The problem is inside the speedo and has to go to a speedo shop to be repaired.

If the speedometer works, but the odometer is not working, there could be a fuse blown if the odometer is digital. If the odometer is not digital, then a gear is broken in the speedometer cable. It should be replaced.

Speedometer is ran by electronic sensor on rear end. Odometer is ran from speedometer. If both don't work problem is sensor. If speedometer works sensor is okay. If speedometer works and odometer does not problem is in mechanical parts (gears) of of odometer and has to be replaced. Can get used from eBay (search for speedometer or odometer, is one unit) or take to dealer.

My speedometer works and the odometer does not because there is a plastic gear in the odometer that is broken.

They both work off of the same signal. If the speedometer works but the odometer doesn't, the odometer has failed.

If the speedo works, but the odometer doesn't . The cluster needs replaced.

Check with the dealership or the manufacturer to see. I don't think that the odometer has a plug in the fuse box but it wouldn't hurt to look.

Have speedometer head repaired professionally or replace speedometer head

The cable that controls the speedometer needs to be replaced more than likely. That is what had to be done to a Dodge Stealth's speedometer to work properly. ==New Answer == Actually - there is no speedometer/odometer cable on a 1993 Honda. The system is all-electrical. So it has to be either a bad wiring harness/plug connector, OR a bad speedometer head (unlikely).

If the trouble is the speedometer itself, you can't; but it could be the sending unit and that can be replaced fairly easily. If you remove the right front wheel and move the skirt it can be seen on top of the transaxle extension. If your speedometer AND odometer have ceased to work this is the culprit but if the odometer works accurately but not the speedometer you need another instrument cluster to get a new speedometer.

you need to change the speedometer cause if your odometer is counting then speedometer should be working too. make sure your speed gear its working its in the side of the transmission The odometer and speedometer read off of the same signal. If one works, the signal is ok and the other gauge is bad.

different wires connected to each thing

Stepper motor for speedometer has a broken gear in it, causing unpredictable operation. If the odometer is still working, then the speed sensor is OK. Instrument cluster needs repair.

93 Nissan 300ZX P. Steering/odometerThe odometer stopped but the speedometer still works? I have to belive these are two different problems. There just shouldn't be any connection between the two. Treat it as such. Look at the power steering first. Is the belt intact and tight? Fluid full? Digital readout on odometer or mechanical? If mechanical, and the speedometer still works, then it is just the odometer that's bad. Direct connection speedometer to odometer, with no connection to the power steering as far as I know, and no reason for there to be. Even if digital, the power steering is simply a pump and some hoses with no need for anything electrical. There is no reason for the two to be connected.

the little gear that turns the numbers is broke and the only way to fix is replace the whole speedometer.

The speedometer needs to work in a vehicle for safety and informative reasons. The causes of it intermittently working could be the lack of electricity, or a problem with the sensor.รŠ

the odometer works by a device on axle and or wheel close to the ball berring close to ABS as well it records how many times the wheel spins. depending on the wheel's size you may have a differant miles.the speedometer works by pretty much the same way it just spins depending on how many times it spins per second and counts the spins.
