I have an 06 f350 6.uh oh diesel and have the same problem. Pull off the part of the dash board that only clips in... So you can access instrument cluster and 2 plugs ontop of speedometer and odometer... The 2 pluhs (usually the one over the speedometer) comes loose. Push the plug down with a decent amount of force and watch all ur electrical come back to life... I know this is not an answer to fix the problem, but will show you where the problem is ( I haven't fixed mine yet either) I've talked to a lot of people saying the new wiring harness is a few hundred.. Hope this helps

Daniel, you are the bomb. Read your post and went out in the parking lot at work and pulled my dash apart. Sure enough, I just touched the plug over my speedometer and shazam, everything came back on. Now to figure out how to keep it on. If you or anybody has any ideas on this, please share. Thanks.

Question. Same problem fix sounds pretty easy. Once you get a new cluster what do you do about mileage/odometer reading? Thanks

I have a 2003 F250 with 5.4 litre v8, and it has the same problems all of you describe. I am going to test all of the fuses inside the cab, then try removing and reinstalling the connections to the interior fuse panel, cleaning each one as I go. Then I will clean the connections inside the engine compartment against the firewall. I will post my results when I finish. Kevin in NY

Seems as though this is a common problem, my 06 f350 is having the same issues. From reading previous posts, the true remedy is unclear. It's it the cluster, or fuse box connection. Any info is appreciated?

I have a 2006 F350 and i have the same no radio,power windows,no cluster,then they come on for a short time.We should all get a LAWYER and class action sue FORD.This is Bull shit


I have the same problem as everyone else. Occasional loss of power to windows, radio, dome light and instrument cluster. In addition, when this happens the truck runs as if its not getting enough fuel, causing the check engine light to come on......Took it to the dealer and they replaced the instrument cluster. Two days later it happened again. They currently have it in their shop and said they will get back to me this afternoon. I will keep you posted! THIS SUX

I just fixed the same issue with no power to the Instrument Cluster, Power Windows, Radio and dome lights. F-21 was blown. New fuse and everything works great.


Problem , intermittent - gauges would die, stereo, dome light , and windows wouldn't work ( bang on dash everything would work again) . Found problem inside gauge cluster in circuitry under top right plug . To fix replace gauge cluster ( Ford dealer approx.$450 parts + removal and install and programming )
