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.

The speed sensor is located on the transmission towards the tail shaft. The housing that encloses the cable will attach on the side of the tranny. At this connection you will find the speed sensor right where it attaches to the tranny. There will be a couple of wires attached to the speed sensor.

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

I have the same problem with my 300zx currently. You need to replace the gauge cluster. The speedo itself in the cluster is really expensive and hard to replace. Look for one on eBay. Make sure to get the correct year though!
