2002 L-Series 2.2L Sedan
Dizzy Odometer skipping 300,000 miles

I started the car with the trip milage viewed. Noticing my expiring oil change tag, decided to reset the trip, and view my total milage. It read 400,262!! When the sticker on the window shows next change on 130,000 miles. What happened?! How do I fix it?

There is a campaign for this. Check with your local Saturn to see if your car has had it done or is in the VIN range for it.

#02-C-07

Saturn has decided that the odometer in certain 2002 model year L-Series vehicles may not function after a power interruption because of a software error in the body control module (BCM). This can occur when either the battery is reconnected after service with the key on, or when the battery receives a high electrical load with the key off. It may also be brought about by a loose power or ground cable. In addition, certain 2000, 2001, and 2002 L-Series vehicles serviced with a replacement BCM may exhibit the same condition.

I'll call Saturn in the tomorrow AM. I have had the BCM replaced due to a recall previously.
