Diagnosing and Repairing Your Imperial's Trip Meter

Question from Tim (1966):

Is there a way to reset the trip meter?


From Bill:

Below the dash, on the left of the steering wheel, there should be a small chromish dial. Turn that and your trip meter should turn till all numbers line up, and then just turn till you get all zero's. If the knob is not there, then you have another problem.

From Don:

On the lower dash, on one side of the steering column( on right side for '67/'68 Imperials-can't recall which side on my '66 Coupe) there is a chrome knob which when turned counterclockwise will reset your trip meter. If it hasn't been used for a while it could take a little extra effort.
