My 1990 bmw 525i trip odometer light stays on, and the speedometer stops.

The electronic speed and trip odometer lights stays permanently on even when the engine is turned off and the trip odometer stops moving, but the speedometer moves.

It's not the fuse. You need to jump start the diagnostic cable. First you need a battery of 9v and short the + and - terminal to the diagnostic cable. Then you will see smoke. After that it should work fine.

OdometerGears.com has the replacement gears for you to repair your odometer. You need a E20= 20 tooth gear and a 16 tooth medium pod. The price is $54.00 for both including shipping.

Lucky you... we all dream of that day!

Why fix a gift of that ... you've got angels!

Suggestion:
1. Change oil every 3 months
2. If you really want to fix it... check the line, load with graphite as per manual.

Best

1994 Cadillac Eldorado speedometer stays on zero


Unless you have a totally stripped-down Eldorado, your speedometer is most likely ELECTRONIC (probably even has a digital readout).
Check your Trip Computer. Has it stopped reading fuel economy, distance to empty, etc.?
Is your odometer also not adding miles as you drive?
If affirmative to all of the above, replace your SPEED SENSOR, and you'll be all set :)

My speedometer and odometer stopped working


Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.
