2006 F250 (V10) instrument cluster problem

Hey y'all...

Still have my trusty truck. However the instrument cluster, windows, radio shut down periodically. Truck runs fine other than that - 150k on the odometer.... any input on a fix?

Thanks...

Thanks. Yes, those are fine. The truck starts, functions perfectly. When going down the road the only the radio, instrument cluster, windows will not work periodically. A/C, cruise control, wipers, etc still work great.

However after some additional research I did find -

When I get the treatment done - may take a month before i can since i need my truck daily I will let y'all know.

Oy! Been a spell but just wanted to get back that the Circuit Board Doctors did great work - opted for the LED back lighting upgrade and it's a winner.

My truck is now 170k old. She still runs well, but alas being in Michigan she is getting the rust. The engine and tranny have been fantastic over the years and all I have had to do to the truck so far is replace the battery (twice), alternator, front U-joint bearings, tie rod, TPS (throttle position sensor), and rear diff gasket. If I had to go back in time and buy this truck again I would.

Now the sad news - I may be looking at purchasing an F-150 5.0 in about 6 months - don't need the capability anymore (the farm land that I would help with loads is sold) , would like a smoother ride, would like a warranty again (purchased the 10yr/100k on this truck) and am interested in *gasp*...more of the neat latest gadgetry dash and such. Will keep y'all in th eloop and while it's on my mind want to thank you for the early years with my truck. This is a great group.

If it were mine, I'd get the rust fixed, unless it's frame rot.

I know... lol

At the current rate I'm going, I'll make my '07 Jeep Compass last for a million miles and my F150 last till I'm pushing up the daisies... haha
