Are the wires connected to the back of the speedo.?
They may have been removed when the previous owner was winding back the speedo

Odometer is turned by a mechanical gear wheel, which is the likely culprit.

SOURCE: odometer and trip odometer stopped working. Speedometer works.

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.

SOURCE: stuck odometer - how do I fix

Since everything else is still working, your odometer just crapped out. This is very common on the Vics/ Marquis that utilize the mechanical style odometer. I've had two of them (1989 and 1991 Grand Marquis) where the odometer failed. You will need to remove the odometer from the instrument cluster and either replace it with a new unit (good luck with that) or send it out to be repaired. There's a guy that does this specific type of repair, search the Internets and you'll find him.

Side note: Since it was only the main and not trip odometer that failed on my two Panthers, I learned my lesson the second time around and just kept track of my mileage using my trip odometer and a pen and paper in the glove box. A lot easier than tearing the dash apart at the time. If it happened now on my current car ('94 Vic LX), I would fix it. It's not a really hard repair if you know what you're doing or can find someone who does to give you a hand.

Why is my odometer is not working??


the odometer not working must be just the odometer. no worries there is nothing wrong with the actual car, but going to the shop and getting it fixed would be the safest, best option.

My 97 mitsuibishi galant's speedometer works but not but odometer. it seems as if it is stuck but it wont move at all. please help


Probably need to replace the dash cluster that contains the odometer mechanism. The speed, or mph is controlled by a cable from transmission to the dash cluster. The odometer or miles put on the car runs off the cable through a series of small gears behind the cluster. There maybe a broken plastic gear or something has falling off the car behind the cluster (like a screw or nut) and has caused a blockage on the small gears.

Chevy cavalier 2005 87000 miles remote flakey, odometer won't display milage but will display trip data?


Hello William,

The key fobs are wearing out and need to be replaced. Sometimes taking them apart and cleaning the switch contacts and battery contacts will extend their lives but they are not built to last.

I believe your vehicles ECU sends the mileage data to the instrument panel cluster...in which the LCD odometer display has failed.

Odometer doesn't work, is it something i can fix?


More than likely your lead gear for your odometer is spinning on the shaft and not advancing the odometer or tripometer. You will need to remove the speedometer from the cluster to verify. once the speedometer is removed you will find a metal/gray colored gear next to the odometer digits. Take a small flat tip screw driver while holding the odometer digits in place with your finger, try and spin the gear. If the gear spins this is your problem. OdometerGears.com has the three different sizes of gear for you to fix it.
