    I have the same problem in my 1999 Ford Diesel. I took the whole console apart and found that a contact inside the crystal display is not connected anymore. There is no way to get inside of it to repair it either. The whole unit costs about $400 dollars depending on the dealer.

    There was a listing on Ebay of a repair service for about half of the dealer cost. You must send in you old unit there is no exchange, repair only.

    I think you have the same problem I had. Apparently the little circuits get hot and pop. I took apart and could easily see how certain ones popped off at one end. I bought 5.00 dollar sodder gun at autozone and that was it. Has lasted two years now.

    Mine quit working also. Bought a solder gun...and fixed it myself. BEWARE, when you pull the console, watch for loose parts, the transistors are very small !

    Just fixed mine as well. Got out the solder gun and soldered 3 little resisters that were pointing up. Took me 15 min to fix. Works great now. Glad I saw this post.

    found a web site that will sell just the display, new doors, or whole unit for a third of what anyone else wants for it. the site is called www.newfordtruckparts.com/
