Q: Speedometer and Odometer do not work. Check Engine Light is On and OD Light is on. on 2001 Kia Rio

My Speedometer and Odometer do not work. My Check Engine Light and the OD Light are on. No other lights are on. I had a mechanic fix this problem a few years ago and now it is back. I am going to replace the Fuel Filter next week. Can you tell me what may be causing the speedometer not to work? The car probably needs lots of help but I keep it tuned up and the oil changed regularly. The odometer reads 117,000 miles but I know that it is more like 122,000 miles on it.

I don't mind paying for a repair but I never know if it really was done and if it was, was it done correctly. I would like to be forewarned about what might be wrong.

If it is a sensor, can you tell me approximately how much that part would be? I'm desperate for knowledge. I just need to know whether to fix or ditch it.

Thank you.
