I seem to remember there is a sensor for that - I believe its back by the rear axle

Someone else will need to chime in here with the correct info

BTW - welcome to the site !

There are two sensors, one on the rearend and one on the output of the transmission. But usually if one or both of them fail the ABS and Brake light come on. If they aren't on then I'd check on the speedometer cable.
Haven't had to deal with it.
Maybe someone else will know or do a search on speedometer cable.

Then it will be one or both of those sensors.
If you can get an reading of the codes then it might help narrowing it down.
You can get it done for free at some of the auto parts places.

Most likely the one in the rear end. If the trans is shifting ok I would replace the one in the rear end.

I had a problem w/ speedo, odometer, cruise control not working. found that the sensor on rear transfer case was smashed by my DIY exhaust job. took it to the muffler shop and got the main problem fixed. swapped out sensor and removed neg. bat. cable. speedo works now....kinda. it moves up after i get to 15 mph and isn't smooth or even accurate...it has been like that for so long that i am used to it but im sure if you try and replace that sensor, would be a good starting point for you.
