ABS and Speedometer

My ABS light came on in my 1994 Ford E150 conversion van. I have 40,000 miles on the van. Mostly use it for vacations. A few minutes later I noticed my speedometer needle jumping back and forth on the speedometer. The ABS light stays illuminated and the needle hasn't stopped moving yet. Does the ABS fault have something to do with the speedometer? If so does anyone have a diagnosis for thr ABS and the speedometer?

Please have your codes checked first.Most likely a speed sensor or wiring problem.

I agree with Davo, either the Vehicle Speed Sensor or the related wiring has a problem. Do you have the 6cyl or
the V-8?
