yuneed to take it to ford it could be the instrument cluster is on its way out a new one fitted only costs 99quid after so many complaints on watchdog or it could be the speed sensor to the gearbox

Could be the idle control valve but its more common if the speedo is dropping for it to be the Vehicle Speed Sensor.

would this cause it to lack on power wen the speedo goes off its seems to me as if im driving with no battery the battery light does come on wen the speedo stops working but only wen i come to a stop also where do i find the gear box sensor ?
