If the speedo doesn't work through a cable then it probably works on a electronic sensor.try and trace the wire from the back of the speedo to the sensor and replace the sensor.will more than likely be around the front wheel area or the gearbox.

Because of the plastic gear on the odometer shaft is some teeth . You'll have to replace the entire speedometer . Or take the vehicle to a shop that does those types of repairs. I went to the junkyard and bought the entire instrument cluster for under 50.00$ . Did it myself. Tedious job don't be in a rush could break something else. .
Could be that speedo cable has become disconnected or that the inner shaft has broken. The speed cable is connected between the back of the instrument cluster and the left side of the transmission. Check under the car that the cable is securely fitted to the side of the transmission. Disconnect it and and check on the condition of the square drive flexible shaft. The spinning of this inner shaft is what conveys the output shaft speed of the transmission to the instruments. The instrument cluster can be removed but pushing a length of coat hanger wire with right angle turn on its end between the the cluster and the dashboard surround. Turn the coat hanger to hook behind the cluster and pull forward to remove it. Try several points around the cluster. It is best to disconnect the speedo drive cable to withdraw the cluster (after electrical connections have been disconnected. check that the speedo cable is secure to the back of the instruments. If you remove the cluster completely follow the path of the speedo cable. If you have to replace the cable, tying a length of string to the speedo cable end first and posting the string down the cable path will help the re-installation enormously. Simply pull the string whilst reinstalling the instrument cluster until the end of the speedo can be got hold of. Refit the speedo cable to the transmission only after the instrument cluster is back in place.
It sounds like tach is wornout, but you'll need to remove the instrument cluster to replace it. You'll need to reach in behind the speedo from above, to remove the speedo cable, before it can come out. Change the LED while you have the cluster apart.
the speedo is electronic, so if it is stuck at 0 then there is something wrong in the gauge cluster. If everything besides the speedo works fine then you may be able to open it up and look for anything obstrusting it but that is only if you feel comfortable "cracking" open your cluster. There are no cables running into it though just a plug of wires.
