Your electronic speed sensor has failed. Replace the speed sensor and all will be right again... inexpensive part and relatively easy replacement.

SOURCE: my 2002 xlt ford explorer v6 4.0 cuts out when

Have an OBII scan (fault scan) done. Any good parts store can do it (Autozone, Advance, etc..) usually for free. Have them scan it a give you list of faults that were recorded by your rigs computer. It's easy to chase actual faults instead of throwing parts at it. I'm suspecting MAF (mass air flow sensor) and/or TPC (Throttle Positioning Sensor)

00 ford focus 1.4 estate speedo stops working and some times digital display looks like ----. all other guages work

your speedo works via the wheel speed sensors and/or the engine speed sensor and is processed via the ecu. facias are far more complicated than older models and do fail requiring specialist repair. To actually replace would require reprogramming in most cases.
I suggest you get your Focus scanned and see what dtc codes come up....speak to the technician and see if they make sense.
You may have abad wiring plug connector or something silly.
Dont too expensive.

Speedometer not working

First you need go to your local parts store, buy a manual on this model pickup,and read it. The reading is to help you understand how things work together and help if you attempt the repair. Next, if the dash is electric, or digital it properly is a electric unit in that it will use a pulse type sensor to provide the speedo signal for speed input. 2. It a mechanical input if there is a cable that connect the speedo with the transmission towards the rear of the tranny, it usaully screws on it. The cable binds and breaks are most common problem, take the cable off at trans, take a drill and attach it to the cable, spin it up see if speed shown, if not then you the cable good if not broken, and there a problem in the speedo itself. If so, either get it rebuilt or by new unit. If its the electric unit, and the dash does turn on, verify by other gauge working, if so check the sensor that provides the signal.

2001 ford Expedition odometer reads 100mph

I used to calibrate police speedometers, The odometer by the way is the device that records how much distace you have travelled, The little numbers on the bottom of your speedo. If your speedo reads 100mph regardless of how fast you are travelling, The answer is simple you have some dirt jammed in your speedo. Check that your speedo is mechanical ie it has an armoured square ended cable that comes from the engine to the back of your speedo. Get your hand round the back of the dash and find the back of the speedo. See if you can feel an armoured cable going into the speedo, if so it will usually unscrew and let you pull the square drive inner out. This task is easier if you can first get the speedo out. It will have to come out. Then take the speedo apart without removing the pointer. A cup spins round a magnet and the pivots on the magnet sometimes get glued up. Clean with fine paint brush and parrafin. DO NOT TOUCH THE HAIRSPRING. Get diagram of dragcup speedo as it will show you all the parts. Hope this helps
