Question about 1985 Ford F150
I've looked for it under dash but don't know exactly where to look. Inst. are not working properly, any help would be great.
OK, I think you must be looking for variable regulator for the instrument. These are usually found on the backside of the instrument panel.
The first thing you need to do is disconnect the negative battery cable and push it out of the way so it does not drift back and make contact with the battery post.
To get at the regulator you need to remove the instrument panel.
After you remove all of the screws so that the instrument panel is loose you will need to reach up into the wiring on the back of the panel and find the heavy speedometer cable connector. This can be hard but it 's not impossible.
Once you locate the connector you need to squeeze the connector and then pull out carefully on the instrument panel.
It's usually crowded with wires in there but it can be done, although you may be cussing me as you try.
Once the cable if free from the instrument panel you can pull it out far enough to press the release tabs on the electrical connectors.
Look for a plug in device on the back-side of the instrument panel that will probably have a screw securing it.
That is the regulator.
