odometer and trip odometer are gear driven, that breaks easily, cheap easy fix.
check dimmer headlight switch, sometimes contact cleaner sprayed inside easy fix.

Bulbs are cheap and you can buy them at any auto parts store. You can also convert them to LED if you want. Will make the speedometer faces blue instead of green when they are lit up. The odometer gear is a common break and is a $20 kit on LRS/AM etc...

Pulling the cluster literally takes 5 minutes. Pop headlight knob off, remove screws from bezel, remove bezel, remove screws from cluster, pull cluster out, reach behind and undo the two wiring plugs. Installation is reverse of the removal. The bulbs are on the circuit board behind the black twist off caps.

I have hundreds of bulbs I got from pick and pulls, they don't even charge me. Always handy to have spare dash bulbs, some basic 194's and brake/turn sig bulbs in the glove box. I pick fuses out there too, just for emergency car tool kit stuff. I guess I'm a cheap SOB lol.
