My 2004 Ford F150 speedometer and my temp gauge wont reset to zero.

Both units move as I drive but because they never reset the speedometer always shows excessive speed and the temp always shows hot.

SOURCE: 2000 ford focus speedometer stuck at max speed

it may have a static charge in the instrument cluster,try un-hooking the battery then turn the key on and even hit the brakes to try to drain the spark out of the system,hooking the 2 cables together with the battery disconnected may work as well to drain it.hook up the battery and see what happens,but make sure the key is off and nothing is on-lights,radio,wipers etc,it could send a spark to the computer.

You could try another oil pressure sensor or test the oil pressure with a gauge at the sensor port. If you think about it, the truck goes into a failsafe mode when there is a problem. You could go into failsafe with high temperatures too. The water temp sensor could be bad but with the oil light coming on, the oil sensor should be your first choice.

You can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys and it may show the problem. Sometimes it takes a better scan with dealership type diagnostics because the self-diagnostics on your truck is limited.

Failsafe mode would cause the power loss because the truck is designed to kill cylinders and to use the dead cylinders as hot exhaust pumps to cool the block.

SOURCE: i have a 1988 ford

could be the guage itself, the sending unit for those guages or the wiring in between. find the sending unit, should be two wires the sending unit actually changes the amount of voltage going to the guage. cross the two wires over at the sending unit, the guage should read all the way in one direction, do this for both guages. if the guage moves to an extreme position when the wires are crossed the guage and wiring are fine and the sending unit is the culprit. if you cant get the guages to move by crosing the wires, suspect the guage itself. find you a freindly garage to help w your repair. hope this is useful

Speedometer is stuck at 120mph


Try giving the gauge pod a solid hit with your hand. This may jolt the needle back.

Otherwise,
  • remove the gauge pod.
  • remove the front clear panel from the pod.
  • move the needle back the zero position.
  • reassemble.
See if the speedometer now works.

2000 Ford F-150. The oil temp warning light came on and the oil pressure gauge dropped to zero. While accelerating, the pressure gauge goes back to normal and the warning light goes out. No drivability...


Make sure the oil level is correct. If the engine bearings are getting worn, the oil pump is worn or it's screen plugged, that can cause low-RPM weak oil pressure. Try running with 'high mileage' oil at your next oil change and always replace the filter. At some point, you may need to consider overhauling or replacing the engine. Good luck!

Most likely the stepper motors which drive the speedometer and fuel gauge are defective and need to be replaced.

Low oil presure


perform a master oil pressure test. this is done by removing the oil pressure sending unit and installing a oil pressure gauge. if the reading on the test gauge is ok, the sending unit needs to be replaced. if the pressure reads low on the test gauge, there may be excessive bearing wear or you may have worn valve guides. good luck!
