For years, the backlighting for the instrument gauge cluster in Kirk’s 2006 Jack Roush-edition Mustang would only work intermittently. In fact, sometimes Kirk could see how fast he was going at night and sometimes he couldn’t. Eventually, the mustang gauge lighting went out all together and Kirk could no longer drive his Mustang safely at night.
So Kirk, an Edinboro, PA, resident, called and spoke with Doug Reichert. after that, Doug arranged for Kirk to drop the vehicle off at the shop and leave it for a few days. Kirk needed the mustang gauge cluster repair to be done.
Mustang Gauge Cluster Needed a Discontinued Part
The Jack Roush-edition Mustang came from Ford with a specialty instrument cluster. In detail, it has red needles, black numbers and a green “indiglo” back lighting. MECP-certified technician Art Dougan carefully removed the cluster. Once it was out of the vehicle, Art was able to disassemble it and trace the issue to a defective lighting part on the backside of the instrument cluster. This part is not available from Ford any longer, so ENORMIS had to go on the “hunt.”
Doug was able to find the OE manufacturer that produced the rare part for Ford. Doug contacted the company and was able have the cluster repaired with the new part. Within a week, Kirk had his car back and can now drive safely on those hot summer nights with his Mustang gauge cluster repair complete!
