The light and the speedo are probably the same problem. The VSS vehicle speed sensor is located at the back of the transmission by the right drive axle Check if the connector is secure If ok replace the sensor.

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.

How do you replace speedometer on 95 sentra?

Speedometer is an integrated part of the instrument panel. If you have problems with the speedometer, check first the peed sensor. My 96 Sentra have problems with the speedometer. I replaced the speed sensor and instrument panel and still the dial stops intermittently, this turns-on the check engine light. For me, the next step is to check the wiring.
