You could have one common or two separate faults

The outside temp sensor is in the left side mirror - it has failed before so it could be gone.

The speedo gets the signal from the ABS computer (or a speed sensor on gearbox on older cars, you could have that depending on the car production number) - a live diagnostics would tell if the ABS unit transmits the speed signal okay.

A common fault could be either the instrument panel or the BII unit.
