If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the problem is inside the speedometer. Probably a stripped gear.

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: 1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

SOURCE: F150 Speedometer issue

It could be the cable is dry, this causes it to stick (shows zero) then wind up untill it frees (jumps up) then do it again, disconnect the speedo end, pour oil down and leave it suppoted so the oil can work its way down, re connect and it will get better as the oil works its way along .

What would make the speedometer stop working and not the mileage meter on a 98 v70 volvo wagon


since they both work off the speedometer cable/electrical and the odometer still works this sounds like the speedometer head is bad and needs either repair or replacement.

I have a 99 ford escort that the odometer and trip has stopped working but the speedometer still functions Any ideas?


the odometer works on a drive from the spedo. if the odometer does not work but the spedo does then you will have to replace the spedo assy.

Broke speedometer and odometer reader


you may need a car electrician as these things need troubleshooting.the only thing you can do is by checking all fuses however if other gauges and indicator lights are working then the fuse for the inst. cluster is ok.the speedometer has a sensor installed on the transmission while the odometer gets signal from the ECU so these two problems need separate solution

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
