Hey there. Although we need a bit more information from you to accurately pinpoint the source of your issue, it sounds like this could be due to a damaged or faulty transmission speed sensor. Sometimes the speed sensor, which monitors and controls the speedometer and odometer along with the cruise control can become dirty. The electrical connection harness can also cause issues you're describing. I recommend having a qualified professional diagnose your odometer and speedometer so that these can properly be repaired.
