Speedo Glitches

A buddy of mine has an 06 F250. He is having some issues with his speedo. The truck is bone stock and half of the time the speedo will read 20 mpg incorrectly or will just stick at one speed no matter how fast you are going. So whos got some ideas on whats up?

The fire is pretty bad. Fort collins has hovering smoke in town from the pics I have seen. The fire is starting to be contained but its still at 47K acres in a tad over 3 days. My room mate is up fighting the fires now. Im not at home though, Im on the road for work. If you stay south, and want to visit rocky mountain national park you should be fine. The wind is blowing the smoke mostly east.
