Speedo & ABS sensor problem on a 1997 Mustang GT

I have a '97 GT and my speedo isn't working. Simultaneously I get a BRAKE indicator light on my idiot light panel. The diagnostic computer displays a P0500, which is a VSS problem. But I have heard that on some Ford models, a faulty ABS sensor can cause the speedo to not work. Does anyone have knowledge or experience with this problem? Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks. Jim

When I had an ABS sensor go out, the only thing it effected was my traction control. Everything else worked fine, including my speedometer.
