Default Odometer not working

I bought my 92 400 with 146k miles on it and have had it for about a year now. I've knowingly put on about 2k miles and just recently the odometer went out. It's completely blank, no numbers or anything.

Is this a bulb problem? I don't know if it is because all the bulbs are working in my cluster besides my needles. Is is possibly a fuse? What else could it be?

Does the speedometer still work? If so, it's your VSS.

Vehicle Speed sensor. I'd first poke around the obvious smaller things, like fuses. Though, the SC needles go out so often.
I'm sure that if the VSS was out, the speedo wouldn't work, and niether would the odometer. It would read "0".

I agree with that being the problem. If it isn't, I say it's the cluster itself.

Ok yeah that's weird then because it doesn't read 0 it's just completely black and not lit up at all. I'll check fuses later after school and see if that's a problem. Could it be as simple as a bulb? Does the odo have its own?

Sorry, you need another ODO assembly. Once the gas and heat grid burns out it's done. I have a spare in the attic.
