First thing to do from a repair perspective is to hook up a scan tool to the OBD2 port.Go into the real time data stream and see if the vehicle computer is seeing a vehicle speed signal.If the computer is not seeing a speed signal,then it is likely a malfunctioning speed sensor on the transmission,and will have stored trouble codes with numbers and definitions.If the vehicle computer IS seeing a speed signal from the trans,then the speedometer gauge in the dash is malfunctioning.Either way,the vehicle computer has to be accessed with a scan tool,or code reader.Every diagnostic trouble code,has a diagnostic route.The diagnostic route is available through pay sources like All Data online.

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

The sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transmission and should not be affected by the work that you did. Are the ABS sensors ok?

The speedometer sensors on these cars can go bad sometimes and often, and also low power steering fluid can effect their readings. Check your power steering fluid level and see if that is the cause, If not, the sensor is probably worn out a bit.
