No,the ABS light doesnt come on. The speedometer just doesnt work and when it is turned off and then back on it will start to work.

Hello, I'm Chris, a current Ford Lincoln Mercury employee.

The vss signal comes from the rear axle speed sensor. However I do believe it is your fault I do recommend a new one be installed. I beleive this is a concern with the speedometer drive which is electonic inside the instrument cluster. Here is the test to diagnose this.
