If this is a 1990 transmission it should have a gear driven speed sensor (wires go to engine computer)along with the speedometer drive cable that goes to mechanical speedometer in dash.(all one unit that plugs into hole in tailshaft housing)They stopped making the drive gear on the output shaft around 1995 or so, and the speedometers went to digital.If the trans. you have does not have this drive gear and hole on the tailshaft for it, then you would have to tear the trans down and install a new output shaft with the gear machined on it, and a new tailshaft housing with the mounting hole for the cable and sensor from a earlier model.Hardly worth all that trouble.

the speed sensor is located on the side of the transmission, there is no physical cable like the older cars, the speedometer and sensor are electronic. If the speedometer is working and showing speed traveled but the trip meter (odometer) is not working, the speedometer itself is faulty, is the speedometer is not showing speed travel and the odometer is not logging miles travel, then most likely the speed sensor is dead.
