Maybe plug n play, it's going to take some looking on your part. Someone else may know more, but in most cases, the main harness generally has all the plug ins, just not the devices. I'm sending a link with several parts of the wiring harness for the instrument cluster. If you can find the plugs in your van, it could be just a matter of getting the parts.

Re: 1999 windstar speedometer

just thought that i update this thread....

I get my message center + buttons to work ok... Just have to bought
those parts and find correct (4) wires to message center button 2 is for illumination and 2 is for signal ... =) And speedo swap needs to be done with ford ids ... I went to local ford service and they swapped speedo and updated computer software latest calibration... By now everything works.. But one issue i still have temperature has erratic reading... Thought that just have to buy front electronic module or program it again with ford ids...

speedometer holds lots of data ... including keys ...
