    I have a 2005 Sport Trac I believe it was under water before I bought it though the guy I bought it from never said anything. Anyways the instrument cluster started acting up first with the fuel gauge, then the odometer and others. Now my radio goes off when I hit bumps. I changed the instrument cluster but still does same thing and just says low fuel instead of how many miles I have drove

    Start pulling the bulkhead wire Connectors apart and look for water or oxidation and corrosion clean them up with detox cleaner and put some dialectic grease in there

    Common problem.....Needs to be sent to a repair place.... Google Circuit Board Medics. They are used by everyone.
