    My odometer was working fine, then I stopped for fuel and reset the trip meter to zero. Then I pulled out and the odometer no longer worked. Any suggestions to what may have happened?

    Being a 91, you have a cable drive speedo off the front wheel?

    If you do and the speedo is working OK, then the speedo is at fault, if the speedo isn't working, you have a broken cable or speedo drive on the front wheel.

    I doubt you have an electronic speedo but if you do read this....

    You can spin it with an electric drill or at this point you could open it up to see what is wrong being you will end up replacing it anyway.
