Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Bulb Test- No Abs Light

  1. Hi,
    I did the Instrument cluster diagnostic test when it comes to the bulb test I don't the ABS light come on. I do see it when I start the car. I'm beginning to wonder if something IS wrong with my cluster for sure. I had the odometer fade when I pull the lights on and the fuel needle drop a little bet more than it should. I may take it out check for cold solder joints and calibrate it. Is anyone else not seeing the ABS either? Thanks .
  2. Does your car have ABS. Not all mustangs were equipped.

    If your car did not come with ABS, then the bulb will not illuminate when you start the car.

    If it does have ABS...bulb is prob burned out
  3. No it's there when I start the car, That's why I was like, "IS it supposed to be there? I think so it's a bulb test!" I'm trying another gauge today hopefully just too see it does. Then I did the test for fun (Seems like my mind thinks I'm going to find a magic thing in there Lol) and this time it says "none" (DTC) when it always gave that code for the oil pressure regulator. I think the thing must be only good for the tach or speedometer or maybe battery voltage. Too bad it's not like my old Dodge Daytona, It's onboard diagnostics were pretty good. Oh well, You can't have everything.
  4. Tried a 2000 cluster and it showed the ABS. Ofcourse I knew the car wouldn't start because of the theft protection. I just wanted to see what would happen. The 2000's fuel gauge is slightly different and I think it gave slightly a better reading than my own. I think I'll try calibrating the other one and check the solder joints when I can. If I fix it I'll sell the other for 40 bucks on ebay. That's what I payed.
