    Long story short I blew the fuse for the turn signals and didn't notice until I was on the highway.

    I also noticed that my mileage on my odometer did not increase.

    One could think you could make a switch to disable your odometer this way... but isn't your miles also stored elsewhere on the truck through the computer system?

    It couldn't be that simple right?

    I always wondered what would happen in 15 years when your odometer went out and needed replacing.
