Error code E 08 6 What is this?

A couple of days ago my 97 F350 Ford 7.3 L Turbo Diesel had this problem. I turned the key on and the speedo went from 0 mph to 90 mph then back to 0 mph. In the mileage box it said E 08 6. Then start the truck and it does the same thing.. Then driving down the road the speedo stays on 0 mph.. What is this code E 08 6???

make sure the reset button is not stuck in.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Smile Help worked

Rcannon, Thanks for that infor.. I called the Ford dealer and they didn't know what the E 08 6 code was.. They were going to take the instirment pannel off and check it that way.. It would of cost probably $200 to get out of there..

You said to check the Reset button and the other button, I think it says select.. I played with them for a little while.. HEY guess what.. That was it... I fixed it for FREE... Thanks
