2003 ford f150 supercrew lariat. Odometer is all dashes. All lights headlight tail lights park lights are all on even with switch off and keys out. Horn won't blow. Engine will turn over but not crank.

Engine will turn over but not crank.???? Engine cranks but won't start an run .
The instrument cluster receives odometer rolling count status from the PCM and stores the mileage in non-volatile memory (NVM). When the instrument cluster fails to receive the odometer rolling count status for more than two seconds, the odometer display will show dashes.

B2143 Odometer NVM Memory Failure Instrument Cluster INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Instrument Cluster in this section. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Taking the vehicle an having it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes would be a good idea ! Not to autozone or advance etc... Need a professional or factory scanner to check for these codes .

All my dash lights are on and no odometer

car runs? and moves?
headlights work (full bright not dim) all lights work.
you key on, and the warning lights glow, and the CEL lamp too.
that is first.
then the odometer
no OD
means what ( blank, stuck, wont roll if mechancal?)
the odometer must work on all cars if the speedo works
so does speedo work?

ill look up the system now, varies by year.
first off , all answers USA cars on this USA forum.
cant do others. ever.
omg its GM car, in sheep skins...
what engine, you do know systems vary by ENGINE. in car.
ill guess. now.
4.3L engine
the ECU has a 2 wire connection to the VSS sensor (speed)
so that means the ECU sees all speeds and sends those to the
cluster and odometer.
it uses 2 wires to the cluster to talk.

the first wise step on all cars is to check fuses.
then scan the OBD2 port
if the scan shows VSS dead, it is. P0502 or P0503?
end story, fix VSS, (replace it or clean it)
if no errors with VSS and speedo works (do says so.....?????_)
then the odometer is messed up. (not good that)

the books says if any part of cluster is bad. the whole cluster must be changed out.
but fails to say, (bad) that if MPH and ODOMETER
are dead., the VSS is bad. and the scan tool told you that.
all scan tools sold work here,
why not scan it first like we all do.....(never work blinds)

I have a 2007 chevy tahoe and the "PRNDL" is completly gone and the Odometer is barely visable...Any ideas on how to fix this?

{: ) Check the ISLAMPS fuse 10amp at the IP fuseblock. If okay, check the operation of the instrument panel brightness control switch. It is that small protruded knob beside the main headlight switch. If all instrument (dashboard) backlightings respond normally as you adjust the intensity, and these two you mentioned are the only issues, you may need to replace the IP cluster. It will be replaced with a later model cluster and will need to be programmed.

The car gauges for the odometer, gas and temperature are not working, also when i put the directional signals some times they work some times they don't. Usually they don't work in mornings. other thing...

The brake light is a separate issue and is either a bad brake light switch or the switch is out of adjustment. The instrument cluster is a known problem and can be a broken solder joint or a bad ground connection inside the negative battery terminal. Do a search for caravan instrument cluster and you'll find lots of info

Brake light just stopped working, they turn on when i turn on my headlight , just wont light up when i brake.

You need to replace the Brake Light Switch which is located on the upper brake pedal arm inside your car. You can replace it yourself, just unplug it from the wiring harness, remove and replace.

How do I replace the headlight switch in a 1985 ford f150 xlt

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Depending on the year and model remove the wiper/washer and fog lamp switch knob if they will interfere with the headlight switch knob removal. Check the switch body (behind dash, see Step 3) for a release button. Press in on the button and remove the knob and shaft assembly. If not equipped with a release button, a hook tool may be necessary for knob removal.
  3. Remove the steering column shrouds and cluster panel finish panel if they interfere with the required clearance for working behind the dash.
  4. Unscrew the switch mounting nut from the front of the dash. Remove the switch from the back of the dash and disconnect the wiring harness.
  5. Install in reverse order.
Good luck.....

is it a digital odometer or a mechanical one? If it is a digital odometer I would start by checking the fuses.
