Good morning,

It sounds like the vehicle speed sensor has gone out or the wiring to the speed sensor has been damaged somehow. This will affect the ABS, speedometer and odometer exactly as you describe. The tire pressure monitor light might be related, but it's hard to say. Does the light blink or just stay on solid?

Where is the location of the Speed Sensor?
Ford Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

If the TPMS light is solid then it's likely one of the tires is just low. Let me see if I can find a diagram to send you that shows the location of the VSS.

This is most likely the sensor that is causing the fault:

When I was under the truck last night, I was only able to see (one) cable connecting to the transmission. When I disconnected the connector, it had a SINGLE one Pin connector..
Ford Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

It should be on the driver's side about halfway up on the transmission.

I'm at work until 430pm (EST), so I'll try after work to locate the sensor.
Ford Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

Sounds good.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
