Hi there! This is most likley a problem with the vehicle speed senor on the transmission.The transmission control module uses the speed sensor to determine what gear you should be in.It also sends the signal to the spedometer so you know how fast you are going.When it fails,you lose both.Hope this helps!Thanks
