Hello, my name is ***** ***** thank you for using just answer. Is this an automatic or a manual? The sensor for the speedo is on the drivers side right above the cv axle (if it is a auto). I have seen moisture ingress in the connector, and the harness runs right near your engine/ trans connection. Hope this helps, thanks.
