I've had the same problem twice on my 1999 528. The problem is your ABS module. (Bosch 5.7 to be exact.) The failure mode is temperature sensitive and shows up after driving. To test this, turn off the car, get a can of freeze spray and cool down the module. Inverting a can of compressed air used for computer cleaning works too. Give it a healthy freeze, then start up the car again. If the lights are out, then you know your problem.
All sorts of things don't work when the module is bad. Speedo, windshield washers only give you one speed, fuel gauge drifts back and forth, cruise control, check engine lights, airbag lights .... and so on, you get the picture, basically anything connected to the computer. My new (great) mechanic calls this the BMW christmas tree.
You can either replace the module with a new one from the dealer, very expensive, or get it rebuilt. There are a number of rebuilders out there, so take your pick. I've used ModuleMaster in the past and they've been great. $300 and works like a charm. Google them to find their web site, and good luck.

Best suggestion I can make is make sure the power steering fluid is in the full range (either hot if you've been driving more than 20 miles, or cold if the engine has been off). Always check the fluid with the engine off. If the fluid smells burnt, have a mechanic check the power steering pump for damage. Also check around the area for any leaks.
Another thing to look at is the wiring and fuses for the power steering and speedometer. Try to follow them to see if there's any bare, rubbing, broken, or loose wires. Electrical systems are a pain to diagnose specifically, and it may be better to have a mechanic look at it for you but fuses are easy to check.
