These cars have had problems with the connections at the back of the insturment panel. Check the speed sensor on the transmission, may be dirty or bad.

I am taking it back in today. I recently purchased it, and the speedometer was shaky. I had the shop lubricate the speedo cable, and the odometer stopped working. (This car sat for a long time, and only has 7700 miles). Could something have been left disconnected? Like I said, the speedo needle is working great now, but just no odometer
