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

SOURCE: Odometer Repair on a 1996 Nissan Pick-up XE

The teeth on the ODO gear are most likely stripped. Seen this a hundred times. Dealer- only repair unless you buy a used speedo head.

Sounds like either your speedometer cable, your nylon gear on the side of the tranny where the cable ties in, or the odometer itself is shot. One of those three will set you straight. If you are able, remove the cluster, take the cable off the back, and pull it out of the sheath. You will see if its broken or not from there. If not, slide it back into the sheath, then you have to find out where the sheath meets the tranny, and pull it off of there. Then, you can get someone else to watch the speedo as you turn the cable from the bottom. If it works, great, if not, then its your cluster/odometer/speedo. If it does work, the small gear in the transmission is shot.

Take the VSS unit out as described. Need two people. Have the unit out of transmission but hook up the electrical wire. Turn the ignition ON but do not start the engine. Turn the gear while someone watches the speedometer. If you get a response then just replace the gear and try it. The gear may not look worn or broken but just a little wear and it looses contact with the transmission worm gear. This may cost you about $6 instead of over $60.

Odometer numbers fade or disappear.

It's time to either have the speedometer rebuilt or replaced. Check your local salvage yards and see if they have one in stock. Be sure to note mileage on and keep the paper work with the car in case you decide you sell or trade in.

Speedometer and odometer stoped working

Dear Sir/Madam, The problem is electrical. The speedometer/odometer box needs to be removed from behind the steering wheel (or after removing the steering wheel)...The bulbfuses behind the panel need to be changed and new electrical connections made for the speedometer/odometer to work.
Thanks, Netpreneur

2000 quest speedometer not working

Most common is the speedometer, for you speedometer issue. As for your radio display. If the radio works but has no display, then it's a radio problem not a fuse.

Thanks Jay!

Speedometer and odometer stoped working

this is a tough repair since the VSS, vehcile speed sensor is usually corroded to the transmission. It is on the top rear of trans, has one 10mm bolt and a 2 wire connector. The plastic gear on the end of the VSS wears out. Or the signal stops.

The cruise control quits too.

2002 Nissan Quest speedometer not working

it is likely the VSS, vehicle speed sensor on the top rear of the trans. one 10 mm bolt, but often the VSS won't come out due to corrosion. spray with penetrating oil.

The VSS sends a signal to the speedo cluster. Cluster converts signal and sends it to speedo and odometer and also to engine computer.

If your cruise control also does not work, it is VSS.

Try prying back and forth at base after soaking.
