greetings,

More than likely it will be a bad solder joint in the cluster. Very common issues with ford/Lincoln instrument clusters. The dealer sends them out for repair. If you are handy you can remove it and send it out yourself. I have used a few repair companies off e-bay for module repair that is similar to what you have. Prices are great and repairs worked great.

we can test the dimmer (if you have a multi meter)to be sure but most likely it is the cluster

I see the cluster repair for under 100$ off e-bay and the dimmer goes for under 70$ aftermarket parts. If you remove the cluster and disassemble you may find the bad soldering joint

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
