Similarly one may ask, how do I reset my Ford instrument cluster?

Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock. Leave it in the 0 or I position. Push and hold the Sel/Reset knob (on the instrument panel by the fuel gauge), or the Sel/reset button on the right hand of the steering wheel below the Multi-Information Display Info button.

Secondly, is there a fuse for the instrument cluster? The fuse may be labeled gauges, cluster, or something similar. This fuse should have power on both sides with the ignition in the on position. If the fuses check out okay, then check for power at the instrument cluster. If the instrument cluster has power, then check for ground.

In respect to this, what causes gas gauge to stop working?

The most common gauge problems are either a bad ground at the tank, or a sender problem. If you DO have 12 volts to the fuel gauge, the next step is to remove the fuel sending unit wire, and, with the ignition key “on”, ground the sender wire to a good chassis ground. The fuel gauge should immediately go to empty.

How do I know if my instrument cluster is bad?

Usually a faulty instrument voltage regulator will produce a few symptoms that can alert the driver of a potential issue.
