    Sounds like a speedometer bus error which may just be a loose, wet or dirty connection. Have you tried pulling any codes yet? Check the attached link below.

    Did you check the fuses with a meter? They are so small that a blown fuse can be missed, I've done it.

    Did you also check the fuses under the right side cover? They are for the ECM and FI, but I think one is labeled P&A. The ECM has to be unpluged to get to them.

    Well, I went back and checked the fuses again, this time with my VOM on ohms, the assory. fuse showed a problem, I pulled it out of panel and , there it was a blown fuse, next time I will pulled them out of circuit to test. replaced fuse, ran codes, found only one code, cleared it and now, things back to normal. But I didn't find the problem, I guess checking and moving wires and plugs around, must have hidden the problem, now for the road test, see if it blows fuse again.
