Question about 1990 Saab 900 Hatchback
HOW TO FIX BOTH ODOMETERS AND HOW MUCH WILL IT COST
You don't say whether the speedometer has also stopped working. If it is still working, then it's an internal problem in the speedometer unit which will likely need to be replaced.
If the speedometer has also stopped, it's often the speedometer cable that has failed; have the cable checked (it could come out of its socket at either end, or be broken). This is a much less costly repair than replacing the speedometer unit.
Often the old cable can be pulled from the sleeve, leaving the sleeve in place, and a new one pushed into the old sleeve to replace the defective cable.
Let us know any additional information.

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.

Sadly no, there is no fuse or bulb to replace. You either have to send the instrument cluster out for repair or replace it with a new unit from the dealer. You could also obtain a serviceable one from a salvage yard. Most shops should be able to replace the instrument cluster or advise who can repair it.

I just wrote this for someone else too. If you're a handy person you can fix it yourself for about $12, it worked for me. All you need is a pack of resistors from RadioShack (On the computer chip there is a location that holds the 4-resistors that operate the odometer, they tend to fall off over the years, all you need to do is solder new ones on) and soldering gun. I did it myself and with this video's instruction and it only took me a little under an hour and $12.00. The most daunting part of it is getting the cluster out of the dash.

odometers have been counting the miles for centuries. Although they are a dying
breed, they are incredibly cool because they are so simple! A mechanical
odometer is nothing more than a gear train with an incredible gear ratio.
Some odometer has a 1690:1 gear reduction!
That means the input shaft of this odometer has to spin 1,690 times before the
odometer will register 1 mile.
Odometers like this are being replaced by
digital odometers that provide more features and cost less, but they aren't
nearly as cool.
