1988 Lebaron Traveler not reading mileage

I put a new engine in my 1988 Lebaron two years ago. Car finally runs well, but ever since then my Traveler does not do any fuel mileage calculations. Iím wondering if I didnít hook something back up, or if the unit is bad and it was just a coincidence that it happened after the engine swap. Itís the simple Traveler with just a couple buttons and it powers up and acts normal other than no mpg calculation.

Re: 1988 Lebaron Traveler not reading mileage

Is your speedometer working?

Besides the Trip Navigator does this vehicle have an Electronic Monitor and/or Electronic Cluster?

Re: 1988 Lebaron Traveler not reading mileage

Just caught electronic monitor. Is that the display that shows doors open? Mine is the one from a Daytona I swapped in with a boost gauge my Lebaron didnít have. I havenít paid attention if that is working.

Re: 1988 Lebaron Traveler not reading mileage

According to the wiring the Trip Navigator, Electronic Monitor and the Electronic Cluster all communicate with each other and the "Distance Signal" travels to all.

Unfortunately I do not know what should be on that line and I do not have any 88 FSM's to check for Diagnostics on the "Traveler System".

I can send you the wiring through PM.

I sent him all of the wiring, however...
Do you have all of the 88 manuals that would show diagnosing the system?

Re: 1988 Lebaron Traveler not reading mileage

Interesting. I was hoping there might have been something simple I left unplugged when I replaced the engine. I thought it was operating properly before then engine swap but I drive it so little I wonder if it had been out for a while. The diagnostic test looks promising.
