SOURCE: speedometer not working

If the speedo is the only thing that is not working then it has a defective stepper motor, that is the little motor that moves the needle, it can be repaired, most of the cost is removing the speedo and re-installing it, so if u can do that u will save allot of green, ask the dealer for the name and phone number of the company that fixes there speedo's, don't go through the dealer, they will 2X the repair bill, go directly to the repair station.

SOURCE: Speedometer/odometer/cruise control isn't working.

It's your speed sensor at the transfercase on the drivers side i believe. Check the wire and clip to the sensor for any break or loose contacts. 
Easy fix and is about a 30 min job to do with simple tools. Un-clip the wire conntection, remove the retainer bolt and slide and sensor out. To install just do everything in reverse and add transmisson oil if needed.

Most of the time, it's going to be the sensor. Keep in mind that there are two sensor's so make sure it's the one on the output shaft at the transfercase. The other one is closer to the front of the transmission on the same side with is the input Volosity speed sensor.
If it was your ABS sensor, you ABS light would come on in your dash.
Good luck and hope this helps

Cruise control button stopped working 1996 nissan maxima, I've replaced it twice but it's stil not working, What to do?

are you sure that the switch is bad and not the vacuum line that operates the cruise function. check under the hood for a loose hose or a vacuum leak.

2004 maxima speedometer not working

If the speedometer and odometer are not working, the problem could be the speed sensor in the transmission.
If just the speedometer is out, chances are the problem is the speedometer itself.

2006 maxima - dash &a/c controls quit after bump in road. sometimes they return. last time wife was driving - saw smoke & did not start working again. smoke came from behind display in center...

I too had an issue with the dash controls, cruise ctrl, no speedometer. It happened all of a sudden on way back from Chicago. I think you may have the same issue. I put some change on the console in front of the display, which pretty much screams "PLACE STUFF HERE". Guess what, DON"T DO THAT!!!!. I had a dime lose it's way into the back of the display and shorted the whole Freakin thing out. $650 to repair.
