'07 CVPI Instrument Cluster (Non-digital gauges)

Asked by May 14, 2015 at 03:53 PM about the 2007 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2007 Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor -Has anyone with a CVPI experienced all the
gauges (non digital) crashing to "0" the going back up again? It seems arbitrary (I can't
make it happen) and they can stay down anywhere from 10 seconds to 15 minutes.  
Everything else still works.  I just can't tell:
1.  my MPH
2. RPM's
3. fuel in tank
4. engine temp

Also the digital odometer stopped coming on or its too dim to see.  This happened on
its own.  It doesn't seem to be part of the gauge issue.  Is there anything I can check
before pulling the dash?

Loose connections to the battery and lights can generate a discharge to these and others gauges. There are some recalls for this year. Check for these online. Check dimmer switch, cruise control stuck on or left on can cause system faults. Simple diagnostic with OBD11 will tell you the code to reset this. Relays cost a few dollars, fuses and fuse box cleanliness can cause problems. Other electrical can include wiring. There are simple tips only for specific problem available through Ford online. Last resort as this can cost.

Common problem with these instrument clusters. They can be repaired for both the intermittent gauges and odometer dark or very dim. Google mrwhizard for more info.
