Sounds like your on the right track with a poor connection somewhere. Had a guy with a similar problem with cluster and this is what he found.
"the fault was in the wiring loom in the engine bay between the fuse box and
the firewall (about 18 in) the hood release cable had been
rubbing and shorted the wires. I moved the cable out of the
way repaired the wires and everything is now happy "

2004 ford explorer engine trouble light wiring diagram

The trouble light is in the instrument cluster.behind dash gauges.,BE SURE TO DISCONNECT BATTERY BEFORE REMOVING ANY PART OF DASH..Use safety glasses.,The cluster is attached to the back of gauges..Be VERY CAREFUL If you remove it ..Very Fragile and easy to damage..!!....Older vehicles have a more simple cluster with bulbs that can be replaced or removed..Or leave out and never have a trouble light again..I doubt if your vehicle has a simple bulb however it is possible...If you just wanted the light to go off forever there is a chance you could remove the cluster and it will have a simple small removable bulb..I would ask a Dealer Tech....The cluster is like a map or a weird racetrack..lights for each instrument are located on the pathway...You may could crush the tiny area where light is if it doesn't have a bulb that can be removed but it may interfere with other lights on the cluster pathway or perhaps DISABLE THE COMPLETE CLUSTER..I DONT RECOMMEND CRUSHING ANY PART OF CLUSTER.!!,,However I have seen it done..Some lights are made into the pathway and can't be removed and some are just removable bulbs..Your vehicle could have both type pending on location of your problem light..I have seen many replaceable bulbs located at the bottom of instrument clusters on Heavy Ford Trucks.., however the center lights cant be replaced..Especially if it is all digital..!!..Look for a close up photo of the rear of your instrument cluster on a computer and you will see what I am describing...You may just have a very small plug in bulb..It may be a good idea to ask a Dealership Tech.....Good Luck...

I replaced my instrument cluster with a used cluster (BMW X5, 03') the brake lights are all on now. How do I match the new cluster with my X5?

The lights are all on because of a loss of power. If you test drive the car, once you reach 15 mph, the lights should reset. Matching the cluster will set the odometer to the CPU odometer (actual miles).

How to replace the dashboard bulb in a 1999 plymouth voyager

Which light is out? Is it an instrument cluster light, or one on the temperature or A/C cluster? It it's an instrument cluster light, here is the process: (I'm assuming the 99 is similar to the 98) Remove the bottom dash panel under the steering wheel, remove the instrument cluster cover around the steering column. This will reveal the screws that hold your instrument cluster cover in place. Remove this cover and you can then see and remove the 4 screws holding your instrument cluster in place. Pull your instrument cluster out, remove the main wire connector, then you have access to all the instrument cluster lights on the back side. Hopefully you remember which one is out!

BMW Z3 '97 speedometer light out how do I replace it?....thank you

if you are referring to the back light in the cluster, there are several 'Christmas' lights in the cluster. you can access this by removing the cluster which isn't too technical. how ever i like to remove the steering wheel as this makes it easier. you will need T-30 Torx driver. and a 23mm 1/2' socket. to remove the steering wheel. then its a few screws (cross or Philips which ever you prefer) and a couple of connectors and you can pull out the cluster to see which style bulb it is. usually there are 1-2 types of bulbs in there clusters.

Keep in mind there are 2 screws in the top of the trim around the cluster and 2 in the op of the cluster itself. there are 2 screws in the bottom of the trim and the cluster as well. if you do not remove the steering wheel it is quite a task removing the cluster but it is possible.

Dash board is digital and the dash lights went out seeking information on how to remove the dash board console 1993 chevy blazer tahoe LT

Remove the 5 mounting screws from the instrument cluster trim plate and remove the trim plate. Remove the 4 mounting screws from the instrument panel face plate and remove the face plate.Remove the instrument light grid from the center of the cluster. From behind the instrument cluster reach behind the speedometer and disconnect the speedometer cable by releasing the tab. Pull the cluster forward just enough to detach the "check engine" light bulb from the center of the cluster. Remove the instrument cluster from the dashboard.

My dash lights are not lighting up and the fules is not burn out

Is it only a few in the dash? Around or in the gauge cluster?

If they are in the cluster than you have to remove the whole gauge cluster, it comes out as a whole unit, the bulb accesses are in the back of the cluster, they usually twist out.

Sometimes the trim around the cluster will usually pop out, only connected by spring clips. Some are connected with screws and may have plastic caps covering them. Once you remove the trim, the cluster is screwed in and you should see them around the periphery of the cluster.

If every single light went out all at once, it seems like it would be more of a fuse, or bad wiring to the dash.

A poor connection at the self docking connections of the cluster. Remove the trim across the top of the intrument panel. Remove the screws at the top of the cluster trim and remove the trim. Remove the cluster screws and cluster. Apply dielectric grease to the self docking connectors of the cluster and reinstall. This should take care of it.
