The entire dash electrical pod as an assembly may be loose . I would take it out and inspect it and the contacts where it plugs in.

Transmission problem. Yes it is related to the speedometer not working. VSS sensor may be bad. Have the transmission computer scanned.

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

The control module is trying to tell you something is wrong. If the light is steadily flashing you need to drive it to a dealer pronto. They will read any codes and hopefully be able to tell you what's wrong. A steady light is just a warning that something needs fixed but not right away. A flashing light needs fixed now.
