Re: Ford XF Instrument Cluster

these dashes are CRAP.. i've got an XF and it came with a GL cluster which had a broken trip and odometer. i then got another one from the wreckers which worked fine. Then i upgraded (or so i thought) to a Spack cluster but the tacho was sticky and the LCD bits just turned off for no reason at random times. Then i got a ZL cluster which is full LCD (star wars dash as my mate calls it) and it just goes spastic at least once a day. It just lights up random bars everywhere. the solution is to punch it really hard and it actually works :D good thing is that it doesnt loose its memory. i'm just gonna live with it until i get my 351 XD with the good tacho + speedo cluster that they come with, no LCD crap there :D

Re: Ford XF Instrument Cluster

Probably the speedo transducer which is in the side of the gearbox with the speedo gear attached to it.Is a small box with a cpl of wires running from it to a plug about 10 inches from it. Either get one from a wrecker or better a newie from Ford or another auto parts supplier. Safer when installing it to disconnect the negative lead of the battery as they are easy to short out otherwise
