If it has a speed sensor on the gearbox then it is likely you would of already found it with the help you have received, have you considered that if the vehicle has abs that it could take it's speed from the abs wheel speed sensors and therefore it would be wise to view the live data from the wheel speed sensors whilst the vehicle is moving.As you seem to have a mechanic, maybe he would have a diagnostic tool? If so maybe he could run dashboard diagnostics and get the needles to sweep to check they work at the same time.
