Default Odometer and trip

My odometer does not work. Neither does the trip thing. Can anybody tell me what to look for to fix it? I took the cluster apart and could not figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does your speedometer work? There are gears in there to work your odo and trip meters. They can wear out. Speedo shops are dying; they used to do this kind of work. I think I remember reading on a forum somewhere about someone fixing a problem like this. The gears are out there.

sometimes the trip odometer gets stuck, if you press the reset a few times sometimes it will free it up, unless yours is the digital one. I have transferred one speedometer to another cluster ( when I swapped the cluster in my former 90 sentra for one with the tach and wanted to keep my odometer correct), it's not hard to remove the odometer from the speedometer part, also not that hard to figure out why the trip part is not working.

Nope... it works when it wants to. I would estimate about 25 miles logged for every tank of gas on average.
