Ok you will want to start here because it could be a bad speed sensor, or a problem with the ABS control unit. If you would like to narrow it down yourself you can swap the rear speed sensors from side to side, and if the speedometer now starts working then it is only a speed sensor that is faulty. If not then the ABS control module will need to be sent out to be to be re-built.
