No. Plug and play. If they were on in the old one most likely you have an ABS problem. Scan for codes.

SOURCE: need to reprogram 2000 windstar instrument cluster to old keys

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!

SOURCE: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager instrument cluster problem

There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble.
As I fore mentioned I had the exact same issue as you are describing, our is a 99. The most tricky part is the dash, take your time with it.
I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

SOURCE: Pulsar N13 instrument cluster no TRIP or OD

No he's got wrong, but he's right respectively iun certain situations, but, n13 pulsars dashes (along wth old pintara and skyliones as far as I know) have a little nylon cog inside the fascia that run you odometer that breaks, because of the high demand because a lot of them break you can buy the little cogs off ebay for a couple of dollars and if you wnat to repair it yourself go for it or you can get a professionalto open her up and re install the new one for you

2004 chevy tahoe instrument cluster (parking brake & abs lights don't come on at all. There are no codes either. Are there specific fuses associated with these bulbs in the instrument cluster?


Hello the Chevy and the GMC are bad for the resistors breaking of the dash easy fix, but they are also bad for the pin bulbs burning out. So if you know anyone that can solder this is a cheap fix can get the bulbs on ebay but personally find someone that can do a good job and go with led bulbs they will last longer and better, but with all the issues i see you may want to look into a new cluster

Need Help. My 2005 Dodge Ram has the abs and brake light on, and the speedo is not working. I have changed the speed control sensor on the rear diff and the transmisson 2 times, though maybe I got a bad...


The ABS and BRAKE warning lights are on in the cluster because there is an active fault in the ABS module. The speed sensors that you have replaced are not direct inputs to the instrument cluster. Your truck should have one or possibly two front wheel speed sensors and one speed sensor in the rear diff. These are all direct inputs to the ABS module which are then calculated and sent out on the "bus" communication wire which is read by the cluster. It would be much easier to diagnose this problem by knowing what the active codes are in the ABS module.

Abs light, brake light, engine light stay on but do not flash


Well, that sucks, for sure. The only commonality I can see between the engine, abs, brake light and speedometer is possibly a bad vehicle speed sensor. But when you throw in the codes for lost comm and cluster error, that muddied the water a bit. I am sure that there are separate fuses for the trailer wiring harness (my 04 chevy has separate fuses, surely an 09 dodge does) so I doubt trailer wiring could have done all this. A lost comm could be caused by a blown fuse. I would inspect every single fuse I could find in the entire vehicle, also, I have researched your problem a bit and have found a couple possible fixes. One is that the abs sensor on the rear differential is known to be sketchy and needs to be changed. The other is cleaning any ground cables that are connected to the fuse box on the front left fender. I hope this helps!

Instrument panel gauges all stopped working while driving.


These vans are common for having cracked circuit boards in the Instrument cluster. You need to replace the circuit board. Try smacking the end of the dash and see if the gauges start working again.

Lights that wont go away: Trac Off, ABS, Oil Change, Service Vehicle soon


Sorry tina , but you are going to need a new "cluster assembly" most likely.The cluster assembly is the dash instrument panel with all the gauges behind the clear lens. As an ex-pontiac technician of 13 years , pretty much every one of these with more than one light remaining on after start-up is going to need an "exchange" cluster. What the G.M. dealer does is removes the cluster from the car and "swaps" it with another one that has been refurbished-not always do they have a local authorized repair source though. I know the going exchange rate on these units is about $250.00. Hopefully they don't mark it up too much from there. I recommend you have it professionally checked out and diagnosed as you could also have an ABS code which could illuminate the trac off , abs light and check engine light simultaneously. Good luck..............Scott
