the odometer is driven by a tiny electric motor now what fails on this is tha rubber worm gear now the only way to fix this problem is by buying a whole new spedometer cluster which runs about $300 from Ford

What could be wrong if the odometer on a 1997 Ford Ranger 4L stopped incrementing but the speedometer still works?

The odometer has failed. Unfortunately, there isn't realy any troubleshooting involved. The speedometer and the odometer run off the same input. In a nutshell the above is correct, because to fix it you have to replace it. I own a 1997 Mazda B4000, except for cosmetics....same truck. Found the answer myself the instrument panel there are 3 clusters....the cluster with the tack, spedometer, odometer and trip odometer is where your issue lies....there is a plastic gear that wears out advised their is a great deal of labor involved in this project....I highly suggest a proffessional do this for you...also due to it being a plastic part, I would rather buy a new part from the dealer than take my chances at the local yard were the part has been exposed to the elements for however long. Their may be other issues involved, but his was my experience
