2000 Fleetwood Pace Arrow on a Ford F53 chasis. While driving along the speedometer went to zero and of course the odometer stopped as well. Not a big deal but the cruise control quit as well. About a hour later it starting working again, and has worked OK since. However, it will probably repeat at some time.

Anyone have an similiar problems? Any solutions?

rhkh, Welcome to irv2

Hate to keep beating a dead horse but check your gnd wires up front they maybe to one common point like a bolt to your chassis frame or where your fire wall battery an gnd connections are. Check for loose batt an gnd connections. Had same thing on f-53 chassis an they had to run new gnd wire from frame to gnd buss in batt an gnd termination box on fire wall. ---"007"

I had the same problem on my 2000 Pace Arrow Vision. For an interim fix, when safe to do so, you can try pulling over and shutting off the engine, turn the key al the way to off, then restart. In most cases, everything works fine for a while. Ask your Ford dealer about this, as there is a TSB out on it. The same problem that 007 quoted as the cause.

Thanks for the tips. Always nice to know you are not alone with this problem. I checked all the grounds for the batteries with no problems found. 007 states these ground connections are up front somewhere. All my battery grounds are frame connected in the right front wheel area. Any idea, where up front is?

Where can I get the appropriate TSB from Ford or on the internet somewhere?

On the fire wall panel drivers side do you have a box with power bus for batt an gnd an your isolator coils, may have a clear plastic cover or they maybe exposed. I have had three Fords an can't remember what it looks like will have to check out a friends to refresh my mind. Give road side assistance a call they may be able to help. --"007"

That same problem can happen with the connections to the circuit board that is behind the dash. Check for loose or poor connections there as well.

Have your Ford dealer complete TSB 2-11-03. This TSB will resolve your problem as it corrects grounding problems on several circuits.
