    When I bought the truck the lightbulb for the gas gauge and the speedometer was out. A last week I replace them and after that I started having weird problems with my instrument cluster. The engine light or the traction control light would come on and tell me there's a problem but everything else works fine. It didn't seem to affect the truck. I could just turn off the engine turn it back on and be back to normal. That went on for about a 3 days. Then everything was fine. Well this morning I noticed that the tach has stopped working. Checked all the fuses checked everything I could think of. I'm not sure why it stopped working.

    A weak battery can cause electrical gremlins in the '01 to '05 Tracs'
    I would go back and check your cluster connectors. If all this started after bulb replacement. Also make sure the bulbs were correct. There could be a resistance problem with a wrong bulb.
