If I continued to bang on it the ac would shut off again. Since it was not under warranty why should i pay more for something that should have been covered in the fiorst place! Due to the instrument panel being a vital measuring device for the operator this becomes a significant safety and concern for all consumers who are on roads where these vehicles are used not just the owners. When it blows hot air the passinger side will continue to blow cold. At this point you should see where each thing should pretty much plug in. If the ground wire breaks inside this loom you will have … the same problem.
I had some things bouncing around back there and they must have hit that panel. Is it possible to do the work myself or get better to take it to a shop? Ignore that it says Ford Truck as these folks handle all cars and trucks. Brake lines rusted out and failed, with no warning at all. Now the speedometer shows going 110 while backing up and if passing a car it shows a decline in mph. It now happens every time I drive after dark and over 65mpr interstate travel. At this point you should see the cartridge looking panel that is your guage cluster, and the two bolts one on either side. The manufacturer agreed with the dealer.
Faulty culster: See my post below, you can google this and find this is a problem for a lot of 04 Trailbazer owners, even me. So after a few months and after the vehicle's warranty has expired the whole dashboard stops working. Only the power train is still under the 7yr 70k warranty. In order to go that their should be a tension puller on the front that a simple rachet and socket will do. If that corrects it, but it is only temporary, you more than likely have an actuator that is overtraveling. En route to the appt, the speedometer was off by 10-15mph compared to the Garmin reading.
They all had issues one or another. The number I called was 800 222-1020 and filed a complaint. I had disconnected it once, I forgot why But anyways, it may be br … oken, or just loose. The entire front of the dash is one piece from the vent on the driver's side to the cup holder in the center of the vehicle. Searched internet and learned of other owners with same problem. If it appears secure then check under the vehicle to see if it is broken or come loose from the the gearbox. This appears to be a known defect for model years 2003-2007.
By the time it became really annoying, I had 75,000 miles on it of course. If it doesn't have tension pulley then the alternator has a bolt that you lossen it to get the belt off. If I trade it or keep it. I have had a 96 Taurus since 97. Hook the can up which comes supplied with a hose and press away.
Look along the left side of the panel, where the door would cover when closed. If you don't have the manual, open your driver's-side door and look under the dashboard---sometimes these are covered by a panel on the underside of the steering wheel. The vehicle has not been repaired. Mine started at 114000 miles and if you turn it off and turn it back on … - it will start blowing cold again. I didn't open the panel, so I don't know what is in there. Looks like at my expense.
While driving 10 mph, the speedometer displayed 60 mph. Follow the upper radiator hose to the intake manifold. My speedometer was reading a lot faster than I was going, for exam … ple it said 120mph when I was going about 10mph. The oil gauge is also turned downward where you can't tell if you are between 10 and 40 on the oil gauge and I wanted to know what the cause could be for those gauges no longer working the way it use to? Is it digital, or analog needles and numbers on plastic rolls If it is the needle version, you may have a cable the runs up the back of the speedo cluster from the transmission. Then you will need to lossen the belt off the enginge.
I want a product of value and a company that will stand by its product. This is only the next in a line of issues with this vehicle. It's now been a few days and the speedometer isn't working correctly at all. There is a clicking sound within the instrument panel continuously. Doubt I will own another.
