2010 Ford F-150 Electrical System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID794553
 Internal NHTSA #10335089
 Model Year2010
 File date12/05/10
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problem2010 ford f150 xlt pickup with automatic illumination/activation instrument cluster illumination lights on 3 occasions to date have failed to illuminate under low /no light outside conditions. The instrument cluster was not readable! No illumination lights. The vehicle also has a manual headlamp selection (3 positions) and even if the headlamp selector switch is turned to manual "on", the instrument cluster did not illuminate!..... This is a safety hazard! The next day everything worked fine except that the instrument cluster did not illuminate until it completely dark outside. Safety hazard!.... I cant read the instrument cluster under low light condition! I believe that the sensor that reads outside light conditions needs to be re-calibrated to a lower sensitivity, and that the vehicle should be reprogrammed so that when the driver manually selects for all lights to be activated that the instrument cluster should then go on!
