I am sorry for the long wait

is this an automatic or a manual transmission ?

does the check engine light come on? are there any codes set in the computer ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
automatic
yes the engine light is on
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

any idea what the code set is ?

will the cruise control work ?

the odds are there will be VSS ( vehicle speed sensor ) codes set in the computer if there are with a new speed sensor in this car the issue comes down to one of the 2 wires from the VSS to the computer is bad or the electrical connector at the VSS has a bad terminal in it or where the wire is crimped to the terminal in the connector is bad which replacing the connector corrects that issue or a bad computer

90 % of these replacing the VSS connector does the trick or one of the 2 wires from the VSS to the computer is broken or bad

No the cruise control does not work, which it will not work if the speedometer is not working.
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

that is correct

since the cruise will not work and the speedo does not work and the check engine light is on the odds are there is a VSS code set which usually means the VSS signal is not getting to the computer which is usually the VSS connector bad or one of the 2 VSS wires from the VSS to the computer is bad
