Question about 1989 Ford F 150
My 89 F150 has a 5 spd manual OD tranny. Ammeter, Oil Pressure Gauge, and Temp gauge either are not working or working erracticly. Could anyone tell me exactly how to remove the whole cluster? I removed screws above and below but cannot seem to get it pulled out far enough to unhook wires & cables on back. Thank You firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the gauges are on the same fuse as the dome light; check the fuses. The other main source of gauge problems for this vintage F150 is the sending units and I don't use the term sending unit lightly, so when you go to the parts store make sure you say you are looking for sending units not sensors (sensors hook to the computer) sending units are of 2 types for this vintage F150, lights and guages you need the ones for gauges, the oil sending unit is about 4 dollars and the coolant temp sending unit for a guage is about the same.
I have 4 fords and you will come to understand that the wiring is a jury rig, all this come out when they are the age of your 1989 PU.
