My odometer had the same problem. I fixed it myself for $0.00.
You need to remove the instrument panel from the car to get to the
odometer. Inside of the odometer there is a metal shaft that the
odometer gears ride on. The ends of the shaft just ride on the inside
of a plastic housing. On mine, somehow the shaft slid out of its
housing, thereby not allowing the gears to mesh. I just pushed the
shaft back into the housing and reassembled.
I can give you more details if necessary.
