Question about 2005 Ford Five Hundred
2005 Ford 500, limited. Shortly after start-up the analog gauges will drop to 0, after 2 to 3 seconds they will restore to normal. This does not happen with every start-up. After dark when the lights are on the dash lights will go out when this happens.
There was a write up in The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio back November 2007, which was a month after I purchased my '05 500. You will have to take it back to the Ford dealership (if purchased from Ford) and have them replace for the cluster panel. Since I had just purchased this piece of junk a few weeks earlier, I argued that I should not have to pay for this, and they finally agreed. I have had nothing but headaches from this car since I bought it. Right now, a year after I've had it, the starter has gone out on it, and, of course, my warranty just ran out. I would not recommend that anyone buy a Ford -- EVER!!!
