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:
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)?
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)?
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.
