Why does it start, then shuts back off?


IF you have recently changed the gauge cluster then the 'security' or 'anti theft' needs to recognize the new cluster. The system will need to be reset.

It's been a few years but if I remember correctly you need to turn the key on, then off 3 times, then turn the key to the on position and leave it there for 10 minutes. Then turn the key off for a few seconds. After that, the vehicle SHOULD start and stay running.

If the gauge cluster hasn't been changed then I really don't have an answer.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

DASHBOARD LIGHT WONT WORK 63 MERCURY MONTEREY BREEZWAY


You probably need to pull the instrument cluster out and replace the illumination bulbs from the backside of the instrument cluster. All the bulbs back there are likely all the same ( your illumination and warning bulbs), so change them all. Happy motoring!
How to get the cluster out? Look for screws to remove. Get any bezel or trim plates out of the way. Check for screws again, cluster should pull out a few inches, then reach behind and unclip the speedo cable from back of cluster, then pull off the electrical plug from back of cluster. Now should be able to remove the cluster. Hopefully your steering wheel will allow cluster to be removed, but if not, take off the steering wheel's center nut, the pull off the steering wheel-sometimes a steering wheel puller is required-an inexpensive tool available at parts store.

Of course, before doing all this, check for a blown instrument panel fuse-something like instr. lmps, or instr pnl designation.
Good luck.

I PUT IN A USED CLUSTER AND WONT START 2001 LINCOLN LS V-8


The key(s) may need to be reprogramed to the ignition. Car security issue I think, from what you are saying.

The gage cluster


Had the same problem on my wife's 1999 Cherokee.  I had to take the entire left side of the dash off to get the instrument cluster out.  You need to unplug it and clean the plug and the instrument cluster itself off and then put everything back together.  Worked for me and haven't had a problems since.  One note: the headlight switch has to be taken off and it's kinda hard.  You have to get up underneath it and  there is a clip that has to be pinched in order for you to pull the switch off.  Hope this helps because I know what a pain it is!

Lights that wont go away: Trac Off, ABS, Oil Change, Service Vehicle soon


Sorry tina , but you are going to need a new "cluster assembly" most likely.The cluster assembly is the dash instrument panel with all the gauges behind the clear lens. As an ex-pontiac technician of 13 years , pretty much every one of these with more than one light remaining on after start-up is going to need an "exchange" cluster. What the G.M. dealer does is removes the cluster from the car and "swaps" it with another one that has been refurbished-not always do they have a local authorized repair source though. I know the going exchange rate on these units is about $250.00. Hopefully they don't mark it up too much from there. I recommend you have it professionally checked out and diagnosed as you could also have an ABS code which could illuminate the trac off , abs light and check engine light simultaneously. Good luck..............Scott
