The display blacks out but will occasionally come on. Is there a quick fix or must I replace the whole unit?
Ford has proven that it builds a good truck, but the manufacturing process of circuit boards and soldering is not their strong suit.

Take the console down and have a look at all of the solder joints. If you find one that doesn't look 'quite right' touch it up with a little solder and see if your problems have gone away!

I'm driving Ford Ranger 3.2XLT 2013. I had my odometer blackout few days ago, it came back on and off many times, and it getting worse now. Even after I pulled out my key from the ignition, i still can turn on my radio. Sometime it came back normal for a few minutes then blackout again. What could be the problem, anyone experiencing this problem.?

as for the odometer, I'd say to look over this thread about re-soldering the connections; as for the radio coming on after the key's removed, That sounds like a loose/bad ignition cylinder or something to me, but I'm no mechanic.
If you can turn the ignition cylinder without the key that is probably why the radio can come on with the key out, That could also potentially lead to a dead battery if not careful.
2013 is rather new, I'd be curious as to why the cylinder went bad, if it indeed did. is it a fleet vehicle (or ex-fleet) that is started and such ALOT throughout the day putting wear on the cylinder or a personal vehicle that is maybe 5-6 times a day?

somehow I think the ignition is related to the odometer blackout. The alarm notification is flickering like I already lock the car. There's a time when i turn off my A/C, it came back on for a while. I tried to look for loose solder connection, but cant find any on the instrument cluster.
