Question about 2003 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

Speedometer not working

I have a '03 F150 Sport and when I shift into gear and give it gas the speedometer doesn't move. It stays at 0mph until I reach around 40mphs or so (best guest) and then it shoots up to 80mph even though I'm not go that fast. Then when I slow down and get back around 30-40 mphs. it falls back to 0mph. Process repeats. Every once and a while during the day it works fine, but for the most part the above happens. Also, sometimes one I push the clutch in the power to the radio goes off and makes a clicking noise and when I release the clutch the power comes back on. When this happens I can also turn the ingition off and turn the key over without pushing the clutch in and the engine still starts.

Problem is either in the speed sensor and/or instrument cluster. My '01 suffered same issues before it other issues killed it. But, when you do go to shift into gear hold brake and allow it to "swing" until it settles down. This will help with it trying to shift thru the gears and the "hurky jerky".

This may sound crazy to you. Check the fuse that controls the speedometer, cruise control and interior dome light. My 93 f150 battery was going dead every night. One morning I noticed the dome light inside was still on. I couldn't get it to go off so I pulled the fuse that is under the dash on the driver side. Light went out and so did speedometer. When I drove it later that day it wouldn't shift from low until I let off the gas. Then it would shift around between gears for no apparent reason. It took me a day of two to put 2 and 2 together. When I put the fuse back in, the speedometer started working and it started shifting normally. I finally took the bulb out of the dome light and now all is well.On the 93 f150 the speedometer is electronically linked to the transmission shifting points. You may have other fuses that are linked to your transmission.

F150 Speedometer issue


This is your speed sensor. Now i do not know if this is going to be cable driven or electrical because they used both in 95. Your local auto parts store will tell you exactly what kind is in your truck. I just changed one friday on a 94 ford escort and it was electrical. The part was around 20 dollars for the speed sensor.

Is speedometer connected to Tranny?


There is a vehicle speed sensor on top of the rear differential, this sensor is also for the anti-lock brakes. Sometimes you just remove it and clean it (it's magnetic) and may start working again otherwise you have to buy new. Yes, this sensor will affect the trany shifting.
