If you mean blue connector which has 6 pins this is to diagnostic ABS and TCM it should be secure at right side of driver's knee panels, it is possible the clip to secure it to panel is already gone but you can add a small piece of electric tape and attached back to place

How to remove instrument panel


You have to remove the dash but it is VERY simple to do.

Remove the fuseblock cover on the end of the dash on the passenger's side.
Once removed, remove the screw holding on the end of the dash.
Now, next to the glove box, to the right, remove the one screw on the bottom. Then remove this panel by pulling it out (it will now be held on by two clips at the top.)
Now, looking at the temperature control cover, remove the two screws from the bottom of this. Pull it off. It also is held on by two clips.
Now, below the steering wheel, remove the one screw from this panel (on the right). On the left there is a "plug" holding it in place, Pop out this plug. I think there are a couple of clips now holding this on at the top.
Now that you have all of that pulled out, pop the dash out. At worse, it is held in with clips.
Now that you have this out, there are four screws holding in the instrument panel. Take out these four screws. You will find one electrical cable connected to the cluster. Pop that off of the cluster and you now have the entire instrument cluster in your hands.

Heat in my 1994 Mercury Grand marquis stopped working abruptley. What should I be checking for? Core not clogged or leaking.


sudden failures are usually the blend door actuator. Unfortunately, you have to remove the dash to get the actuator out. It sits on top of the heater box in the second picture below. I have pasted the procedure below from autozone.com. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air . If you get stuck, please get back to me, and thanks for using FixYa.
