1997 Taurus Speedometer/Odometer Suddenly Stop

My 1997 Taurus was broken into and the radio stolen. All gauges worked fine at this point. My friend and I sort through the carnage of the radio/climate control system to see what needs to be replaced. All we did was look and touch, no wires were plugged in or unplugged. Next time I start car, the speedometer/odometer/tripodometer do not work at all. All other gauges still work fine. Does anyone know what could cause this and if it could be related by our actions with the radio?

Start by checking the fuses. Might have blown a fuse in the removal of the radio. Then you will have to inspect all the wiring for damage. Is the check engine light on?

This could be a blessing, you will not be adding any more miles to the rig.
