2006 QX56 gauge cluster doesn't work

I have a 2006 QX56 after detailing it the gauge cluster will not work, the 4wd does not engage and around 50mph the car cuts out. I pulled the problem codes, it was U1000 communication error. All fuses and relays are good. Someone suggested a ground might be bad.

GM instrument clusters 2003 - 2006 had problems with gauge stepper motors . Having the vehicle hooked up to a professional grade or factory scan tool that can view this kind of data would be necessary ! This information comes from the PCM/ECM - engine computer over the class 2 serial data bus or network communications .

2006 wrench light is on


Powertrain Malfunction (Wrench) Warning Indicator (base instrument cluster)
The instrument cluster receives the powertrain status from the PCM over the high speed CAN. When a powertrain system concern is detected, the PCM sends the instrument cluster a command signal to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. If the 4WD control module detects a failure with the 4WD drive system, the 4WD control module sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. On 4.6L engines, if the transmission control module (TCM) detects a failure with the transmission, the TCM sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator.
better have it checked !

I can not give you details, but your probably going to have to find the screws/panel fasteners and take the instrument cluster off. This may require removing the entire dash piece over the cluster.

Volt gauge reading low but still charging 14.2 volts


the low charge # @ gauge could be caused by bad ground or high resistence in the wireing harness. Don't think it has anything to do with your 4x shifting prob I would check 4x switch and electric motor on transfere case.

Check the fues panel. cig lighter fuse also supplys power to the OBD diagnostic connector. Check the fuses to make sure the guages fuse is not blown too. you will need your owner manual since ford doesn't put the descriptions in their fuse panel cover

The 4x4 light is blinking off and on


Typically this means that the truck is trying to engage 4wd, and can't. moving slightly should allow it to. If it doesn't, you have a problem.
Some models will flash the 4x4 light when you are in 4wd low. I am assuming it is a new thing, so this probably doesn't apply.
Turn your wheel fully to one side, and if it doesn't "grab" as you move, your 4wd is not functioning, and you need to take it to a mechanic, or grab a service manual, depending on your skill.

Started with fuel gauge now oil pres. gauge , sometimes tach , these gauges bury themselves around clockwise and don't read properly. Sometimes at highway speed say 50mph the tach is reading 6000rpm, gas...


The gauges in the cluster are driven by stepper motors, these are known to fail. There are vendors on E-bay that offer services to replace the stepper motors. This would require you to remove the cluster from the truck.

My 2003 F-150 will not engage the 4-wheel drive when the switch is turned on? Two days ago it worked fine and the light does come on?


Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

I am going to guess the drive shaft will not turn, and the problem is the shift disconnect motor on the front axle, or the shift solenoids.
The shift motor looks like this

The shift solenoids look like this :

You can check the shift solenoids with a vacuum gauge. The blue vacuum line is the 4WD operation, the pink is the 2WD operation. Pull the vacuum line at the shift disconnect motor, and install the vacuum gauge. Shift into 4WD and the vacuum should be on the line, and hold. If not could be the disconnect motor or the vacuum line to the motor.

Could also be the shift motor in the transfer case, but with the 4x4 light on the cluster lighting up, the transfer case should have shifted, the confirm comes from the transfer case to illuminate the 4x4 indicator on the cluster.
