What is this rusty componect on the board of the odometer? Resistor?

Had some water damage in my odometer so pulled it apart, cleaned the board with isopropyl. But found two or three components that where rusty and looked gone. But had no luck finding them on digikey to order and replace.

Not sure what they are?? Any help would be appreciated.

Tommy Duris those are resistors. For example, the one on the far right is a 52.5k Ohms 10% resistor. Use the 5 Band Resistor Color Code Calculator from here to identify those. After that double check with or for replacements

Thanks heaps Oldturkey03 ??

I thought they where resistors cause of the stripes but was not sure due to the metal caps, never seen a resistor like that ?

Again thanks for your wise help much appreciated ?✌️


@Tommy Duris most definitely resistors. Glad he knew where to go for the values. I can never remember what the value of the different color rings are.


unbelievable..... can;t find anyone that sells those particular resistors. Contacted both Digikey and Mouser asking them with photo's, they just said sorry they don't have anything like that nor could they identify resistors from photo's


Tommy Duris try a regular axial resistor with wire lead and solder it on. See if that will hold
