Check if you have a signal from the sensor. One of the pins in the
connectors on the instrument cluster should have a voltage that will vary
with the speed you're traveling. Get someone else to make the measurement
while you drive, of course. You might be able to find the same signal in one
of the connectors for the radio (yes, the radio!). It's used to control the
volume (higher speed --> higher volume).
