For my question.

Hi .

This is most likely due to the fact the ABS speed sensor is malfunctioning ,this is also for the speedo .

Wheel speed sensor front right or left no 100% sure but with a diagnostic scan on the ABS system you will know which side .

When the speed sensor malfunctions the speedometer will cut out or work
uncontrolled ,this will set off the ABS warning light and in "Some" case trip on the check engine light.

Have a diagnostic scan done and replace or repair the code and then you should be okay .

Don't think you have a serious issue here .
