Sounds like a cv joint has failed. Have you ever noticed a clicking sound while turning and the car is in motion? If so, I am almost certain that one or all of the cv joints have failed. If this proves to be the case, it is a complicated repair and should be referred to a competent and certified mechanic.

2002 mercury mountaineer speedometer not working. When you start it speedometer goes to 50mph regardless of what speed you traveling. Then when you turn it off it goes to 30 then slowly return to 0.


Any warning lights lit on the insturment cluster ? ABS
Vehicle Speed Signal
The vehicle speed signal is generated by the rear anti-lock brake sensor and sent to the 4-wheel anti-lock brake system (4WABS) module. The 4WABS module sends the vehicle speed signal via circuit 679 (GY/BK) to all systems which require a vehicle speed signal input.
Speedometer
The electronic speedometer receives a speed signal from the 4WABS module.

Take it to a qualified repair shop .

Does the ECM control the MPH gauge?


well yes but no,the speedometer signal comes from speed sensor in the transmission then goes through the ecm/pcm via the tcm (transmission control module, then on to your speedo,if the speed sensor goes bad usually the speedometer will work crazy if not at all also the instument clusters also go bad causing failure too find a new tech dude

Have a '95 Windstar. Was traveling about 45 mph today and the rpm gauge continued to stay where it was and the brakes barely stopped the car, while the engine continued to race as if still moving at 45...


There is more to the throttle then just the pedal. The cable at the other end by the throttle body could have been stuck or the throttle position sensor had an issue.
