My suburban was stolen last year (luckily recovered quickly) however the bandits took all of my dash components. -They unplugged everything opposed to cutting wires (I feel fortunate for this)- Instead of going through a body shop to replace the parts for my car, I got on ebay and found like-new/unused parts. At that time I bought an Escalade cluster to replace the original. However I did not realize that the cluster would read 0 Miles when I got it, and would like to update to the correct mileage as I am contemplating selling. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

It has to be programmed with a scan tool. The easiest option is to call a few dealers to get some quotes. Its a pretty quick process. Just a function of what minimum they will demand.

This can be a tricky area. Setting mileage on a speedo could be problematic. Some shops will require proof of mileage since mileage tampering is considered fraud. Just be aware of that when asking around.

CG brings up an excellent point. If you have no way to validate the situation and the previous miles, you might meet some resistance. Any police reports to confirm the theft would be a good start, along with photos, etc. Then some kind of a recent service or maintenance to verify the miles prior to the theft.

I would suggest starting the discussion with fully explaining the situation and asking them for what documents they will need.
