The speedo not working is usually caused by a failed 'speed sensor'. The check engine light is on telling u something is not functioning properly, and that is most likely the speed sensor. U should have any codes stored in the cars computer read (free service at most parts stores) to verify that there aren't other problems.

95 subaru impreza ;speedometer quit,engine light stays on


i had this problem with mine if your cable spins wen the car is moving its not the gear box end or the cable its the speed sensor in the speedo its self its very easy to fix you have to strip the speedo out of the case the sensor is only small and on the under side of the speedo the sensor is about 50 mm long and 10 mm wide change that and it should be ok
oh remember to reset your ecu
