If the speedometer is working correctly and only the odometer is on the fritz, the problem is likely a mechanical failure of the odometer. To fix this the entire instrument cluster would likely require replacement. A trained technician, such as one at YourMechanic, could do this for you. However, there is one trick you can try first: Try letting the reset button snap back when you release it. Do this a couple of times. Hopefully this works for you!
