speedo and odometer not working

I have a 89 mustang gt 5sp with i guess a T-5 tranny. Both the odometer and the speedo aren't working. Are these two problems interrelated, and how should I go about fixing them, mainly where do I start?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes they are related...........
I never had a Ford that new......... I like MINE a lot older.......But I suspect that the sensor/sender is defective in the transmission.

If it was cable driven.........I could be of more help.......

You shouldn't have to pull the whole thing to find out what is wrong, let alone fixing it-UNLESS there happens by chance to be something more wrong contributing to the sending unit/sensor/speedo gears not doing their job correctly.

According to a short search yours is the last year of the first generation of T-5's put into Mustangs, but I found nothing indicating whether it was a cable driven or signal sensing speedometer. Both should be easy to check if you have a repair manual for your car.
