SOURCE: odometer doesnt work
Your speedometer works, your odometer quit.
Chances are, your drive gear has given up. The popular story is that you
hit the trip meter reset while the car was in motion. While it is entirely
possible that that particular event was the event that caused the actual
failure, the root cause lies at the VDO factory. The tiny, little, 15 tooth
planetary gear that drives the odometer and trip meter from the speedo
sensor has turned into a soft jello like rubber over the years due to excessive
heat and a corrosive oil lubricant that has turned that essential gear
into mush. The separation of a couple teeth from that gear has been inevitable. Now, if you have an electrical(led) displayed odometer, this could be a blown fuse or the sending unit is damaged. Either way, you will have to remove the cluster from the dash to access this problem spot.
please rate and god bless..

Common problem on BMW's apparently...there are on-line repair services but they are NOT cheap...100-300 bucks. Tough to fix yourself...unles you are a highly skilled techie!

Speed sensor has failed.
It is basically a magnet sensor that reads the RPMs of the tranny.
It is screwed into the side of the transmission.
Do you have an aftermarket alarm installed, or remote start?
Sometimes those wires can be damaged if not installed properly.
It is $33.00 at autozone.

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.
