OBD11 tool and everything works fine ??? That'sjust for the engine computer ! Need a professional type scan tool to view instrument cluster data . The instrument cluster has a microprocessor inside an can set DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , separate from OBD2 . A bad cluster could bring down the Serial data network causing all kind of problems . Do you know what a data network is ? Your ford has SCP network .

Message panel unreadable I bought a used cluster.


Yes, but you need a VAS or VAG-COM diagnosis scantool. Yours instrument cluster must be encoded according yours car, with this VAS or VAG-COM tool, because the car have an electronic immobilizer! You need also key's programming! You must know the old and the new (second-hand) instrument cluster pin codes! After that the instrument cluster coding adjusts the various combination of the on board computer according to engine type, cylinder count and country version!

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).
