Question about 2003 Mercury Mountaineer

No gauges on instrument panel

Light comes on on the instrument panel but none of the gauges work (i.e., no speedometer, no rpm, no gas indicator, no mileage indicator, no inside lights, windows will not roll down, no radio, etc.). Fuse(s)? Or?? Headlights, running lights, brake lights, signals all work.

I had a similar problem with my wife's car recently (Olds Alero), fuse block had shorted out. If nothing else works try that as a last resort, as they are difficult to test and expensive to replace, although sometimes a scrap yard will have the right part.

Apparently a (some) loose fuse(s). Unplugged, checked the fuse(s) and replugged. All is working fine.
Thank you -

The speedometer is a road indicator. The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is a permanent magnet generator which is located on the transaxle. The VSS sends an input to the PCM whenever the transaxle differential carrier turns. The PCM then buffers the VSS signal. The PCM transmits the VSS signal to the following components at 4000 pulses/mile through CKT 817:
• The instrument cluster
• The cruise control module
• The radio (uplevel)
The instrument cluster uses the input in order to indicate the vehicle speed on the speedometer.
Instrument Cluster Indicators
The BCM controls the instrument cluster indicators through the SPI serial data communication bus. Refer to Body Control Module System Check in Body Control System.

It is possible that the connector came off the back of the circuit board behind the speedometer. Do the lights work IN the speedometer and gauges? Could also be that the ground wire loosened up under the dash, usually on the drivers side. Just some suggestions that I thought might help. Best wishes to you.
