Hi there and welcome!
Usually use the vehicle assistance sections for help, not everyone bothers to read all the sections!
I can't specifically vouch for yours, but most cars for quite a while now keep the vehicle mileage stored in the main brain, as it avoids any easy mileage fraud, old style clocking, on high mileage cars. And of course nowadays MOT test mileage is available to any one on several Internet car check sites. I had what I thought was a faulty clockset on an older voyager and when I swapped them the miles were correct for my car.

Well, as it was 6 years ago I'm struggling to remember the trauma precisely, but I've a thought I may have chickened out and given up and got my friendly local garage man to do it!
