Check the rear speed sensor, its on top of the rear axle. Pull it out and clean it, reconnect it with dielectric grease before hooking it back up. That should take care of the issue.

Have to pull some codes at this point. There are speed sensors on the front axle, but they dont control the speedo... Check the wire harness all the way foward.

I can tell you now. Its a bad ABS Module, or like he said, a bad connection.

I had the same thing happen on my 2000 F-350, ended up being a sensor in the rear that needed to be replaced.
