Answercheck speed censor AnswerIf your speedo and or cruise control still function, its not the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) It is likely the drive/worm gear on the odo. unfortunatly, it'll probly cost $50 (Fifty) dollars for the gear to replace it :) Try here, I'm in the process of repairing two of my clusters now. 95/92 SC's May as well get some nice white faces while your in there. http://www.odometergears.com/subpages/Ford.HTML http://www.instrumentclusters.com/odometer_gears.HTML

whatever you do, DO NOT reset the trip while you are driving. that's probably what wore out the gears.

Why does your 1990 GMC Sierra 1500 odometer occassionally stop working?

Speed sensor While yes the speed sensor can cause the odometer to quit working the speedometer will quit at the same time. If you have the electronic cluster (the orange bar with the white behind it) there is a motor that runs the odometer and that can stop working. That cluster is designed to where you can replace just that unit, although I don't know where you'll be able to find a decent working one. -answered by Sye

Why would the odometer on a 1990 Dodge Ram quit working while the speedometer continues to work?

If you open the odometer, there are two small plastic gears. One is connected to the speedometer, the other to the odometer. The speedometer gear drives the odometer gear. In all likelihood, one of these gears is missing a few teeth. I have the same problem with my Ramcharger, same year.
