My thought would be that your vehicle is originally from a country that uses kilometers. The Speedometer face plate may have been swapped out but the odometer wasn't converted. One mile equals 1.6 kilometers, hence the difference you're recognizing.

The odometer is separate from the speedometer.

The odometer runs on the same electronic gear driven sensor as the speedometer so if the speedometer is working and the odometer is not the problem is in the "Speed head" (speedometer unit in the dash). Mine and several others I have seen break at about 40,000 and will need replacing.

How do you replace the odometer cable on a 1995 Ford Thunderbird LX?

You don't. There is no such thing as an odometer or a speedometer cable on that vehicle. The speedometer is electrically operated using a signal from the vehicle speed sensor. The odometer is driven by a little electric motor in the speedometer head assembly. If the speedo is working, but the odo isn't, you need a speedometer head assembly. If both are inop, you COULD need a speedo head, but there could also be a problem elsewhere in the system.

Drive on a freeway or highway where there's a speedometer check point. Set your odometer to zero, drive the exact speed limit (try to use cruise control), and after the speedometer check point is over (5 miles), you will be able to determine if your speedometer is working correctly based on the miles driven according to your odometer and the end of the checkpoint.

Is the odemeter connected to the fuse box?

Odometer Fuse Box RelationshipThat depends on the type of odometer. For example, a mechanical odometer which is driven by a mechanical cable will NOT have any connection to the fuse box OTHER than for lighting, IF the odometer has a light inside of it.On the other hand, if the odometer is of the digital electronic type, it will, in a remote manner, be connected to a fuse which is usually a fuse designated for the "Instrument Panel." In this case, the digital odometer is usually built into/on the Instrument Panel Printed Circuit Board [PCB], and thus will be connected to the fuse box via the PCB wiring harness.
