Most of the time, the speedometer cable breaks, and you replace it. The best way to find out, is to unscrew it from the transmission, and see if you can pull the cable out from the casing. If it checks out to be good, then it will be the drive gear inside the transmission, or the speedometer itself.

If the odometer stopped working and the speedometer and cruise control still work, you have a bad odometer. It is part of the speedometer assembly so the whole thing will have to be replaced.

The speedometer and odometer may stop working in a Nissan Pathfinder due to an electrical short. It may also need a new spark plug.

If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.

Sorry, it can't be done. You have to change the whole unit because the odometer is tamperproof. Check with your Nissan dealer to see what your options are.

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.
