    First off, you need to check the fuses. There is a 10 amp fuse in the engine compartment fuse box(labelled OBD II)and one in the instrument panel fuse box (labelled meter). If they are okay, you need to check the vehicle speed sensor that is mounted to the transmission. If that is okay the drive gear for the speed sensor maybe bad or you will have to check the wiring from the sensor to the instrument cluster. Good luck.
