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.
Your speedometer, odometer, and cruise control quits working; That's all. It happened to me when I replaced the transmission on my Altima and the two wires came out of the connector.
maybe your speed sensor is bad you will get a check engine light on the dashboard too.
I had a similar problem on my old 90 Nissan pathfinder and it ended up been a Speedometer cable that broke.
you have to get anew speedometer,speedy bo peep.
The odometer on a 1993 Nissan Quest will stop working if the sending unit has failed. When a signal is not received from the sensor, the odometer is unable to properly update.
my odometer sometimes working sometimes not working

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.
needle might be cracked
Its either a faulty cable or a faulty electrical connection.
If speedometer itself is working then gears inside the assembly are damaged.
check if it has a speedometer cable if not the speed sensor needs to be replaced
I have never heard of a Nissan bluebird but federal law forbids the disconnecting of the odometer
you probably have a bad speedometer cable. usually you have to order a new one from the dealership.
why does speedometer come on and off ?
The repair for an odometer on the 1999 Nissan Sentra SE varies depending on the type of damage. You might repair the odometer by simply replacing the fuse for this part. You might also repair the odometer by replacing the cables.
1998 Nissan Pathfinder the speedometer and heat gauge quit workin?
The speedometer is cable driven.
This is based on my experience with a 1995 200 sx se. I assume they are similar. The se uses the 1.6 engine and the se-r the 2.0. engine. 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 but first; If neither are working try to set your Cruise control. If it "goes wild" with clicks etc. and does not work the problem is likely the speed sensor located on the transmission. Find it on top on the transmission rear the fire wall. One set screw hold a small retaining plate. Remove it and pull straight up. The nylon gear wears out and causes it to not contact the drive gear anymore.
That will mess up your speedometer and odometer. It will look like you are going faster than you are (not a real problem) and your miles will add up faster (a problem when you want to re-sell).
