Customer Question
Ron, I have a 94...
Ron, I have a 94 bronco XLT with a few oddities. Starting to think that it is mostly related to the cluster/psom. Periodic hard shifting, which always occurs at higher than normal rpm's. Tail lights that turn on sometimes an hour or so after car is parked. Failing gauges. Gauge problems seemed to begin after I changed all those bulbs. Any help you can give me would be great.

Forgot to mention, that there is also a repeating alarm that keeps going off randomly. It's not he obnoxious buzzer, not the open door sound.

What bulbs in particular have been replaced?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The various bulbs behind the speedometer, tachometer, etc. All but a few of those were blown. When I re-attached and put the dash back together, the battery gauge was no longer working. Then, the next evening the car wouldn't start. Thought it was the fuel pump. Filled the gas tank and then it started. Drove home. Drove the next morning. Hard shifting in all gears at approx 500 rpm's higher than normal into each gear. Left it on in park for about an hour. Came back out, was still running, but speedometer and odometer not working. Got it back home, and then it would not start again. Later that afternoon, the tail lights turned on for some reason.

The bulbs in the cluster are not always the same did you match your bulb numbers?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
