The speedometer gets it's reading from the ABS speed sensor located on the top of the rear differential. It's a pretty cheap part and easy to replace.

bingo!

I did mine, make sure you soak it in pb blaster everyday for a few days prior. There is a o ring seal that you must get out.

if you soak it everyday for a few days, it should pop out
