Something is up with my trip meter. I changed the speedo cable out last week and I don’t remember it doing this before it was changed out but it may have.
Let’s say I clear my trip meter out and drive for 23.5 miles. The 23 part is showing half way up to the next numbers (34) and it stays that way until it goes to 24 and then the 24 will show half way. I hope that makes sense. I have tried clearing it several times but it keeps doing it. What do you-all think?
Did not find anything by searching.

Assuming the character-wheels are driven by gear teeth, then sounds like it skipped-a tooth.

In which case, I bet you could manually move the wheels "back" that half-increment, to re-index them.

I've done similar with the odometer (in whole increments), on both the 1500 and a ford truck*



*Done because I replaced the speedo, and wanted new ones to match same value on old ones.
