    lol, i was hoping for a kick a.. story and video myself, title tricked me also.. lol anyway sounds like a speed sensor issue, if i ever have a issue with any of my fords i have always gone to the ford truck enthusiasts site first, there are some good techs that frequent that site often with great advice, here's a thread to help you > http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/tags/speedometer.html hope it helps

    Could be the instrument cluster. I have the same problem. Trying to ignore it and hope it doesn't affect the transmission shift.

    check the instrument cluster for ground . I bet its grounding threw your speedo.

    My 07 did the same thing. My tach was messed up too. They replaced the instrument cluster and if was fixed. I have had it act up again durring a big snow fall and cold spell last winter. If fixed itself in a few days so I must have had ice build up on a sensor.

    My fuel gauge is been acting up since it has gotten cold... i drive a 2001 F-250... any ideas?

    I'm not trying to hijack the thread, i was thinking that it could be something electrical that is causing the fords to act up when it gets cold out? Just a thought...


    Thanks,

    Nick
