Question about 1999 Ford Escort
My 99 escort has been acting up and i don't know why. My speedometer will bounce around while driving. When I accelerate the speedometer will go up the true speed but when i let of the gas the needle will jump around for a few then drop to zero.Also my cruise control won't work anymore and i don't know if this runs of my speedometer or something else. I've taken the whole cluster out and cleaned all connection wires and made sure the connection was tight. All of my other gauges work fine. I have just replaced my alternator also so that could not be the problem.
It could be a chaffed wire on the fire wall and also still could be the alternator unless it was brand new i would have it checked personally. then start check the accuator for the needle its self
