Grand Cherokee 4.0L odor and speedometer issue

I have a 2000 Grand Cherokee loredo 4.0 2wd. My speedometer does not work, however all other gauges do. Also my jeep was a farm vehicle and it sat for sometime before buying so it has a bad odor issue. Do you have any advice for either. Any input is much appreciated! Thanks

I had a leaking ac that got moisture under the carpet. I had to remove the carpet and dry it out. The pad was soaked so I had to cut the saturated foam out and replace it with some carpet pad. That fixed the smell I had.

@Gran_Tobal Was it hard to remove the seats and put them back in ? What about the carpet ? I'm considering pulling the carpet and using our shampooer on it. Thanks I really appreciate it!

No, it isn't that hard just kind of involved. Do a search on getting the center console loose. Knowing where the screws are is the only real trick. The seats are literally 4 bolts and a polarized plug. The carpet is in two pieces. If it isn't wet, don't worry about pulling it. Just get it from the corners and see if it's damp underneath. If it is then pull it. If it isn't, then it's something else. Mice love to make nests in stuff!
The HVAC system sometimes gets a funk. I have cleaned mine out with foaming evaporator cleaner sprayed into the opening under the plastic cowl. If you leave the AC running with the windows down you'll get plenty of condensate to flush it out. Speaking of that, make sure the AC drain is not plugged. That is where the source of my wet carpet/wet dog smell came from.
WJJEEPS.COM is a good resource for finding out how to remove stuff. It helped me a ton.

Nothing to it. 15mm socket and ratchet.
