The dash pod

Hello Could you please be of held to me. I have a 03 Focus estate. A little time ago the engine light came on to tell me the car had a problem. I had my service chap look at it, and he took it to
his place that deals with the electrical side. When the car came back my chap said that it had had a blocked valve, but i found that the engine light did not come on at all so he took it hack to his man.
He then brought it back again,the engine light OK but this time the ABS light did not come on. So he took it back to his man again. He then came back and said that his man has had to put a whole new pod in as they were unable to repair it. By this time neither of us were very happy.
The car came back with a totally different pod in it but it had over 8500 more miles on the clock.I phones my man with this and he seemed to be a bit shocked.
The outcome so far is that my man has said he will not use this electrical man again and has got my pod back.He told me he has been in touch with Ford and they tell him the pod can not be repaired, so he is going to put a new one in. My question is about the repair is this true. If a new pod is put in the clocks will be 0000. Will that have any effect on my resale value. I have been into a ford dealership and asked the same question and they said as long as the garage supplies me with the paperwork for mileage at the time of change that there would not be a problem
I am a pensioner so funds are limited and I need to look after my car. I would grateful for your advice as soon as possible.
My chap seems to be very genuine but every body has to make a crust.
Many Thanks

Your 'chap' appears to be incompetent and makes money charging pensioners for faults he cannot fix.
How did your 'chap's' electrical mate fix the engine fault light - he probably removed the bulb.

I took my Focus to a Ford dealer to repair the trip odometer. A new pod was ordered while I continued to drive the car.
When the pod was replaced, the technician reset the regular odometer to the mileage from two weeks earlier that appeared on the original work order.
So apparently Ford has the ability to reset the odometer as it pleases.
A "true mileage unknown" (TMU) vehicle loses about one-half of its value.
