The gauge itself may be dead. I have seen one dead speedometer in a dash in 30 years, and that one was the old mechanical kind.

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.

Odometer cable on 93 sl1?

Funny thing about saturns, they don't have an "odometer cable" They use a magnetic pickup assembly, located in the rear of the transmission, just above the passanger side axle output. this sensor is connected directly to the engine computer. from the computer the signal then goes to your instrument panel and is converted into electricity to drive a small motor to turn the digits which you can see. if the odometer has stopped working, replace the speed sensor on the transmission, or your instrument panel has failed.

Why would my speedometer and odometer not work?

There is a cable which runs from your front axle to the odometer/speedometer. Inside this cable is a gear box. As the front axle spin it transfers how fast your axle is spinning to your speedometer. This also spins your odometer. Something is either worn out in the cable, gearbox, or one of the ends of the cable has become disconnected. It's a very inexpensive fix.
