Lost D, and speedo stoped working

Hey guys merry Christmas
So this is what happened. Truck has sit for a wile in the cold, and when I was driving it this afternoon I lost D. And the speedo stopped working. But I had 4wd, 2ND, and 1St . Checked the fuses they seemed OK. Then when I got back on the road D worked but speedo was all erratic.
1995 F150 4wd 5.8L and it's the electric train
Thanks

Try the speed sensor in the rear axle. It's a cheap easy fix and it operates your speedometer. That may clear both issues.

Not really, make sure you clean the dirt and corruption from around the sensor before removing it. You wouldn't want that getting into the differential. I had no problem doing mine. Undo the plug and bolt, then pull it out. Lube the new one with some axle grease or 80W90 oil before inserting the new one. Don't forget to disconnect the battery for a few minutes. Then reconnect it and go for a 10~15 minute drive. While you're under there, check your differential oil level. I found that a couple of light taps with a ball peen hammer on the bolt head prior to removal helps to loosen it.
