    i have this same problem but one other thing mine did was it BLEW out my 4x4 fuse. then it melted various wires on my main wiring harness. now i need to get that wiring harness replaced and i need to find out how much one costs and if anyone here knows what could have possibly caused it?

I had a short in the wiring harness in the steering column. Took over a year to find where it was cooming from.

Hey
i suggest to check the main fuses, or breakers. if the battery, starter, and ignition switch are known to be good, then the battery voltage is being lost past the battery either in a main fuse or junction box under the hood. hope this helps.

Make sure to inspect also the parking lights or tail lights because they are related to the dash lights, and if they do the same, then inspect all the wiring on the rear of truck close to the rear lights specially the towing wiring harness and make sure they are not contacting the mufler, exaust

On light stays on


try removing the fuse for the dash illumination as there are different circuits to the dash , if light goes out then remove the dash and check the circuitry for any signs of corrosion,rust etc bearing in mind this is a soldered pcb , if light stays on it is from the side lights/main light circuit which i would start by making sure the light switch is turning off completely for this you will need a voltmeter or 12volt test light good luck and keep me updated if you wish

All dash lights spontaneously come on. Go off in steps as decelerate. Off at stop. Come back on as accelerate.


Bad voltage regulator in alternator or short somewhere. Sounds like voltage regulator or belt slipping and not allowing alternator to work properly

2005 explorer sport trac instrument cluster and odometer intermittent failure?


Pull the instrument cluster out of the dash check all the connectors to it for loose pins and also take a look at the printed circuit on the back of the panel, look for any obvious problems. More than likely just pulling the connectors and reinserting them several times may cure this problem.

Head lamp harness


No - the worst electrical problem that the headlamp harness could cause is to short itself to ground somehow (bare wire, unplugged & turned on, etc), which would blow the headlight fuse.
However, dashboard problems can cause headlight problems, since the headlight switch is located in the dash.
The common point between the headlight problems, dashboard problems, and "electrical problems" would be the under-dash wiring and/or wiring harness from ECC (Engine Control Computer, aka "the car's computer) to the dashboard - check here first for grounding/shorting problems, or water leaking out of the in-dash vents onto a wiring harness.

Check under the back seat in the electrical box for a blown fuse or relay. You may just have to take this into a good shop to track it down. It sounds like you might have a blown diode in a common ground somewhere, but I cannot tell you where from where I'm sitting.

Digital odometer barely illuminates and is about


First thing to check is the interior light / dome light control. It is usually located to the left of your instrument panel (where your odometer is located). It you move this dial up or down it will control the intensity of interior lighting.

However, if that does not cure the issue, it is possible that you have a short somewhere, or a bad bulb for the instrument panel. At that point, I'd take it to your local repair facility and have them check it out. Changing interior lighting or testing for electrical failures can be a difficult task.

2002 Volks. Jetta - digital display for odometer, clock, gears


Mine went blank after condensation inside windshield dripped behind the dash (sunroof drain problem). After a few months, in really dry winter weather, digital display time, gears, odometer came back. I assume water inside dash just needed time to evaporate. Sure beats $1000 to replace unit inside dash!

No A/C, no odometer, no speedometer, ABS light...blown 10 amp fus


I had this same problem a few years ago. Got to the point that the dealer just gave me a box of fuses to replace when it blew. They could not find the source nor could they replicate the situation in house. The 99 Windstar had a recall somewhere in the breaking system-- and leaks could cause a short in the electrical system. Once that repair was made, I never had the problem again. I like to think my constant complaining (car was still under warranty at the time) allowed corporate to make the connection. Look for the recall code.
