Talking You can do it...

I didn't even know how to pronounce "soldering" iron when I tried it. But for $6 to get the iron and solder, it was well worth it. Unscrew about 15 screws on the dash, 8 on the instrument panel itself, and you're done. Don't be afraid...this site can save you a ton of $$ and make you proud of youself each time you get in the truck!
Good luck!

I own a 1992 Ford Aerostar with a fully digital cluster, and I am having problems with having to reset the car by removing the battery to keep my guages fully working. If I don't do that, then the dash will blackout for a second, then when it comes back on, things look like they have went crazy. The speedometer and all other guages quit working, and the odometer reads error. Could a cold solder have anything to do with it? I took the cluster out and used a spray air cleaner and cleaned all of the wiring and pins, but, still have the same problem. I was told that it could be an in-dash voltage regulator, but, with many inquiries, I have never heard anyone speak of such a part.....

Oh well, maybe one of these days I can get it all fixed

Talking Alternative Speedometer / Odometer cure . . . . .

Back in January I bought a really sharp 97 F-150 large cab PU w/4.6 for $955. It was a company vehicle w/162k and a perfect body. The catch was that the tranny was going out and it had bad brakes. We limped it home . . .

After replacing the tranny with a 46k salvage yard box ($550 and 6 hours of sweat), and a 2 hour brake job, I had a pretty nice truck - or so I thought. While taking the tranny core back to the salvage yard, the speedo dies - I ask if I can take the old sending unit, and he says "yep".

I change the speedo drive and have no luck, then start trouble shooting the pulses - not easy. I then read your speedo repair article that night.

While driving to work the next morning, I slammed my fist down on the dash avove the speedometer -HARD!!!. The speedo starts working and has not quit again in 3500 miles.

I will take luck over brains anyday . . . .

Fixed

I too took the plunge and pulled the Dash and my friend and I corrected the solder joint.

The only heart attack we had is when we reassebled everything the Truck (2000 EB Expedition) would not start. It would crank and crank, but not start. Pulled the dash again, and I believe the White ended cable (there is a white one and a black one on the back of the module) was not plugged all the way in, it came back off without me having to pinch the release clip. Once I secured all connections, everything worked just fine.

Thanks again to all

Well guess what, (They fryed my board) Located a cluster from a junk yard, Every thing works no blackout but when I installed in my truck NO START. Same year and model. I now know I have to clear the PATS, Can anybody tell me how to do that?
I really need help here.

You will have to have the dealer do a perameter reset and possibly reprogram the keys.

New cluster with clear PATS on eBay

To B2747:

There is a 1999-2002 Expedition instrument cluster with clear PATS for sale on eBay for $180 + $15 shipping. I was about to buy it for my '99 Expedition EB but I don't need it now that I know how to fix the odometer problem.

The auction ends July 9, 2005. I inquired about the item and whether the seller is a Ford dealer. Here is the reply I received:

"No, I am not a ford dealer. If I was I would charge you twice what I am asking for the cluster. You just need to have Two ignition keys that currently start your truck to do a simple procedure after you install cluster. Takes only a couple minutes and instructions are included. Mileage isn't a problem I just need to know the mileage before I would ship it out. I really have no need for the used cluster but if it is fixable I might be able to refund you a little. Thanks, Aaron"

Hi, Do you have any idea how to remove odometer from 2000 Expedition without breaking the panel?

Thanks

1Liter,

If you are asking how to get to the solder connections, you must carefully separate the mother board form the gauges. If you are talking about removing the odometer from the board, it is soldered on.

Add some more specifics and I'll try to help you out.

Tim

Question

Hey All-

New to the board, have a '99 F150 with this problem, going to use this info. to fix it.

Question: would it behoove me to do solder "touch ups" on the other points so as to avoid them eventually losing contact as well?

Thanks,
qdude
