The wires for the speed sensor may be grounding out some where between the speed sensor and the computer. Try and follow the wire harness from the speed sensor to the computer and look to see if the wires are damaged anywhere along the way. If one of the speed sensor wires is damaged and shorting to ground this will cause the speedometer to go to 0 whenever the wire touches ground.
