Hi,

I had a similar issue but the issue is not related to connections. There are many steps involved with this, but it is related to two transiters on the circuit board that have overheated the connection for the odometer and the tachometer. To complete this job, I did it with a $17 soder gun and $3 worth of tin solder.

Anyways, I got it to work after this.

You need to unplug the battery, take off the radio panel, the dash, unscrew the speedometer casing from being held on, take off the back, unscrew about 15 screws, unplug the gauges from the computer, then take out the circuit board. There should be two blue transitters very close together and between them, a small nub that has likely worn away. Also on the other side of the board, a browned spot likely exists. Each of the transitters will need new solder.

This link that I followed will fix the issue.

Speedometer on 1999 Ford F-150 works intermittently.


I'm thinking that you're refering to the green digital odometer? It's a common problem. My 99 F150 does it. There are some bad soldered connections on the back of the instrument panel. Go to this website at F150online.com for more info:
