Older Fords speedometers breaking seems to be a common problem. If it works slightly and waivers alot (what I've seen) I would say the 2 are not connected. Otherwise I'm not sure

Take it to Autozone and have it read the codes if it is OBD2 (1996 and newer) if not to see if the check engine light is related to the speedometer problem disconnect the negative battery cable and hold the brake down for about a minute. This should turn the check engine light off. If it does drive it to see if the speedometer works. If it does they are related somehow, if it still doesn't then it must be two separate problems.

While the light stayed on, the tach and speedo where intermittent problems.
