If you look under the dashboard on the driver's side, there is a fuse panel. Under this panel is the BCM(body control module). There may be a bad relay in the bcm. Worse case scenario is a bad BCM. I hope this information is helpful to you, Good luck.

you may just need to replace the vehicle speed sensor but for a confident diagnosis you need to be able to see data on a scan tool

Welcome to Fixya
Most common problem for this would be the clock spring. Do a code check. If air bag light on and or the horn dont work for sure clock spring need replacement. Clock spring is located in the steering wheel under driver air bag module (remove air bag, remove steering wheel, remove clock spring ). Air bag codes require a scanner and an OBDII reader will not get you air bag codes
stop by a local repair shop they should have the scanner to communicate with air bag module and pull any codes for you.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Your speedometer is controlled from your transaxle which is controlled by the computer. Usually a bad VSS sensor causes the speedometer malfunction. Are you getting any codes?

If your airbag light is on, I think it is probably the clock spring. These are fun to replace. Go pick one up at a parts store for around 30 bucks and borrow their steering wheel puller. Disconnect your negative cable then wait 2 minutes so the airbag doesn't knock you into the back seat when you work on it. Take a socket set and remove the air bag, should be two screws. (Carefully!) Remove clips holding it in. Then sit it down always pointing it away from you. Then remove the steering wheel. Take the three screws (phillips head) out from under the cover to the steering wheel housing then remove the clock spring. Replace it the same way just go backwards in steps.
