Did you recheck all you're connections? I have had no problems with mine.

I've heard of different problems with the True Speed,....I know a guy, I think he's a member here.....he is an electrical engineer...and designed, and now builds them.

It's called the SPEED WIZARD.....And it's WAYYYYYYYYY better than all the others,...it has some really nice features.

where do you hook the power up for the recalibrator. i kno it said 12v when key is on and in start position. and my speedometer went from about 13 under to 10 over and i cant get it to turn back any more. ive tried to turn it counter clock wise and not diff. ??? thanks

I tapped into the fuse block with the connector they give you on a 99-01 its fuse 29. and you have to play with it alot because the directions on how many spins is not exact. I went from stock which was 31's or so to 38's but instead of 3 turns like it says i went to 4.5 i think but cant remeber. ALWAYS DO THE 15 ROTATIONS COUNTERCLOCKWISE BEFORE YOU CHANGE IT.

That's the beauty of the SPEED WIZARD...there isn't any "screw driver" adjustments....it's "Digital push button"....and.....you can calibrate it in your driveway,...you don't need to be driving down the road to set it.....unlike the true speed.

I just took mine into Ford and had them do it for $90. They also adjusted shift points as well as the speedometer

yeah thats the site for the speed wizard - and beleive it or not shift points are not even controlled by the abs module on most of these trucks, shifting is done via load and rpm. Except the 7.3L engines

but if you tap into the speed signal right after the abs module on the 7.3's then it will do the shift point change.
