Question Asked: 

Speedometer is not working properly. Sometimes it stays on 0 mph. Other times it shows an incorrect speed. Other times it works correctly. I'm thinking it is the vehicle speed sensor. Even if it's not, it only cost $15. Can anyone tell me where it is located?

Question Answered: 

I agree that it sounds like the caliper is stuck closed. I had this happen to a Pontiac Aztek. I had to rebuild the caliper because it was all corroded. The lug studs are easy on most cars. Just pound it out the back to get the broken one out. Then put the new stud in the back and put several washers on the front side of the stud. Then use a new lug nut and thread it on. Tighten the lug nut to draw the stud flush with the back. It helps to put the stud in the freezer overnight and put a little soap on the stud to help get it in. It is an incredibly tight fit because it just seats.

Autozone.com has a free online manual for most cars including the 2005 Aztek (I have this vehicle as well). You just have to sign up for an account on Autozone.com (free) and then you can look for your vehicle's repair manual. I have used the online manual from Autozone several times for my other car - a Pontiac Sunfire - and have found it to be spot on. It appears that the Autozone online Sunfire manual is the same as the Chilton manual.
