The speedo, RABS, and tranny all use the same VSS in the rear end. If the speedo is working smoothly g-e-n-e-r-a-l-l-y this should tell you the wiring and VSS are in ok order. Look behind the glove box for a black wire with orange stripe (I can get to mine easily from under the dash instead of dropping the glove box). That wire should be connected to a solid red wire. Disconnect the two wires and jump the Blk/Org wire to ground. Rotate the key to run (not start) and see if the ABS light starts flashing. Count the flashes. The long pause is the indication of the end of that string of flashing (ie. it might flash 3x-pause-10x-pause-3x-pause-10x-pause, this means you have a RABS code 3 and 10).
On the valve there is another bleeder fitting just like the ones on a brake cylinder. have someone pump up the brakes and hold on the last pump. Lightly crack the bleeder to let a little fluid out. Repeat until only fluid comes out of the system Instruct the person pumping the brakes to NOT ALLOW the pedal to fully travel to the floor. DO NOT allow them to "lift up" on the pedal until you have closed the valve or you will suck air into the system. This will ruin the wiper seals on the piston inside of the master cylinder. Brake fluid is only good for 2-3 years and must be fully replace. Otherwise air and water trapped in the fluid will rot the brake system form the inside out.
