This problem is caused by the speedometer, u will need to have it removed and sent out for repair by a Ford approved electronics repair center, check with your local dealer for the closest repair center, do not go through the dealer it will cost much more.

Fuse # 20 or 21 gets power through ignition. This fuse controls PRNDL indicator, speedometer, tach, & will cause transmission to not shift gears correctly. Ours took off in 3rd gear when put in Overdrive & only ran in 3rd gear. If we tried to manually shift thru gears (auto trans), it had 1st, 3rd, reverse. No 2nd or over drive. Replaced ignition. Fixed problem. Root problem was Electric motor that engaged 4 wheel low side was bad. Every time we used 4 Low side it threw power surge through ignition & blew ignition out. Good Luck.

No bus

have ran into this problem before. the cluster was the problem. was a big thing with the jeeps. best bet is to get a used one from a salvage yard. the mileage is saved in the ecm. and is cheaper then a new one.

I have a '91 deville with 70k. The digital speedometer fluxuates sometimes goes to 0mph. The transmission shifting follows the speedometer. My local mechanic replaced the vss twice. First time it lasted 1...

I don't believe the problem is in the vehicle speed sensor. I suspect the problem may be the computer. The speed sensor is just a magnet inside the transmission with an induction coil outside to create an electrical signal every time the transmission output shaft turns. That signal goes to the computer and the computer tells the transmission when and how to shift and displays the speed on your electronic display. I would start by having a reputable transmission shop check out the transmission, then take it to a good mechanic to have him check the computer. It is a relatively expensive fix, but with only 70,000 miles on the Caddy, it should be worth it.

I believe that would be the VSS or vehicle speed sensor.. Its located on the rear axle.. I would get the part directly from a ford dealer as the one I got from an auto parts store did not work correctly.. It cost about 33 dollars from ford and It is an easy change for a do it yourself person.. Kip
