If it's still built like the old ones the cable spins a magnet. There is a cup around
the magnet. The cup gets dragged along by the spinning magnet. If it gets cold
enough the cup wont move. If the cup doesn't move the needle doesn't move.

You answered your own question. It's a FORD. ;D ;D ;D
I had a new 89 F250 460 that did something like that. When you stepped on the brakes the dash went wild. Ford had 2 techs tear every wire harness on the truck open and after 2 days they found a short in one of them.  :)

No cable on a 2016. Either the speed sensor (it may use the abs system ) or the instrument cluster.

Coxy, I see you are in NY. United Radio in Syracuse can rebuild/repair your instrument cluster if it isn't still under warranty.
By the way, over the years I have sent 10 times as many chevy clusters out for repair than all the other brands combined.

Is it a possibility the sensor got a taste of all that. NYS road salt? That dang stuff wrecks everything

Happened on mine with all you listed and the fuel gauge. Found out it was the button to reset the mileage. It sometimes hangs up and does not come out. Press it and let it "flick" back.
P.S. GOOD choice on the Ford!

I had a 2000 f250, it did the same 2 times. I do not know if 2016 and 2000 have the same speed system. The solution at that time was to go on the rear diff (on top) over it there is a plug that is a magnet and read how many time the ring gear turns. You unscrew  this plug ( 3/8 in. I think ) clean this little magnet that will have some metal shaving on it and it is why the speedometer cannot read the ring gear speed. My diff was a 4.10
Easy to do . Good luck.Roger
Mine was not working on even indicating wrong speed.Yours is a 2016 so I guess on warranty by Ford !

it seem to be working now but I'm going to take the fuse back out and see if it des it again  them anti lock brakes and traction control suck  ford will get it back there has to be a way to disable it  the button on the dash only disables the rear and when you try to fish tail it the ones in the front come on errrrrr
