The vehicle was taken to hart Ford Lincoln 117 lake st, roscommon, mi 48653, 989 275-8922 where it was determined that the vehicle was designed that way and suggested the contact call the manufacturer. I decided to take matters into my own hands at that point and removed the bezel from the instrument module and pulled out the module. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told that the pad lamp had failed. That would cause intermittent problems like you are describing.
The dealer inspected the vehicle and advised the contact to have the computer upgraded. My cruise control has been disconnected and the issue still occurs. This has almost caused us to be in a few accidents. In most instances this has been successful but on one occasion I was forced to pull off the highway and coast to a complete stop. When the headlights lights ae turned on, do the tail and marker lights come on? While driving approximately 60 mph, the gauges on the instrument panel flickered, the vehicle decelerated, and the door locks started to click.

In addition, while driving, the right turn signal failed. Got in the car, started it up and found that the entire cluster was out.

The contact stated that some of the instrument panel gauges were too dim to read while driving during the daytime. I bought this car for my daughter cuz I wanted her to have a safe vehicle to drive for college, but it doesn't seem to be turning out that way. I am told by dealerships this is very common with the taurus'. I went to the dealer and they just kept telling me that the whole instrument panel would have to be replaced. Blower can stop working and if windows are fogged or need to be defrosted it creates a very hazardous condition impossible to correct. The contact stated while driving 20 mph, the exterior lights and the instrument panel lights failed simutaneously.
