If speedo isn't working, I'd look at the VSS on the tranny. Get the code and we can help you more.

It bolts to the transmission and there is a connector that plugs into it. It's almost directly under the distributor. A lot of time you can unplug it and clean the connect, then plug it back in nice and tight and it will work better than ever.

im not sure with 5th gen, but on my 4th gen it plugs into the trans right on top of the differential. If your car has VSS it could be pricey, mine cost $229 from the dealer, and they were the only ones who could get it and had to order from cali, i couldn't find it at any parts stores or junkyards either. I was gonna look for one online, but didn't have a credit card at the time.
