Charge up the battery or install a known good one. Start the car and remove the neg. battery cable. If the car dies, the alternator is bad. When you jump start it and it runs for a minute and dies, the car is actually running off of the battery rather than the alternator. The only purpose of the battery is to start the car, the alternator then keeps the car running and sends power to the rest of the car.

Ford mustang was making a whine/ rattling noise while doing 20-60 mph then after driving 20 minutes she died at a stop sign, would start up fine in park, but died when we tried to shift,what is wrong


Automatic or stick ?
If its an automatic, it could be something in the torque converter or transmission. The torque converter clutch could be stuck.

there is not a fuse for just the speedo. Only possible fix is to remove the positive battery post for 30 minutes to reset the ecm/pcm. You probably fired the circuit though. Good luck.
