I have had same problem on other vehicle's .generaly there are two type of speedo cables , one is a cable that runs from back of speedomiter to the gear box , you will need to remove dash to get at this one , but most commenly they are electric , which means all you need to do is replace the speed sensor on gearbox , there isnt much to replacing this part , usually this is located on drivers side of gearbox about middle bottom to middle top of gearbox , it will have only a few screws holding it in place , mainly they use just one . all you need to do is remove it by undoing screw and unplugging wire harness , which usually only has one or two wire conected to it , when you have un done speedo sensor unit , you will most likely find that a small plastic gear has stripped its teeth , just buy a new unit and refit this will usaully fix your problem .

maybe get a work shop manual for your vehicle so you can best locate and remove this device .
good luck , not many cars use the cable type , if it is a cable then just replace it as it usually breaks of at either end inside the cable .
good luck , i am sure if you replace the speedo sensor first it will bve o.k

I took my 92 jeep wrangler's distributor cap off, put it ack on, and put all the wires back on. Now it wont start, it wont even turn over.

If the engine won't even turn over, it has nothing to do with the cap or wires. Perhaps you accidentally damaged or disconnected the battery cable to the ground, or one of the wires going to the starter? These are located in the same general area.
