I'm pretty sure that in this generation Ka the ABS sensors act as the speedo sensor. The sensors send signals to the ECU and the ECU calculates road speed. If the ABS sensors are ok then I would think there is possibly a fault with the sensor wiring loom or the ABS module. It's worth double checking the ABS sensors though – have you done a diagnostic test to see if there any faults registered with them?
