speedo gets its signal from the ABS, speed sensor feeds into ABS system then to dash, OD light I'm not sure.

SOunds like rear Abs sensor. It's on top of the rear differential take it out clean the crap off it see if that works if not buy a new sensor about $25-$50 depending where you buy it at kind of a common issue. there are 2 other VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensors) on top of the tranny the Input shaft speed sensor and output shaft speed sensor but 99.9% of the time its the one on the Diff.
