Check the wheel speed sensors (4). With no signal, no speedo.
Is your TC and ABS light on?

    You should have also lost your power steering because the steering is variable assist based on vehicle speed as well as your cruise control.

    Your electronic brake control traction module (EBCTM) is gone on the ABS module; very common catera problem and guaranteed to be your problem.

    It is mounted on the anti lock brake pump (aluminum block) where all the brake lines convene, left side of engine (right side from the front), behind and below the battery. It has two harnesses connected to it (make sure you remove the clips and retainers to release the connectors without breaking them) and 5 torx screws holding it in. You will need a varied tool small kit and torx drivers, tips, extensions, drivers whatever will get you to the party and let you take it out. There are 5 screws, you need to find them all and don't force it. Make sure all 5 are removed, they are all the same and have torx heads, I think an M6 torx driver if I remember correctly . You will also need a magnet to pick up the screws and tips you drop down the area.

    I took the rad hose off and the battery out to access it. Don't remove the ABS pump! The module is a pain to get in and out. There are places in the US that will send you a rebuilt one or rebuild yours with a full warranty for about $150 turnaround is fairly quick and this module fixes all your problems. I bought one from a wrecker for 25 and has been fine ever since. TC ABS light went off, power steering returned, speedo /odometer came back, ABS working fine and cruise is perfect again. To make your life easier and not have to get the computer to relearn from disconnecting the battery, I fed the car battery power through the cigarette lighter to maintain radio, computer settings before I disconnected the battery. Minimizes the work after you are done or you will have do the idle position relearn and so on.

    Let me know how you make out and I can be of any more help.

Fixing the speedometer on my 04 silverado

Usually if the tack works but the speedometer doesn't, something wrong with instrument cluster? As far as working on instrument cluster internally, I can't help you. You might be able to send the cluster off to be repaired?
The speed signal is not hardwired to instrument cluster. It goes to pcm, the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster for operation.

Dash lights wont work when my95 acura is on but i have after market security and that makes them flash when locked or unlocked and it flashs but when car is turned on and lights are turned on the dont work...

there are like 15 lights, idiot lights and park/dim.
are all idiot lamps out, or just the parkings.
like CEL, Charge, Oil, Brake,
if the main warning lights are all out, key on, and engine runs
and head lights are full bright.
then you blew a fuse, as always, check fuses first.

Half of my electricals inside the cab doesnt work, and the truck wont shift on its own

The shifting problem is probably because of the dead speedometer.
Have you checked the fuses in the engine compartment, and the main harness connectors ?

Cant find out which fuse goes where my horn doesnt work and i dont have a owners manual and it doesnt say on the fuse box

You apparently don't read your question either

You don't even have a vehicle listed

If you do have a blown fuse, then what?
Replacing it won't fix your horn

Buy an owners manual for all your vehicles
so you can find fuses & bulbs

Speed ometer and tack omiter dont work all outher gadges work

If was only techomeer would have suggested Alternator. as an option get that checked, can usually get it done free especially if you are a member of a motoring organisation.

Speedo is usually operated via a connection to your wheels so that connection may be damaged if you have 'bottomed out; your car anywhere.

Sorry cant be more helpful
