Not very happy. Multiple problems and need some help.

The truck runs strong and the tranny was just installed but the speedo doesnt work, the ABS light is on and according to Autozones hand held I need an ICP sensor. The check engine light is on so Im guessing thats because of the ICP, my speedo tachs out when I do the gauge test with the Odometer button but it doesnt move after I test it or while Im driving. As far as the ABS I figure its just a sensor cause the brakes feel fine. How would you go about getting these fixed without spending a fortune at the dealer? Please help!

Goto the dealer and get it diagnosed properly then by the parts you need and swap them yourself. Sounds like you need a new wheel speed sensor not sure about the icp sensor what did the code say on the autozone scanner?

It would also be in your best interest to get a monitor in the truck ASAP. Let me know it I can help you with this.

I have an SCT Livewire but it wont clear any of the codes. It just tells me which ones are on it. Its $100 to have Ford scan it, I feel thats a little ridiculous. Ill have to see what all the codes are on it when I get back to my shop.

The only way to do anything with the ABS module or system is to take it to Ford.

IIRC the speedo is connected on the rear differntial with a pigtail, make sure that is plugged in and not damaged. You might follow it down towards the cab and make sure it wasn't damaged during trnsmission work.
What year truck is it? If it's a late 2004 and later the ICP is on top of pass valve cover, take a close look at it. If it's leaking oil through the pigtail plug then yes it's bad. The ICP is a variable resistance pressure sensor and it controls to the IPR to regulate hpo pressure. If the pigtail has oil in it there is a certain amount of resistance right there and it will screw up the settings for the IPR. Damaged wires to the ICP will also throw a code.

I tell people this all the time so here it goes again: You absolutely need to have a monitor for the engine especially for the 6.0. These engines are complicated and they are 100% computer dependant to run. The good thing about that is you can monitor the same thing the computer does. The gauges in our trucks suck, to be honest and you can purchace a ScangaugeII at Auto Zone for only $160.00 they have then in stock on the shelf. With that thing you can read/clear codes and most importantly use it for the engine gauges. You can monitor coolant/oil temps/ turbo/egr/maf/map/icp/ipr/ficm/ the list goes on virtually everything the computer monitors.

I had my truck for years before I bought one and I can say it was by far the best money I ever spent on it. You can diagnose your truck yourself and you can always list your values here on this forum and everyone will help you figure out remedy. Without a scantool all you can do is guess!!

Now there are many brands out there available, even apps that you can use a smart phone to monitor. Take a look at the ICP and rear diff wiring to see if it's something simple. BTW the ScangaugeII when left plugged into the OBDII port becomes another set of gauges for your truck that are crazy precise.
Sorry about the crazy long post. lol
