Digital speedometer always reads 188. All other components work correctly and it doesn't seem to affect the DTE.

I was thinking the speed sensor or wiring from the sensor to the speedometer but would like a more informed take on it.

Any ideas? Thank you

If the Check engine light is on, maybe, if not it most likley is the instrument cluster.

No check engine light. All other gauges appear to function correctly. Is there any way to 'fix' the cluster yourself or is this something that has to be done by a professional? Pretty sure I know the answer to that one but it's worth a try :)

If only one gauge is affected, Lincoln might be able to reprogram it.
