If the speedometer and odometer are both not working, I would blame the speed sensor. If only the speedometer does not work and the odometer does work, the cluster is bad.

Are there any call backs on a 2000 alero flashes?

Yes, there is a recall for turn signal flashers on this model. The flasher is incorporated into the hazard flasher switch on this vehicle, they have a defective solder joint that causes, first intermittent, then complete failure of the turn signals. My Alero is a 2000, which is the year covered by the recall, but the vin didn't fall within the parameters of the recall. I just called GM, they gave me an over-ride code for the dealer, and I got it fixed, no problem!

Activate the 4-way flashers. This might work, temporarily. This problem has had a factory recall. Go to a GM dealer and see if they'll fix it for nothing. Apparently it involves changing the hazzard switch in the dash.
