Lights and speedometer acting weird

Went to start my 2003 ford ranger regular cab truck and battery was dead. Jumped it off and now lights flicker and speedometer indicates 10 miles per hour sitting in the driveway. The speedometer needle is shaking. Any idea what the problem could be?

Actually the Speedo is controlled by the PCM I would pull the NEGATIVE battery cable for 30 minutes and then hook it back up. this will reset the PCM.

2003 Ford Ranger hard to start when cold. must hold throttle open full and crank for a long time. starts normal after warmed up.


you may just have a weak battery, or a battery that is not designed for the cold. I would recommend having your battery test at your local autoparts store.

I have a 1999 ford ranger 2 wheel drive automatic


Sometimes this works, ABS light on, check engine light on, speedometer not working, and the automatics start shifting hard or not shifting at all? One bolt and the part is cheap, its weird how one part controls so much.
