Im not sure why but i now it can cause my father has a old Ford f-100 and he got a ticket for going 67 around a turn and theres no way it tops out at prolly 50. Or was there a car in front of u when u got pulled?

Yes it can! I have a 1998 Ford Ranger, it wasn't "right" straight from the factory. There are a variety of reasons including wrong size tires, worng gear in tranny on older models, defective instrument cluster. I am sure there are more reasons.

Recently a relative have a brand new 2004 Ford clocked at 5 mph over what the speedometer said the car was traveling. The dealership had to reprogram / replace the computer brain AND reprogram the door remotes for the car.

yes! many things can and will go wrong with a speedometer cluster digital or analog, try they can help answer any speedometer related problems.
