Likely one of your Speed Sensors (VSS) is bad. Sorry I don't know WHERE these are located, but get on some of the Chevy Truck forums for answers.

How to fix a speedometer cable

Well you know it does not have a speedo cable since you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission.
My guess would be a problem with the speedo or cluster.

I bought a 1998 ford explorer xlt and it has a keyless entry but need to know the code to set my own code.

In the back of your explorer cargo area there is a BCM or Body Control Module. Part of your main wiring harness goes to it. Remove the trim pieces and there should be a code written on it. It should be the code unless the previous owner changed it. good luck.
