Most likely a broken cable if you slip under the jeep and find where the cable screws into the transmission you can unscrew it and spin it with your finger the speedo should move up if not the cable is broken, replacement can be had at your local dealer

The speedometer has stopped working on my 1995 Jeep Wrangler. I have been told to replace the speed sensor. Is this a solution and if so, where is this sensor located?

Do not know all the specifics like what engine ect... Most speed sensors are located by transmission valve body area.

My 93 jeep wrangler speedometer stopped working on day it was rainin out and hasnt worked since any idea why and how to fix

Check the connection to the speed sensor gear. It will be a cable plugged into the output shaft on the top of the transfer case (behind the transmission). It is possible that it became disconnected or has a broken wire.
