Code 33, Vehicle speed sensor -- will a new speedo cable fix it?

Or maybe the mechanical cable is still fine, and it's actually the VSS that drives both the speedometer and the ECU from the mechanical cable input, and the VSS died? :confused: In which case I'll be needing a new speedometer unit
On a positive note, I did a road trip around southern CO this weekend, and got 41mpg with it (I figured the mileage with google maps, since the speedo wasn't working And that was with no thermostat -- I just replaced that today, and found that someone had completely removed the thermostat.... hmmm. No wonder it would only maintain temperature on steel hills. Hopefully it won't overheat with a real thermostat in there. It maintains highway speed pretty good -- 70mph is about top speed on the highway -- 4,000rpm in 5th gear. It gets a little less peppy above 8,500 feet elevation, but still not too bad.
