Speedometer odometer not working

I haven’t even started trouble shooting this yet but my speedometer doesn’t work. The odometer is also not working. Any clues as to why this is happening? I bought it this way.

Most probably a loose ground or fuse.

I had this same problem a couple years ago on my '83 XJ6 and it was the speedometer transducer that had gone bad. Replaced that and problem solved.

The speedometer works from the speed transducer at the gearbox, Cody - being exposed the wires may be loose/corroded, or the transducer may have failed…?
