Sounds like you may need a battery once you replace the battery check to make sure the alternator is charging.

    You don't need a battery. you need to remove gauge cluster, have someone other than Dillywacksac re-solder a small(3/16x5/8 long-looks like an upside bath tub).then reinstall, becarful cause once you take the gauge cluster apart the needles fall aoof and you have to make sure you get then in the right position or they will not be accurate.

Cluster panel lights on 2005 ford freestar goes off and comes back on no problem with engine etc why


Pull the fuse and put it back in, first. Then pull the plug on the back of the IP and put it back in. It is intermittent. These will usually fix the problem... Corrosion.

Gauges going crazy


Euc? Do you mean ecu, the computer? Don't think so. Something in the cluster, maybe the little voltage regulator on the back of the cluster. But if the engine light is flashing, definitely have it scanned for trouble codes, first, to see why the light is on. The light may indicate a poor link or connection with the cluster.

I have a 2005 Dodge Dakota V8 4x4 when key is in start position gauges and radio will not work, in accessory position they work and then will not shut off when trying to turn off.


This may sound crazy but, I believe they feed through the cluster. I have had durangos and grand cherokees with problems like this. The durango was an 04 and the dome lights would not shut off. The grand cherokee was a radio that would not shut off. It was in the Insterment Cluster both times. I have not seen this problem with a dakota however. I am betting the same manufactor makes all of their clusters.

I have a 2005 ford freestyle the ac is fully charged the rear works great the front passenger side is ok but the drivers side is warm about 20 degrees difference between the drivers side an passenger


there is a door that directs cold or hot air behind the dashboard in order to make the passenger's side colder or hotter relative to the driver's side.
The a/c door servo may be bad, or the temperature settings for each zone are not balanced.

2005 Mustang all of my Gauge readings are going crazy. Says I am going 70 when I am going 30 the tachometer goes way below 0 in the wrong direction. And the temp gauge reading is always on c.


On the 05 Mustang instrument clusters this is a common problem, it's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board. It can be fixed though, check out this page for more on how to get it repaired - 05 mustang instrument cluster repair

Ford freestyle air condtioner does blow cold air


I suspect you have a very slow leak in the system. Get a can of freon that has a gauge on it. Connect ot he low side port on the a/c line under the hood and add a can of fren and see if the gauge reads OK. If low add freon. If good, take to dealer or a/c shop.
They can add dye to find leak with a leak detecter.

Dash, running lights, radio..on and off


Something similar happened to my 2005. the gauges went crazy! stopped half way or dropped completely down. Like the fuel indicator, speedometer, tach. While I never lost the radio or headlights, I did lose my dashboard lights--pretty creepy at night. My husband did some online digging and found the problem. In the dashboard gauge set-up there is a poor solder on one of the electronic components. He took the gauge center off, popped it open, found the crappy solder, fixed it, put it back in and it has worked fine ever since!!!



the ****--Ford knows about this faulty soldering and since it doesn\'t happen to ALL of the cars--just a select few(even more models we found out later)--they won\'t do a recall. Even if you take it to a dealership for them to fix, odds are they could replace it with an entire unit with the same problem. Your best bet is to fix the bad solder yourself or find someone who can.
