If the odometer is the only thing that doesnt work then the instrument cluster needs to be replaced. You can get a used one from sort by price and have them ship it to you. Just make sure the mileage is about the same because the mileage from the used one will stay unless you have it reprogrammed at the dealership. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
