    Default Pressing question on a Ford Van

    Got a question for you good people with knowledge of vans.

    It is an E150 Ford 02, 6 cyclinder, with all gauges suddenly, not working.
    Possible causes?

    It is a Ford ?.

    Fix Or Repair Daily, It is operating normally.

    LOL.


    Ground to dashboard controls, Blown F150 fuse.

    Actually, I agree with the Fix or repair daily, because I had a ford taurus which was so horrible. No matter what we did with the starter, replaced it several times, then a recall on it, used to be, I had to carry a rubber mallet and carry it, rap on it, if I shut the car off my " mistake." You left it running, at all times, lol. going thru the drive thru anywhere, bank, fast food, etc. I was glad we donated it... yes, we donated it.

    But, his van has been good until, now. I said, maybe a fuse, he said, no, not a fuse. You sure about this Don?

    I got a wager on it, lol.

    If it is not a fuse then I would check the ground going to Instrument cluster.

    Check the ground connection near the battery.

    It would almost have to be a ground problem, for it to be affecting all the gauges.

    He may want to verify 12Volts is making it to the Instrument cluster.

    Thank you Don. I checked with him, and he said, their's no fuse, so, it must be something else. Sometimes, I think, a Clysdale might be a good idea, like my friend in NZ wants for transportation, lol.

    There is a fuse, Everything is fused.

    I guess it just is not blown.

    The Ford F150 dash is known for bad solder connections. They may have the same problem on the E150.


    I own 2 Fords and they keep me busy.
