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.

How do you replace the odometer sensor on a 1996 Ford Taurus?

There is no such thing as an "odometer sensor." There is a vehicle speed sensor that is located on the output shaft housing of the transmission. That sends info to the speedometer. From there, the speedometer and the odometer are both operated internally, so if your speedo is working, but the odometer isn't, you have a problem inside the speedo head assembly.

There isn't a "cable" like there used to be. The speedometer/odometer is controlled by an eletroic speed sensor. A wiring harness plugs into the back of the dash module containing the speedo.
