the only way I know how to fix this is to replace the dash panel with a different one. Be sure to check local laws as this may not be legal.

I also had this problem with my 1994 Thunderbird - I replaced the Speedometer cluster twice and the Vehicle Speed Sensor. I finally found a wed site that sells Odometer Repair Kits and with instuction that included pictures I fix My Odometer/Trip. The web site that sells these repair kits is

You can either listen to the guy above that has no idea or you can simply replace the odometer gear. It will cost up to $30 to replace. They are made of plastic. If you stop using the trip odometer this will not happen again. Don't buy the overpriced repair kit for the job. It will run you about $50. $30 for the gears and $20 for the directions. If you are here to fix it yourself you should be able to figure it out yourself. If you can't you should use an ASE certified mechanic.

Good Luck!

The odometer on a 1993 Nissan Quest will stop working if the sending unit has failed. When a signal is not received from the sensor, the odometer is unable to properly update.

Does your odometer work? If the speed sensor goes faulty both speedometer and odometer stop working.
