Chances are the little gears inside are stripped so you will have to replace it,however it is not real expensive and the time to replace it is about 1/2 hour please rate this

Have a 1991 GMC 1500 and the speedo works but the odometer does not - where do i start ? new part or relay or ?

If the speedo works and the odometer does not, I would say its the odometer that has failed. The speed sensor in the transmission works for both components so that leaves the odometer.

As soon as i start the car the speedometer reads at 120 mph then jumps around....when i put in drive, it works fine.

I had a Lincoln which did almost the same thing. On my car it was the Alternator shorting inside its casing. You can get a free test at Autozone or Oreillys on the car.

Now mine did not return to normal when I put it into Drive. So on your car you may have an Electrically shifted transmission. I would think if the Alternator passes its tests, you have a short in the shift control module which is shorting the Alternator and its Regulator inside..

My Speedometer would read 60mph and the Odometer would count the miles when the car was sitting still. I replaced a Digital dash to no avail and then found the Alternator was the reason my Speedo and Odometer were acting up. Immediately after changing the Alternator all problems stopped for me.

Speedometer/odometer does not work and rear defost always on

From your description, the instrument cluster has a short. These cannot be repaired, only replaced. This has become very common on 2000 and later vehicles, regardless of make.

Odometer doesn't work, is it something i can fix?

More than likely your lead gear for your odometer is spinning on the shaft and not advancing the odometer or tripometer. You will need to remove the speedometer from the cluster to verify. once the speedometer is removed you will find a metal/gray colored gear next to the odometer digits. Take a small flat tip screw driver while holding the odometer digits in place with your finger, try and spin the gear. If the gear spins this is your problem. has the three different sizes of gear for you to fix it.

Odometer quit working

Suggest you visit this website...
Odometer is turned by a mechanical gear wheel, which is the likely culprit.

The turn signals, AC/heater, and the odometer stoped working.

I found that with mine, it is the key switch. If I start the car or just turn the key on and the a/c or signals do not work, turn the key off and back on. It may take more than once but that is what works for me. The odometer works on mine, but the tripometer does not, and has not for a long time. Mine only has 68K original on it. Does that help?
