SOURCE: what does the word donE mean in the instrument cluster

It will flash done on the cluster after you turn the key on and off three times and it gets to the end of the trouble codes. Have you checked for power to the starter in the crank position?

SOURCE: changeing instrument cluster lamps?

the trim surrounding the cluster will be removed at first. Screws are surrounding this trim and needed to be removed
Next remove the retaining screws to the cluster. You may need to shift the shifter to low gear to remove the cluster. Block the rear tire when doing so
Gently remove the cluster and you will see the bulb sockets in the back. They simply unscrew out a half turn

Does the 98 Ford F-150 5.4 triton have two coolant sending units? I found the one on the intake and replaced it and still no gauge.


Has CHT - cylinder head temp. sensor . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM sends engine temp info on serial data network to the instrument cluster . I/C has a microprocessor inside . Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not OBD2 codes , B - body codes . The gauge could be the problem , which means replacing the instrument cluster .
Engine coolant temperature information is received by the instrument cluster from the PCM over the SCP network. Temperatures over 121°C (275°F) will display hot (H). If the engine coolant temperature data is missing or invalid for five seconds, the instrument cluster will move the engine coolant temperature gauge below the cold (C) position.
The best way to diagnose this is with a scan tool , factory or a professional type . Know how the system works and not replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose .
U1073 D073 SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Engine Coolant PCM CARRY OUT the PCM self-test.
  • A single gauge does not return to zero with the ignition switch off
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . TEST the system for normal operation.

  • Incorrect temperature gauge indication
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • PCM.
  • Engine coolant temperature sensor.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test F .

I should also point out that if the temp sensor were bad the vehicle may not run right .
Using the factory scan tool
Trigger instrument cluster active command ENGCOOLNT. Monitor the engine coolant temperature gauge while adjusting the ENGCOOLNT active command to read 50% and 100%.
  • Does the temperature gauge start at cold, move to half at 50%, and full hot at 100%?
Yes REFER to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

No INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . REPAIR the circuit. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop !

Where is the PATS module on 2008 Ford F350?


Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) Transceiver Is behind the steering column shroud . It's around where the ignition lock cylinder is ! There is no PATS module ! The PATS function is controlled by the instrument cluster. The PATS uses the instrument cluster to carry out all of the PATS functions such as receiving the identification code from the PATS key, issuing a signal to the PCM to control the starter and fuel injectors enable, and initiates the key interrogation sequence when the ignition key is turned to the ON or START position. Because of the interaction between the instrument cluster and the PCM, there are parameters that must be reset if the instrument cluster or the PCM (or both) is replaced. For additional information, refer to Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) Parameter Reset in this section. If the instrument cluster must be replaced for any reason (PATS concerns or instrument cluster concerns), the PATS keys also must be programmed into the new instrument cluster. For additional information, refer to Key Programming Using Diagnostic Equipment in this section. All elements of PATS must be functional before the vehicle will start. If any of the components are not working correctly, the vehicle will not start. Your best bet , take it to the dealer !

Where is chime module located on 2005 ford taurus


There is no chime module ,there is a speaker inside the instrument cluster.
Door Ajar Chime
The door ajar chime feature is controlled by the smart junction box (SJB). The driver and passenger door ajar switches, and the liftgate are hardwired to the SJB. If any door or liftgate is sensed as being open, and the ignition switch is in RUN/START position, the SJB will process the input and sends a chime request to the instrument cluster over the controller area network (CAN).
Safety Belt Warning Chime
The safety belt chime feature is controlled by the restraints control module (RCM). The driver safety belt switch is hardwired to the RCM. The RCM communicates with the instrument cluster over a hardwire connection. If at any time during the first 6 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in RUN the driver safety belt is sensed as being unfastened, the RCM will process the input, and in turn, sends a chime request to the instrument cluster.
Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ,not OBD 2 codes , the check engine light has nothing to do with this .
Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1342 Instrument Cluster is Defective Instrument Cluster INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 . B1352 Ignition Key-In Circuit Failure Instrument Cluster Go To Pinpoint Test B . B2477 Module Configuration Failure Instrument Cluster REFER to Section 413-01 .
For a complete list of instrument cluster DTCs, refer to Section 419-10 .

I have a 2006 Ford Taurus that has all the instrument cluster lights on after the vehicle is started and stay on. What could be the problem and do I go about fixing it?


The instrument cluster is bad ? Or a communication problem ! Your probably not going to be able to do anything with it . If the instrument cluster is bad an needs to be replaced ,it's going to need to be programmed , a factory scan tool is need to do that ! You should have it scan for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes , do you know what serial data communication is ?
Principles of Operation
When installing a new instrument cluster, it is necessary to upload the module configuration to the diagnostic tool. Following installation of the instrument cluster, download the module configuration from the diagnostic tool into the new instrument cluster. For additional information, refer to Section 418-00 . The following items are configurable: If you poke around wirers an harnesses you could short out something making your vehicle none functional , won't start , nothing !

Engine Warning light is on - Held odometer and got a code 9A9E. \r\nFord Focus 06.


  • Hi I can help.
  • The code is saying something is wrong with the instrument cluster possibly the PCM because the PCM sends a vehicle speed signal to the cluster to "roll" the odometer. If the signal goes a few seconds without being received the instrument panel goes a little haywire.

  • So you need to pull the cluster forward and clean the connectors and check real good for corrosion etc. Plug the cluster back in and run a code test again.

  • If the same code pulls then replacing the instrument panel is recommended. If this does not fix the replacement of the PCM may be needed.

  • You can also go and have the car scanned with an actual Ford scan tool and this may be able to better pin point on weather the PCM or cluster is at fault. This scan would not be a free one at your local auto parts store. This would have to be done at a shop.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony
