Speedometer not working on 06 F250 after cleaning engine

OK. Pressure washed my truck. Probably got a little carried away with the water. Long story short, ended up with about a dozen different codes and a truck that wouldn't start. Opened up all the connectors that I could find under the hood and used compressed air to dry them out. Used electrical grease to keep them water tight. Everything works great, but now my speedometer doesn't work. I've checked and cleaned the unit on the transmission. I also have an Edge CS and it doesn't show the speed either. I was getting a VSS error til I cleaned and dried the transmission unit. Now no errors and no speedo...

Speedo problems

Any particular fuse? I can't find anything bad. Wondering if it is possible to have shorted the transmission unit out. Did find water in one connection and once I cleaned and dried it, everything started working again, except the speedo...

Bad ABS module

New update. Took my truck to the Ford dealership today and was told the following;

"Self Test P0500 in multiple modules. Checked rear axle speed sensor input to ABS module OK No output to other modules. Faulty ABS module."

Here's my question. If I get another ABS module, is this going to be a simple plug in operation? I found one off a truck of the same year, with all the same options. Can I just plug it in or does it have to be programmed?

BTW - This weekend, I'm going to take the electronic portion off and clean it with electronics cleaner, make sure it's dry and put it back together. Is that doesn't work, the plan is to order a replacement. $700 though Ford or a used one of $100.

Speedo update

OK. Purchased an ABS module from B and R Auto Wrecking on eBay and swapped the module on their unit for the one on mine. Got into my truck and turned the key to the on position. The ABS light immediately came on. Undeterred, I went for a short drive. My speedometer works, but the ABS dash light is on. My ABS did appear to work, but I don't know for sure tomorrow. I'll update again tomorrow.

If anyone has any clues about clearing the ABS code, I'm all ears. Other than that, this weekend, I'll try disconnecting the batteries over night...
