Either the sending unit is bad or the speedometer in the instrument cluster is bad. On a '94 the sending unit is plugged into the transmission in 2 wheel drive & in the transfer case in 4 wheel drive. It has a small gear in it which turns with a gear on the main shaft of the transmission/transfer case. Both parts can be tested with a multimeter for proper functioning. If they both work, the problem is in the wiring or the connections.
