The speedometer is electronic, unless the transmission shifts strange you will need the speedo pulled and sent out by a Ford/Mercury dealer for repair.

Replaced input and output speed sensors for erratic speedometer. Now the speedometer remains at 0. Anyone have a suggestion on what else could be wrong?


input and out put speed sensors tell the TCM and the ECM the difference between engine rpms and transmission input roms so that the correct gear ratio can be selected
A speedo sensor reads the out put shaft (drive line ) shaft and refers to road speed for speed and odometer readings and to calculate the fuel consumption rate
it is possible that you have replaced the wrong sensor
Talk with an accredited transmission specialist shop and have the problem diagnosed

Speedometer has quit working.


The voltage of your car's battery and the surge from the other car's battery when you jumped might have been enough to blow the fuse on the electronic speed sensor, or the sensor itself, try locating the fuse box and search for anything to do with sensors or so, if there's nothing wrong there it's the sensor itself, and you'll need to take it to a workshop.
