Welcome to the site :) :thumbsup: Should not be related. Crank shaft position would more likely cause running issues.

if you are missin then that will cause the rpms to move all over the place. if the speedo is brokin it wont affect the drivability of the car. its weird that someone stole your car... it should have an imobilizer built into the cluster...sounds like someone you know took it or did you loose your keys some how...in order to re key you will need to take it to a dealer to get the keys reprogrammed to a new immoblizer code and then you could change the door cylinders but then they probably wouldnt match the ignition key. sorry im rambling if you need help let me back and ill explain it better if you need it, plus i cant spell
