Your vehicle has the 4T60E transmission,and there is a speed sensor mounted on the transmission case that the vehicle's computer uses to compute vehicle speed,and relay it to the dash mounted speedometer.The best way to diagnose this problem is to first,hook up a scan tool that is available at automotive repair shops,and scan the vehicle for trouble codes first.Your vehicle probably has a stored trouble code along the lines of a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).After pulling codes,go to the data stream on the scan tool and look at the VSS signal that the computer is seeing,and when the speedo acts up,and stops working,look to see if the computer is seeing,a speed signal.If the vehicle computer is seeing a speed signal,then it's probably the speedo in the dash gone bad.If the vehicle computer is not seeing a speed signal,then it is likely a problem with the speed sensor mounted on the transmission,or the wires right before it.So,to diagnose really requires a scan tool,with a data stream,or you could just have the speed sensor replaced,and hope that fixes it.The speed sensor is located on the passenger side of the transmission,only accessible from under the car,but where the pass side axle actually goes into the transmission,the sensor is directly above that point,and retained in the case with a 10 mm bolt.It has two wires going to it.Good luck.

possibly ignition switch issue, remove the lock cylinder and manually jump the wires, if that works, replace the switch

It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell

I'm not sure with that type of vehicle, but on my 91 S10 my speedometer did not work at all also. The problem with that was the sensor that plugged into my tranny was missing so it was not reading anything. If you have a sensor that goes into the tranny it may be bad or missing so in my opinoin i would try checking that.
