Speedometer will not work 05 mustang

I have the same problem with my 05 mustang, including the oil pressure needle. This year of mustang has defective stepper motors in the instrument cluster which will fail over time. Ford will fix it for $500-$600 however there are places that will rebuilt the instrument cluster for much less with the improved stepper motors. Hope this helps.

I just put an instrument cluster from a 2000 mustang into my 1999 one and it set off my anti theft and now my car won't crank

The instrument cluster has to be programed to your keys. You will need two keys and someone to program them to the cluster.
