Speedometer and odometer on 1996 Volkswagen Golf

A few weeks ago my speedometer and odometer stopped working. The gas, temp, and oil gages still work. Sometimes the they will work when I start up but once I turn on the car off and back on they don't. Just would like to know what it could be before i take it in to get fixed so i don't get ripped off.

Thanks in advance
