the speedometer/odometer works on a cable that goes into the side of the transmission with one 10mm bolt holding it in. It sounds as if the cable has been broken,pulled loose, or siezed up. Its easy to check the end under the vehicle but its very complicated checking it inside the dashboard. If you are a do it yourself type of person, id look underneath and see if the connection under the vehicle is still connected. Look on left rear of the transmission for a cable that goes into it and is held with a "Y" bracket and a small bolt.The dashboard part is the type of job where u got to make sure you remember where each screw goes to get back together.

The problem is going to be a worn or broken odometer gear. You can purchase the gear at odometergears.com for $29.00 with the shipping. Follow their how to repair on the Mustang to help in the repair. I believe you will have just the worm gear to replace.

Your problem is the speed sensor. The VSS (vehicle speed sensor)
is located on the right side of the transaxle, near where the right side axle shaft
connects to. To access this part is pretty tricky, if you are inexperienced. There
is an aluminum foil covered shield around the wiring connector. You will need to
remove the shield to gain access. You may even have a damaged wiring
connector, that is causing the problem due to the close proximity of this part to
the catalytic converter. If you want to purchase this part from the Ford dealer,
ask the parts counter person for the "basic" part number 9E731. Hope this helps.

This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.
