Speedometer problems

I am new to Jeeps and any help would be appreciated. My speedometer and odometer do not work but my tachometer does work it has been like that since I got my Jeep. I was wondering how this could be fixed. I have a 1992 Wrangler.

The speed is derived from a sensor on the tail housing of the transfer case. It's called the VSS. Check and make sure it's hooked up.

Thanks I spun the VSS to try to test it while someone was watching it and it didn't work I just hope it that not the speedo itself. On top of that no one sells any in my location so when I get in an area with one I will try that.
