If the speedometer doesn't work, I usually look for a VSS or vehicle speed sensor, but on the Ford Escape, the Wheel Speed Sensors detect speed.
The ABS light may be on if there isn't a signal going from the speed sensors to the ABS module, or the module is bad, itself.
I don't know about the 4 wheel drive light blinking, but it could signal trouble in that system, as well, as far as the electronic control of 4 wheel drive or the Transmission Range selector Also, does the transfer case have enough fluid in it?
Transfer Case NOTE: Repair of the transfer case is limited to seals, gaskets and output flange on automatic transaxle vehicles only. In vehicles equipped with a manual transmission, or if any of the geared components, tapered roller bearings, case cover or internal shafts fail, a new transfer case must be installed.
NOTE: The transfer case is sealed from the transaxle and has its own oil pump. The transfer case uses SAE 75W-140 synthetic gear lubricant and holds 12 ounces. The transfer case fill plug is located on the housing cover.
The speedometer problem could also be a bad speedometer gauge, but that is rare, these days and is not indicated by the ABS light being on that says that maybe a signal has been lost to the wheel speed sensors themselves.
I hope this helps to understand what may be going wrong, even though you did the right thing by changing the wheel speed sensors.
Oh, by the way, I would scan the OBD-II computer with an ABS Brakescan tool to see if any particular wheel is still not reading or sending speed data to the ABS module.
May I suggest the Actron Brakescan tool which covers most domestic vehicles from 1996 to 2005?
Good luck on this repair.
