    I'm having the same problem with my 05 4.0 L mustang. The gas gauge works sometimes. Just today while traveling on the highway the speedometer stuck at 100 mph. Does anybody have an idea what this might be?

    Looking for the same solution. Speedometer stuck at 85, then goes down each time I start the car :-)

    we have a 2005 Mustang 4.0L and the gauges are stuck as well, the speedometer at 200 mph and the gas gauge is always empty, as well as the temperature is stuck at hot/red, though the engine is not overheating. Typical Ford, anyone have an idea why this is happening or is it some expensive computer glitch?

    My speedometer has done this to me once before. My temperature gauge actually has stopped working and it works whenever it wants to. However, I have noticed my gauges work during warmer weather..

    same thing with mine....but mine seems to start (or I noticed it started) after a flat tire (First Ever)...... went back down in 10mph increments, but just the other day back to over 120mph.......

The instrument cluster needs repair, the steppers on the motor need upgrade nothing else or buy a new instrument cluster

My gas gauge on my 93 ford mustang quit working. the gauge is stuck on full. Help

i suspect a broken wire between guage and sender unit in tank, but the sending unit could be bad,find the wire to the float guage in the tank and disconnect it, if fuel level does not change then then touch the wire to a ground, if the guage changes then the wire is ok and the unit is bad, if it does not change check wiring and guage for faults.

My gas gauge is stuck on full in my 2000 ford mustang

You will need to locate the wire to the fuel sending unit at the fuel tank.

Once you locate the wire, disconnect it and see if the guage goes to 'E". If the guage goes to "E", you probably have a bad sending unit.

To double check, ground the same wire to clean metal on the frame with the key in the "on" position (not running). If the guage does not move, the guage is bad. If the guage moves from E to F, the sending unit needs to be replaced.

I have a 1991 Mustang GT, and it runs awhile but goes dead,I have replaced the fuel filter and that did not stop the problem. The car runs about 5 or 6 minutes but shut down and will not restart, but will...

test the fuel pressure first. use a guage and watch it till engine dies. also the guage has a bleed off hose, run a small amount of gas into a cup and check for water

Speedometer is jumping all-over

You better check the connector to the speedo and cluster, either you bent a pin or damaged the printed circuit, or the connector is not locked properly.
