Default sensor problems?

i just bought a 2000 ram 1500 4x4 and so far the speedo stoped working and the odometer stoped working aslo the check engine light is on and the abs light is on as well. the breaks work fine with no problem. i took it in and they hooked it up and there was a bunch of things:

1.vehicle speed sensor circuit condition.
2.the ecm has detected a fault in the vehicle speed sensor circuit.
3.poor electrical connection or short circuit.
4.failed vehicle speed sensor
5.drive gear mechanical fault

that is what it said at autozone. so what i am asking is should i go ahead and buy the speed sensor or is this something more then that? also would the speed sensor cause the things in the cluster to go out like the speedo and the odomoter? thank you i hope i have giving enough info. i really need the help because i am in tennessee and we have emissions testing and they won't pass a car if the check engine light is on. thanks

It sounds like it has a bad speed sensor . 1 problem could trigger a number of different trouble codes .

Must be a local deal. We don't have it here.
