Odometer works fine, but the speedometer reads 0 when driving. If the cable were bad, would the odometer work?

Nope it would not. VW speedos are turned by a magnetic connection inside. this normally works both the mph part and also the odometer. I would think that your needle is loose on the shaft that comes out but you would have to disassemble the unit to truly find out whats wrong... It would be much cheaper and easier to buy a good used one from one of the many used parts vendors out there.
