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.
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. OdometerGears.com has the three different sizes of gear for you to fix it.
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?
