Speedometer not working

As the title says speedometer not working every other gauge is working

Fuel Gauge, Tach, Temp Gauge

What gives I have not touched the intrument cluster in over 3 weeks and it was working last night. This morning get in to go get breakfast and it is not working

Is there 1 single fuse I missed in the owners manual for just the speedometer

Or is this Jerry getting revenge on me?

That little speed sensor on the rear axle

I got a spare one from my original axle

Kinda weird this one could be bad I bought it with 6K miles on the axle and have barley put 10k on since I swapped it out

THATS FING STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Speed sensor was the problem.

took the speed sensor out of my old 2005 axle with 31k miles on it and it works now

That axle I put in only had 6k miles and it already went bad damn.

Need to find someone with a ranger under warranty and swap them out so I can get a brand new spare just incase ROFL

IM SELLING THE TRUCK NOW ALL THESE DAMN PROBLEMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think so. Your 2005 speedometer is driven by the PCM based on the pulse frequency from the OSS sensor in the transmission. It was the 98~00 Rangers that took the raw VSS signal from the rear axle ABS sensor.

FWIW, the speedometer in the electronic cluster in my Focus was working intermittently last winter. One drive it would work, the next it was on zero and vice versa. I ended up replacing the whole cluster with one from eBay.

That's weird cause it works fine now after switching the speed sensor

So if it turn out to stop working again I need to buy a whole cluster?

Not necessarly. My point is that the cluster may intermittently work and not work and give the impression that the problem has been solved when it has not. Your problem could be the OSS, the cluster or something in the wiring.
