It may be just blown bulbs. I had the same problem when I got my truck even with the cruise pod. I replaced the bulbs in the cluster and swapped the cruise pod from a junked ranger and it all works now. The bulbs can be found at any autoparts store, dont bother going to the dealership

Here is the how to for replacing the bulbs http://www.fordrangerforum.com/inter...placement.html

Thanks I was thinking it was the bulbs but them when I noticed that the cruise lights were out I thought that it might be something more

on my cruise pod lights if I tap them they come on so when they go off I just tap on them again seems to work till I fix the loose connection.

so might want to tap on the cruise pods
