Question about 1990 Ford F150
The small copper cable that runs from the instrument cluster to the strreing column has broben. Is there a fix by replacing just the cable or do I need to replace the entire assembly?

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

unfortunately , no you can not.
Ford is good like this... they make their own tools for any number of FORD ONLY items , such as fasteners and etc. so that you can not work on them without buying their tools first.
The security features are definitely something you will need to contact the dealer about.
Wish I had a more positive answer for you!

You will need to go to a Ford dealership and first get the part. The remove the radio's center trim panel. two screws are hidden at the bottom. Removet that panel the remove all screws that hold in the cluster trim. After the trim is removed, remove thecluster screws. You will see the cable which leads into the shift bowl. That is what is removed and replaced
