Question about 1995 Ford Mustang
When we purchased our mustang last year my wife was driving it home and noticed the speedometer is 10 MPH fast. We are running stock size tires with stock motor and tranny. Is tihs a problem in the cluster or could something further down the line cause this problem.
A vehicle speed sensor that is starting to fail could cause this, or less than likely bad wiring or connections, or yes, a bad cluster could do this... But how exactly did she notice the speedometer was 10MPH fast?? There are no real accurate speedometers in vehicles (Don't get me wrong they shouldn't be off by 10MPH) but there is a 5 or so percent difference high or low in many vehicles even with stock powertrains. I've plugged in with a diagnostic scanner on many vehicles and the dash speedo shows 60MPH, but the electronic speed readout on the scanner reads as low as 55MPH or as high as 65MPH
