It sounds like your VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is faulty. The VSS controls your speedometer and odometer, and also effects your cruise control since there is no speed reading to set it by. It is supprisingly easy to fix. Typically, a 10mm wrench is all you need. The VSS is usually bolted somewhere on your transmission. But, depending on your car, VSS' can be expensive, so make sure that your fuses are all ok before investing in a new VSS. I got mine from

Have your mechanic check the speedometer cable connections. They no longer use a cable. It is electronic. If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, the problem is in the dash cluster. If both the speedometer and odometer are not working, the speed sensor in the transmission may be at fault.
