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. I have had a great lesson in extended warranty, be sure to buy one. In any case, how difficult is it to change the instrument cluster lights? What type of bulb do it need, is the panel easy to take off? Returned call only to get a long list of automotive voice things to punch. The front seat anchors and rails should have a safety shield. It took 2 weeks for this part of the repair.
When I have contacted anyone concerning this matter they are very pleasant, but have offered no solution. The old code has to be erased and you need a scan tool to do that. The service department Carrie is my service rep at the dealership very good and helpful called said they had found problem. From what I understand there are 2 more coils to this auto and they too will go out. I was given a case by the Ford Motor Co customer service rep Joline or Joreen. They then said it needed a new instrument cluster which they ordered.
Was called by service dept car was repaired can come and pick it up. They have been worked out and repaired until now. Edit: When the old cluster is re installed, the truck is able to start up. They changed the main computer and that did not fix the problem. Finally after servral days car showed trouble.
©, 2017 Rick Muscoplat Save. The car was given us a problem with starting but by waiting a few minutes it would soon start. Thanks, specialeducator The above link looks right, just ignore the posts about it being a simple bulb. Nova: Thanks for the excellent heads up. Called dealership talked with my service rep Carrie she gave me number to tolling service. My guess is that the cluster isn't getting enough power for the whole thing to illuminate. Which is weird because they normally work during the day when the cluster isn't lit up.
Never has that been achieved. Where to get the updated software Any Ford dealer or independent repair shop that offers software updating services can reprogram the instrument cluster. Hi all, This is my first post. My instrument cluster light when out. I have an odd problem with my instrument cluster and I suppose it may be the bulbs, but I question whether it may be an electrical issue instead. The problem is caused by faulty software.
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. Is the bulb solder in or a twist? Anyhow, beginning to do my own work as the dealership is raping me. I got rental car covered on my extended warranty. I would hate to go out and buy new lightbulbs for the cluster that didn't need to be replaced. After the first 2 weeks they provided me with a car to drive.
If anyone could see how this car has been cared for they will know that we are responsible working class people. The dealership has been right on top of problems. If I have not had one I would have lost this car. 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. Drove car for 22 miles lights, bells and the whole dash lite up stop car immediately.
Please refer to the core return instructions included with the part or contact customer service for more details. What do I do to get around it? Looks like two hex bolts under the steering column, then four more under to remove the cluster? While the lights have systematically burned out from the left to the right. Car is still at Ford dealership has no idea what is wrong but assured me they are looking. Everyone that I talked with thought it was interesting that with 135,000 miles on the Ranger. So, I will be checking all of the connections as you mentioned.
So I will be without my Explorer for almost 2 months. I was getting ready to ask if anyone knew if it was worth changing them cause I figure it's terrible to get to them. Bulbs have a certain life span, right? Any suggestions to online sites to where and what I can purchase? Specifically, the light on the speedometer seems to be out. Customer states that he cannot see the odometer, temperature and gas gauge can be in a shadow at certain times of the day. No Joline or Joreen contact. While you are at it get another key as well.
Valid on orders shipped in the contiguous United States. The temp gauge is bright. I was weighing just replacing the hole cluster till I found this thread. Whenever I have the instrument cluster illumination on at night, and i turn on cruise control, the cruise control lights do not come on. That has been not the case. The only one still burning is to the far right. My 97 Ex lights went out around the same mileage as Graffix except they went right to left! Thanks for the help guys.
