Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening? I had the car booked into the exhaust shop for some exhaust work and after that i realized my trip has been reset to zero. I realized after awhile that the trip was resetting itself back to zero everytime i switched off the ignition. and when i start the car again, it will display the odometer.

What gives? Has anyone encountered something similar before?

I havent had time to look at it but i will after work today.

As much as i am hoping its as simple as a fuse blow, i dun quite understand how it would blow out of no reason.... hmmm...... :?

UPDATE: I have actually taking a look at the damn fuse box. But the fuses are too tight to be removed by hand. is it meant to be like this?

No need to take them out.
Use a meter.

Disconnect the battery if you don't know how to use a meter.

Update again.

So i managed to get some fuses and bought a pair of pliers and pulled them out 1 by 1. i am shocked that i had 3 blown fuses. No idea how 3 of them can be blown; the interior dome light(i thought it was the bulb), the radio(i removed it long time ago so i didnt know it wasnt working) and another one which seems to be the headlights? No.3 or 4 on the fusebox.

Anyway the tripmeter is not resetting itself anymore. Though i still don't understand how a blown fuse from a seemingly completely different function affects it.

But really, thank you Magn1t :P

Yikes, you've got 3 independent circuits shorting in the car? Might pay to check nothing is cutting into your loom...

It's pretty common to remove the radio and not insulate the wires so the fuse goes out.
