speedometer stopped working

Today I drove my 2006 GT for a couple miles, and I noticed speedometer is not working at all. I restarted the engine few times but it is still not working. I read a code with a BAMA tuner and nothing came up. Everything is working fine but speedometer. Has anyone had this problem before? What is a possibility of this issue?

mustbstangin brings up a good point. It's very common for the gauge clusters to go bad on the 05-09 Mustangs. There's even a TSB from Ford about the known symptoms. Try a few searches on the forum for the TSB and you'll see exactly what we're talking about.

I believe there's a few tests you can perform to confirm it's not the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission too. Although, they're not known to fail with this Gen.

That would be great if you guys would sell a replacement for the whole cluster with nicer gauges etc.

I agree! I'm sure there's plenty of guys still out there with this issue. We'll have to look into an aftermarket cluster too. There could be even better options out there.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Yeah and a real oil pressure gauge, not just an idiot needle.

A cheaper route would be to buy new stepper motors and solder the new ones in. I have done this for a few friends locally and for fairly cheap, the longest part for me is calibrating them to the proper position.
