inxtrument cluster problems
hey all, im new to this site as well as to my ranger. needless to say, I LOVE IT! haha. i have an 04 4x4 with the 4.0l v6 and auto tranny. so far, its been a great trcuk, only have had it maybe a month or two though.
so here's whats going on and it has me annoyed and worried all the same time. The instrument cluster doesnt work. no speedo, no gas gauge, no water temp and no tach. only idiot light that works is the security light that flashes when the car is turned off.
its started intermittenly, just randomly would cut out but would come back on right away, and only would do it when i would first fire up the car. now it cuts out all the time and its rare when it does work.
i was thinking maybe a short or something, but havent checked yet, was seeing if i could get any ideas before i ripped apart the dash getting to the thing later this week/weekend. any help would be muchly appreciated!
(also, i apalogize for typos or bad grammer, im on my phone and its a bitch to do this, but as its my computer also, oh well...)
