The odometer unit is separate from the main circuit board. It is plugged into the circuit board and controls a small stepper motor which advances your odometer. Sounds like the stepper motor is toast. It is not a big job to remove the odometer and bench test it. Remember this is NOT a 12v motor. Coming from the circuit board it is likely 5-7v, I'm guessing.

I have a spare, complete working 1983 Aspencade electronic dash, but it is in kilometers. Canada. Eh. I assume the stepper motor would be transferable however the drive gear on the motor may be different for miles/kms.
