Question about 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab

4 Answers

Electrical problem My f250 was working fine until yesterday,all of my cluster guages stop working including the speedometer and overdrive button light. The headlights will not work on automatic but they work when you manually turn them on. The instrument panel lights up but no guages move. I checked the fuse they all seem ok.

    I have the same truck (2003 F250 Super Duty Crew) and just experienced the same thing. I've recently had an alternator go out as well, and I'm hoping I don't have a greater problem somewhere in the electrical system. Please help!

I finally broke down and took my truck to the dealer. It took them two tries, but they finally figured it out. It turned out to be the wiring harnes for the shift lever. When it exits the steering column, it was being chafed, and eventually wore through a wire and was intermittently shorting. It would blow a fuse (don't remember which one - I think it was on the bottom row, third in from the right. 20A). It stopped the alternator from charging too. They replaced the shifter harness and the problem went away. I did get a ticket while my speedo was inop however.

I've had the same issue on my truck. I'm glad its not just me. I took it to the dealership and the they said it was just a fuse. But i wasn't there at the dealership to talk with anyone so i don't know what fuse it was. I again now am faced with the same problem because the fuse blew today on me again when i tried to put the truck into 4X4 high. I think i just overloaded the fuse or something. I'm going to go to go to ford today and see what fuse that all goes too.

I do know that whatever fuse it is stops the power from the alternator to the battery so your battery will be dead if you keep driving it. But i'll let everyone know what the problem is when i find it.

Does speedometer notworking have anything to do with the transmission not going into overdrive?


A speedometer shows speed, which is the magnitude of velocity. It does not show velocity, which is a vector, meaning it includes a direction. So speedometer notworking have nothing to do with the transmission not going into overdrive. Know more diagnostic tool for car.

The speedometer stopped working, the oil pressure guage works intermittantly, the gas guage is on intermitantly also.


Take your truck to a GM dealer and have the Body Control Module checked. The bcm controls most electrical and display functions inside of your vehicle.

I have an 04 chevy silverado v6.3, and my dash doesnt work none of the gauges speedometer, fuel, nothing works, but they did yesterday. What could this possibly be?


The stepping motors in the gauge go bad, but uusually they fail gradually, or just one, The dealer charges $300 to fix, do a search on ebay for CHEVY SILVERADO INSTRUMENT CLUSTER for cheaper repair options. gauges are powered by the pcm, no fuses inbetween, so if it runs ok, problem is in cluster

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


That Cluster will work But, You will have to get an Installation kit if you want the Tach to work. Everything else will hook up the Same. You have a Distribution Box (Fuse Box) Under the Hood on the Drivers Side, There is a Fuse in it for the Speedo. Inside the Cover to the Box is the Fuse Diagram or in the Back of the Owners Manual.
