1999 Tahoe What would cause your Tach and Speedometer to stopp working along with trans will not shift on its own?

You need to replace the speed sensor. It is on the transfur case tail shaft housing if it is a 4x4. If it's not a 4x4 then it is on the transmission tail shaft housing. Actually what it turned out to be was the ignition switch. All of the items that failed at the same time were controled, power wise, through this switch. Thanks
