F150 Speedometer issue

I have a 1995 Ford F-150 pickup with a straight 6 engine and a 5 speed manual transmission. The speedometer is acting very erratic, sometimes showing 0mph. The odometer works fine. Any suggestions?

This is your speed sensor. Now i do not know if this is going to be cable driven or electrical because they used both in 95. Your local auto parts store will tell you exactly what kind is in your truck. I just changed one friday on a 94 ford escort and it was electrical. The part was around 20 dollars for the speed sensor.

It could be the cable is dry, this causes it to stick (shows zero) then wind up untill it frees (jumps up) then do it again, disconnect the speedo end, pour oil down and leave it suppoted so the oil can work its way down, re connect and it will get better as the oil works its way along .

1995 F150 SWB 300cid 5 Speed manual trans- speedometer and odometer quit working. could it be the VSS on the rear-end?


either that or the transmission also has another speed sensor located on the output drive of the transmission. it is a nylon gear usually held in by a single 10mm bolt. they can be tricky to remove because the unit is made of aluminum. carefully turn and pull once the bolt is removed, u will be looking for a slight curve on the nylon gear. if worn it will need to be replaced

I have a 1988 ford F-150 1/2 ton 4-wheel drive truck. The speed odometer keeps jumping. I replaced the cable and sensor (piece that goes into the transmission). 5 speed 300 straight 6


its your speedometer condensation builds up on the steel spindel and rust starts to form if you can get to it use a littel anti-rust lube [ not WD_40 ] and this should stop the jumping.

Speedometer bounces while driving


your spedo cable is probably just loose which can be fixed by tightening or replaceing. Might as well go ahead and replace it since its a 14 year old truck and its the more sure fire way to fix the bounce.

Not shifting into drive


Look into the speedometer issue. The pcm won't shift the transmission right without the speed input. Check the vehicle speed sensor. Is it 2 or 4 wheel drive?

1995 ford econoline van speedo/trans


It is either the speed sensor, the wireing in between ot the speedometer module it self. The sensor sends pulse train signal to the speedometer module and there it drives the speedometer and is divided in frequency by about 7 and feed to the computer and the cruise control. When the signal drops the Engine management computer thinks the speed is real slow and raises the transmission pressure.

In the one I had it was a cold solder jooint on the bacjk of the speedometer module itself but this was the divided output and the speedometer itself still worked. The easyest part would be the sensor that mounts on the rear axile I believe and should cost less than 30.00 dollars. If not that thebn it's the wiring or the speedometer module electronics..
