Ok...didn't note this before until I performed NICE-Off on Saturday:
Coasting with NICE-off for a few seconds in my '95 Civic DX HB w/ 5MT, the trip odometer didn't register any movement whatsoever, even though my forward progress was around a 1/4 mile coast
. Now that I've seen this, it's obvious that the odometer needs juice to register the signal pulse from the sending unit, though the readout is not digital. Anyone else seen this in their own Honda? I don't know if my 2005 Accord EX Sedan with 5AT will do the same. I'm assuming so since that car is much more reliant on electronics than my Civic, not to mention has a digital readout for the odometers.
Strange as it was to see when performing the NICE-off, I pondered what that will do to my MPGs. Is it being inflated or deflated?
Also, when over the life of the vehicle, the accumulated error in unregistered distance will add up significantly and not truely reflect the travelled distance
Did I thoroughly confuse everybody yet? LOL
