Try this.

When your speedo or other instruments are not working.
1) Stop and shut car off
2) With the vehicle off, put it into R (reverse)
3) Attempt to start car a few times (the car wont start in reverse)

This should resync your gauges.

Locate speedometer cable

The speed meter cable arises from rear middle side of the transmission and is attached to the rear of combination meter assembly. It is a two part system. One is the inner speed meter wire and the outer cable or sleeve, in which the inner speed meter wire rotates to show the vehicle speed. The speed meter cable is in some Toyota models is made up or two cables, a smaller cable near the transmission side and larger one towards the meter, which are joined together to form a single piece First look up the inner wire of smaller piece and then pull out the other larger inner wire, without removing the whole cable. If it is found broken, replace the whole assembly.
To replace the speed meter cable assembly, unscrew the cable at the transmission side. Sit on a driver's seat, open the Philips screws from under side of the combination meter. Pull out the whole cover by tilting it to release from the steering wheel. Unscrew the 4 Philips screws, pull out the meter assembly a bit, bend your claw to approach behind the meter assembly, push the speed meter plastic lock force fully towards the cable and pull out the cable.
Ask your companion to slowly pull out the cable from the engine compartment side and you also push the cable towards the same direction simultaneously to take it out.
Install the new cable in the reversed order of dis assembly.
Hope that works. Thank you.

I replaced the heater blower resistor, and the fan is still missing the same speed?

The blower motor is ground side controlled through the switch first and then through the blower resistor. It is entirely possible for the resistor to be fine and the switch is actually your problem.

I need to know what speed is not working and if you have a test light or a volt meter? I will then be able to get you some detailed instructions on what to check to find the true source of you problem.

If you don't have a test light or a voltmeter than you next best possible fix is replacing the fan speed switch.

Why is it that once the speed meter stops reading,it affects the speed of the car and gear selection

It is because the speedometer is run off the wheel/ speed sensors. threw the ABS module. Which in turn sends the signal to the ecm, that runs all the other sensors and actuators. When the ECM doesn't sense any speed it thinks the vehicle is stopped, or in park. So it runs the engine a certain way. I had a 200 windstar and worked on several others that the exciter ring on the cv axles split. This caused an intermittant speedometer lose. I pushed the exciter ring back in place and spot welded in a couple of places and never had any problems afterwards. If this is your problem , you don't have to worry about the gap in the ring, when you get it back on.
