This is most likely caused by the vehicle speed sensor giving off a poor signal. The speed sensor can be replaced to help remedy the problem. If the speedometer doesn't work at all it is likely a wiring issue.

Does yours not work at all or it is just not at the right speed?

I can send a diagram to show how to replace the speed sensor if you would like to replace it yourself.

Here is ford's listing for the speed sensor replacement.
