My odometer/speedometer has stopped working. The gas and oil needles still work. I am confused on what to do or what it could possibly be. Is it an easy fix?
Okay so it twirls all the way past 120 and back. So its not completely broke. It will go back down to 0 and up to 20 when I am not going 20.
Do you

Hi there,

You may have a broken speedo cable, there is a round knurled nut that locates the speedo cable into the gearbox at the rear of the box, unscrew this and see if the cable is broken by spinning the inner cable with your fingers and having someone watch the speedo it should flicker, if in doubt a mechanic can test this for you quickly.
