Sound like it could be related - speedo is probably electric rather than driven by a rotating cable (if it's a digital display in the centre of the dash, it is definitely electrical), so maybe a wire or connector has come adrift somewhere. Technical advice needed here from someone who knows how to get to the back of the display unit - and where does the speedo signal come from? Usually there is a transducer on the gearbox.
