Speed Sensor? Electronics? Transmission shifts hard

I have a 1995 7.3L Pukin Smoker
After going up in the hills the other day and muddying things up i drove into town to give it a bath
I washed everything and immediately after i started having problems

Speedometer does not work nor does the tripometer, dome lights do not come on power mirrors don't work and i cannot unlock the doors with keyless entry but i can lock them the transmission shifts Extremely hard now and the overdrive light flashes on and off it shifts way late at 2800 rpm it will slam it into all gears it will shift from first into second and slip the clutch back into first real quick then slam into second. The rest of the gears slam hard but do not slip. Was wondering if the speed sensor is fouled up and if so what relation does this have to the lights and other electronics Is there a common wire between all of it?
I have checked all fuses and briefly looked over it. Wondering if anybody has had this happen before or know anything about possible causes.
All problems occured immediately after wash was complete.
The last time I washed it good the cps got messed starting to think that washing pickups is the wrong course of action.
Thanks much
Chris

sounds to me like y9u got mud or something in the speed sensor for the speedo and trans problem......the dome light and keyless entry is run through another cuircuit.....so im not sure where that problem lies, but i would disconnect the speed sensor, clean both sides of the connection, and put di-electric grease in it to prevent further problems.........Marc

find a code reader and pull your codes, with the problems your having there should be codes set in computer.

I just went to checker and autozone tried to use there code readers on my truck they wouldnt work i bought a speed sensor 20 bucks i guess i will try that and check some wire connections if not i will try the ford dealer. However the kid working in there said he experienced the same kind of problem (lights mirrors not working tranny messed up) with his diesel pickup and it ended up being some odd fuse located apart from everything else and that remedied it. Dont suppose anyone has ever heard of that?
