Instrument Cluster?

Post by RoyGunnar »

i got an issue where my instrument cluster is starting to turn on and off, happends while driving aswell. Airbag light is on.. ABS and Antispin lights up sometimes aswell, and cant turn off. I visited Ford for a check on my Airbag light, and they said that i had to change my instrument cluster. buuut okey, so what i was going to ask about is that, is there something i have to look for when changing Cluster? Codes etc? i can add

I don't know too much about using Forscan as I'm learning. You caught my attention when you said the cluster would turn on when it should be off. On the Ford F-150 forum guys have had that problem and it has to do with the park switch I think it was. It is support to go to ground in park. Some people had different symptoms but one was the p for park not lighten up. I could be way off base but I think you might want to look at the forum. Good luck.

The Ford Mondeo has inherited problems with "cold solder connections" because of vibration.
Most likely there are internal component failures and at times, communication failures.
Do not ask for help in PM. Use the forum to ask and answer questions!
