1998 XJ - Odometer reads 'NO BUS'

I have a 98 cherokee sport and all of my guages work EXCEPT the Odomiter, it does not say "no bus" and there are no running conditions.

any ideas of what is wrong? what ground controls the guage?. i could use a guage schematic if anybody has one. or any other ideas or pics would help thank you!

Usually, if nothing on the jeep is not working / running poorly other than the cluster, it's the connection on the back of it. You need to take the dash apart, and remove the connection on the back of the cluster. Clean it, apply a little dielectric grease, and reassemble. Should be good to go.

Yup. Follow guidance from above and you should have a good chance of resolving this.
