SOURCE: Instrument cluster not working and truck wont go

The 2002 F-250 PStroke 4x4 had the instument lamps poping the fuse intermittently .
Turned out to be a wire getting pinched btween the emergency brake lever and the release stop .
Had to remove the keft kick panel and there was a yellow wire coming from the lower harness up toward the dash . the wire was pinched /hung up in the emergency brake mechanism . Good Luck

SOURCE: 1989 Ford F150 Instrument Cluster Problem

Some of the gauges are on the same fuse as the dome light; check the fuses. The other main source of gauge problems for this vintage F150 is the sending units and I don't use the term sending unit lightly, so when you go to the parts store make sure you say you are looking for sending units not sensors (sensors hook to the computer) sending units are of 2 types for this vintage F150, lights and guages you need the ones for gauges, the oil sending unit is about 4 dollars and the coolant temp sending unit for a guage is about the same.

I have 4 fords and you will come to understand that the wiring is a jury rig, all this come out when they are the age of your 1989 PU.

If everything keeps going like that then it sounds like its a problem with the onboard computer. The computer controls all the guages and would explain why they all fail at the same time.

I had the same issue with my 2002 F250 7.3 L. The overdrive switch was shorting the circuit due to exposed wires in the steering colum. I replaced the switch and resolved the problem.

SOURCE: Overdrive switch blowing fuse on 2002 F150 Ford

Remove the shroud around the steering column and shifter and look closly at the wires coming out of the shifter at the pivot of the shifter, if its not to bad you can tapeit and reposition it and be good to go.

1989 chevy s10 ignition/gages fuse keeps blowing


If you think there is a problem with instrument cluster, unplug the instrument cluster, see if it still blows the fuse. Could be a wiring circuit problem, somewhere? Maybe fuse box issue?
Sometimes, I use a test light in place of the fuse, to keep from blowing all my fuses. If the test light comes on, the circuit is going to ground, somewhere. If the instrument cluster is unplugged, then hopefully, that is ruled out.

2001 ford escape interior instrument cluster and rear fuse keeps blowing. Have changed it three times in a week. Works for a bit then blows again.


There is an electrical fault that causes the fuse to blow. Maybe a wire has chafed against the metal body and vibrations causes it to short out the fuse. This requires checking the wiring from the instrument cluster to the fuse box for worn insulation etc.

no there isnt a way to reset the the instrument cluster back to zero if your talking about how many miles the vehicle has travelled in its lifetime...you will have to remove the dials and reposition them again...either tht or take it to ford and get some proffesional assistance...

I have a 2002 explorer. The instrument cluster fuse keeps blowing, I took the truck into Ford and all they did was replace the fuse. The tech said the fuse would keep blowing. Now the the fuse blows as...


Can't believe FORD would just replace the fuse an send you on your way ! You must have not wanted work done they suggested . Cost too much for diagnostic's ! Because I work at a ford dealer , you have a short to ground somewhere in the insturment cluster or wiring .Why didn't you have them fix it ? An what is it you want to know ?

1996 ford f150 blows the 10amp fuse going to the speed odometer.


I'm glad you found what was causing the fuse to blow. A wiring diagram is almost a must when troubleshooting electrical. you may be able to find that sensor at a pick-a-part or wrecking yard. Just be extreamly careful, it is very easy to set off the air bag. Make sure that all power is off before working around that area.
