This happen on different occasion but we felt in was the way the key was put into the connection to start the car. The service department Carrie is my service rep at the dealership very good and helpful called said they had found problem. I had the accessories working but not ignition. Bulbs have a certain life span, right? You'll have to take it to the dealer to get it reset due to replacing the cluster. The only one still burning is to the far right. It seems more electrical too me rather than a simple burnt out bulb. Thanks for the help guys.
Nova: Thanks for the excellent heads up. Looks like two hex bolts under the steering column, then four more under to remove the cluster? Forum; While I am new to this forum, I have personally found the forums to be beneficial with my Motorcycles. This is false advertising that is placed on the window sticker of their Ford trac employer v-8, 2007. The new part will not be here until the middle of Jan. They then said it needed a new instrument cluster which they ordered. We have had transmission problems. We tried for 4 hours nothing happen.
Let me know if you guys have had any problems similar to mine or if you know of anything I should look for in taking it apart. This car is is comfortable and wonderful to drive when it is not in the shop. Everyone that I talked with thought it was interesting that with 135,000 miles on the Ranger. All of the lights on my instrument cluster work except the tach and speedometer illumination when I have the lights turned on. Anyhow, beginning to do my own work as the dealership is raping me. Was in the shop another 7 days. I had same problem but when I tried to start the car after a few minutes nothing happen.
Is the above link an accurate description of the 2007 Sports Trac? From what I understand there are 2 more coils to this auto and they too will go out. You can receive a refund by returning a suitable old core. My guess is that the cluster isn't getting enough power for the whole thing to illuminate. We have had 2 coils to go out. In any case, how difficult is it to change the instrument cluster lights? Instrument cluster problems appear as intermittently blank screen The dead instrument cluster symptoms appear and the cluster goes blank intermittently. Offer excludes truck freight and oversize fees.
My complaint is that I over extended myself by buying a new auto to have less maintenance problems and know because our job which is in the medical field will get us there safely and dependably. Im guessing this is a Passive auto theft system issue. They still are providing me a rental car. I don't know if it is a short in the line causing the issue, or a sign of an instrument light about to die. Was called by service dept car was repaired can come and pick it up. After the first 2 weeks they provided me with a car to drive. After a few starts and stops, the light returned.
Use to adjust the brightness of the instrument panel when exterior lights are on. Returned call only to get a long list of automotive voice things to punch. I recently had issues with my old guage clusters so I went to the junk yard to grab another one. Also I only have one key. Nearly all the light bulbs have burned out in the instrument cluster. What type of bulb do it need, is the panel easy to take off? Please refer to the core return instructions included with the part or contact customer service for more details.
Unfortunately the cluster is one of the anti theft components. So, I will be checking all of the connections as you mentioned. It just seems like way way to long to have a new car relatively to be repaired. Tolled the car anyway because something is wrong. What do I do to get around it? Joline or Joreen called and left voice mail wanting to know if I had picked-up car.
But I dont think that is the case. When purchased the sticker stated that I would get 22 miles on the road. Just replace the bulbs and ill be set! While you are at it get another key as well. She was very nice I was very mad as I had loaded a car for a trip and my car that was just serviced would not start. On May 5th 2010 this was the case.
