1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 7.3L Speedometer VIN: 1FTNX20F8X
I havn't fixed this vehicle yet. But, it is a fleet vehicle and I will see it again. Tanks to all who posted. One suggestion was to disconnect the speedo and see if the voltage spike goes away. This makes sense if the spike goes away, then the speedo is bad.
