Speedo doesn't show any speed when moving? Doesn't light up?

Those digital clusters were infamous for burning out. If no display is there at all, you will need to either send it out for repair or replace it with a used one, but you will lose the true mileage of the vehicle.

did the cruise control stop working too, on other kinds of cars it could be the speed sensor or even the cable, cheaper and easier to fix than a digital dash. i don't know much about ford systems though.
