First thing to do is check ALL of your fuses.. The speedometer is electronic.. Remember there is 2 fuse boxes..

If fuse #8 & #18 are good then:
NOTE:
Only wiring harness end of connector is to be probed.

Connect Digital Volt-Ohmmeter to Pin 4 (speed in +) and Pin 5 (speed in -).

Does the voltage increase smoothly and continuously from 0 to approximately 3.5 volts as vehicle speed increases from 0 to 48 km/h (0 to 30 mph)?
OR,

If available, a frequency counter may be connected to Pin 4 (Speed in +) and Pin 5 (Speed in -).

Does the displayed frequency of the signal increase smoothly and continuously from 0 to approximately 667 Hz at approximately 48 km/h (30 mph)?
OR,

If neither a voltmeter nor frequency counter is available, vehicle speed control may be used as a good indicator. If it works normally, then the speedometer module is at least receiving a speed input signal and the wiring and sensor can be assumed to be good.

A wiring diagram:
