Speedometer Sensor / Differential

i want to check and see if my speedometer sensor in the differential is what's causing my speedometer not to work. in my manual it details a pretty ridiculous process to get to it. draining fluids, etc etc. is there anyway i can get to the speedometer sensor without doing everything and just check the connections?

ya. idiot me it was a fockin BLOWN FUSE.

like in the checklist of checking for problems, i skipped the easiest part. i took apart my cluster and everything. went to the speedometer sensor and took it apart, reattached it, only to find that fockin fuse..12 or 14 whatever it was, was blown.
