Anyone with a Ford Connection

My sister lives by herself in Palm Dessert, California and she bought a 2011 Ford Transit Van. It is doing some wacky sh** with her dash lights. They go off and at random blink. She bought the van as is and doesn't know an honest mechanic in Palm Dessert. It is obvious to me she has a ground short. This could be an expensive diagnosis and I'm wondering if there is a TSB or some factory support for this issue where it won't cost her to get it fixed. Anyone have an advocate at Ford that I could reach out to?

Re: Anyone with a Ford Connection

Although I don't have a Ford connection, a quick search shows this is a common problem. The fix is to remove the instrument cluster and either have it repaired or buy a used one.
