F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,397 miles
Instrument cluster completely failed without warning. Brought to two dealerships who advised that part was not available due to nationwide issue and offered no eta on part availability. Advised not to drive vehicle. Company truck is only slightly over one year old (10 days) and is still under dealer warrantly. Spoke with nationwide customer representatives who have denied problem with cluster exists despite order backlog and have been told nothing can be done. Spoke with manufacturer(electra-sound) who advised part not made for months and no eta on when manufacturing will begin. No resolution from Ford. Investigation of instrument clusters on Ford 500's noted.

Instrument cluster has a short. Part cost will be $500. Plus labor. This means cluster will start a fire. Eventually. Right now the dash is intermittent. Sometimes there is no speedometer, ac, engine temperature, cruise control, oil pressure, fan, defrost. These go on and off while driving. Since truck is only one year old, this means Ford wants you to pay up to a thousand dollars a year for an instrument cluster. This should be a recall.

Instrument panel goes off and on. Took to dealer for recall on this problem #06C11. 24 hours later truck dash still intermittent. No odometer reading at all now. Speedometer, ac, cruise control, tachometer and water temperature gauge go off and on while driving. Time length random. Very disconcerting not to know how fast you are driving. Problem is increasing-anywhere from 1 to 5 times in an hour of driving.

F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,500 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Ford F-150. The vehicle was purchased with only 30 miles. The contact asked the dealer prior to purchasing the vehicle if there were any related recalls and was advised that there were none. The contact received recall notice 06C11 on April 7, 2007 stating that the instrument cluster calibration had not been repaired. The manager confirmed that they were aware of the recall notice five months prior to the purchase. However, was not advised to schedule an appointment for the repairs. Also, the dealer stated that the module behind the dash was faulty. The contact stated that cruise control was near the related recall component and could catch on fire. On two prior occasions during an oil change the dealer indicated the incorrect mileage. This could potentially affect the vehicle's warranty, and indicate that the contact has exceeded the allotted mileage for the next oil change. The current and failure mileage were 10,500.
