Looking at the Hayne's Manual, it seems to me the mechanic affected the speed sensor. Speedometer working, Tachometer working BUT NOT the odometer.

Subject: Stopped Odometer
Have a 1986 Audi Turbo Quattro 5000, built February 1986. The front brake pads and vented rotors were changed out, the sensor cable cut off from the pads. Sensor connection on car no longer available. Odometer was working before work was done to change brakes. Speedometer, tachometer function, the odometer does not work. Electrical sender to the speedometer unit.
Could be co-incidence that odometer no longer works after brake work. Told by mechanic that there were different diameters of rotors for the same year, earlier years did not have vented rotors, Quattros had different rotors than non-Quattros. 11" diameter rotors.
