Default Had a wheel balance done know my speedo doesnt work!!

Okay so just today i had my wheels balanced and obviously the person who balanced them at kal tire was a young adolecent kid that probably knows nothing about trucks... Anywho he balanced the tires which is great buuut.. My speedo no longer works and now i have an ABS park brake light on in my dash cluster.. Can someone plz help. I need to tell this kid so he can reverse or fix it seeing as how this was caused by him.

First thing to do would be to find out which speed sensor is at fault. Since the speedo is out, I would venture a guess that it's the output speed sensor on the side of the transmission.

Can't say for sure without running the actual diagnostics for whatever code is stored.

i checked the codes through my scanner and got speed sensor out of range, with 0508 or something like that, and well as transmission codes that looked like 0807 or 0708. But of course im stupid and deleted it off of the computers storage base

None of those P codes appear to be related to speedo operation.
