in a 97, the abs doesn't have anything to do with the speedo. does the odometer work? i think there is a fuse that handles the gauges, but it should be the whole thing. the speedo motor at the gauge may be bad. if you have someone close by with an extra cluster, i would take the 10 minutes to try swapping and see what happens.

I know my 94 has a cable type speed odometer. You guys probably know more than me but could a 97 have a cable one too or did they go to a sensor type.
