If this is a Windstar it is the same as a Nissan Quest. The dash boards go bad all the time. Usually a small time after the speedo and Tach stop working, the vehicle will no longer run because when the dash goes bad it blocks communication to the other computers.

If this is an Aerostar I suggest checking grounds behind the dash for rust / corrosion as well as the connectors to it.

These vehicles seem to have a problematic short, my grandfather has the same vehicle with the same problem, i found the short under the carpet on the driver side of the vehicle, under the gas pedal, sometimes wires can crack and break.

All gauges suddenly not working


Check the fuse panel first. Has anyone been under the dash recently, sounds like a harness plug is not quite home.

Dash lights quit, gauges and idiot lights work. Help


It's most likely a burnt fuse. Check the fusebox in the cab first. If none of those match the dash, check the underhood fusebox next. A burnt fuse looks like a burnt light bulb. As long as the metal part in the middle is connected it should still be fine.

1995 wrangler ..... gas gauge and temp gauge wont work...also engine seems to run fine but when you turn it off it rattles sounds like change rattling a little...no idea????


There might be a bad fuse for the gauges. I believe the fusebox is in or behind the glovebox. The rattling maybe a heatsheild underneath, or maybe a loose clamp?

No Engine Warning Light, but low engine power/shifting problems


well they dont have a timing belt they have a timing chain which is nice but i would take it to a mechanic with a ford scan tool to diagnose it its really hard to diagnose these newer vehicles over the net these days! it could be so many things from throttle position sensor to rev limiter issue!
