electronic cluster panel electric problem

65

Asked by Nov 23, 2014 at 06:26 PM about the 1987 Ford Thunderbird LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need some help on my cluster panel on my 87 tbird.  I don't have any illumination for the gauges, which work.  I have tried to purchase a refurbished one, online company sent not one but two wrong clusters.  Then I sent it off to be repaired, was returned but still no illumination even though an email showed everything was on.  So, it must be something in the dashboard wiring itself.  Has anyone ever had this problem before, and can you help?  Please, and thank you.

The dash light are on a fuse and are controlled by the headlight switch. Check the fuse first and then if it is good, start looking for loose, corroded, shorted wires from the headlight switch.
