Gauges on 1998 Ford Expedition do not work

The lights come on but none of the gauges including the speedometer and tach will work. We have checked fuses unless there is an inline fuse somewhere. Have looked for lose wires but have not found any. Any clues

SOURCE: Instrument cluster failure causes fuse #29 to blow.

ok it could be quite simple
lets look at wrong size fuse
example 15 and you need a 25 fuse
also if you did any work on vehicle its quite possible that you grounded something out wrong retrace your work and fix accordingly
bad cluster relay is another problem that would cause these problems

SOURCE: ford expedition yr'00 headlight not working checked fuses..

The low beam headlamps have a seperate fuse for each lamp in the central or underdash fuse panel.
The right headlamp is fuse fuse 26 (10amp) and the left is fuse 28 (10 amp). These fuse are hot only when headlamps are on so you need to test them with a test light with headlamps on. If they do not have power to them then concern is either headlamp switch or daytime running lamp relay if your vehicle is equipped with this feature, or a bad multifunction switch.
Power leaves the headlamp switch on the RD/YE wire and goes to multifunction switch. It leaves multifunction switch on the other RD/YE wire The wire will then go thru either a connector c2003 located behind the passenger side air bag behind the dash or to the DRL relay if your vehicle has this feature and leaves there on RD/BK wire to the headlights .

SOURCE: 97 town and country LXI mini van speedometer and tach not working

the cluster needs to be calibrated to the pcm before the speedo and tach will work. You will have to take it to the dealer to have it done. The last time I had to do it, it cost me 70 dollars.

doubt it is a fuse,could be,but i would check the speed sensor under the vehicle at the transmission,it will be a plug in with 2 or 3 wires going in to it,it will be on the side of the trans.towardthe rear of it.
