting your odometer is extremely illegal. Not only that, but your car could eventually be issued a salvage title, or a "mileage unknown" title, which would totally distroy all of your resale value if you ever try to sell it. It is very hard to sell a car with a damaged title, due mostly to the fact that almost all banks will not loan money for a vehicle with a "tampered odometer", or damaged title. On a 1999 vehicle, resetting your odometer is the absolute worst thing you could possibly do. You will open up doors you will regret later.
Just my 2 cents.... By the way, how much did it cost to replace that engine?
A friend of mine bought a used ML, and it had low mileage respectively to its year model, taking it to the offical MB dealer, they were able to retrieve the orginal number which was nearly double the current one.
noticed my brake lights have stopped working. Ive checked fuse 15 and swapped the relay. Bulbs are ok so i went looking for the switch. Its gone.
there is a hole and no switch. No abs lights are on only the very occasional BAS/ESP light normally when i go through a puddle. It does go back out...
So I followed everybody's advice (thanks all!). Finally got the ignition switch on separately from the connector, second time around. First time I put both on together, but my key didnt turn. So, I did it how you guys said, separately. Took 3 different guys and 2 days!! Key turned with new lock...
Hello does anyone know what size screw would hold this down? I just noticed mine are gone
added a picture to make sure you would know what i am referring to, i am hoping i can get a replacement at the local hardware store, if not suggestions are welcome!
