Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
Can you go into more detail on all of your vehicle concerns. I would rather help you based on your vehicle rather than on another just in case a test result differs.
Here is what I got on your vehicle.
Yes I was hoping to fix this myself as I just bought the car on Saturday and this happened to me yesterday. Cashflow?? When I jiggled the light switch and switched to manual on the lights and radio worked again. But when this switch is set to automatic there appears to be a problem. The radio lights, radio power, and the odometer readout lights. The lights do appear Dimmer than they should be.
Is the concern the radio is inoperable or just the illumination lights on it?
Is the concern with the odometer just the brightness?
When having these issues with the headlights on manually or in auto does the dimmer switch have any effect?
Do you want to check on it for a while prior to me getting into diagnosing and answering?
Hello again Chris here,
