"ERROR" on the odomoter

I changed out the headlight/dash switch. When I turned it on the ERROR came up on the odomoter. (1993 Aerostar) Can I fix it or do I have to take it to Ford Service? Thanks for any advice

Check with www.autolibrary.org to see if they have anything on that.

Never heard of that when changing the dash switch.

Is the odometer reading in that van a digital one? If so the mileage could be redundantly stored in the headlight switch control unit and changing it could have triggered an odometer tampering warning....

The odometer is digital, but Ford stores the mileage in a chip within the instrument cluster assy.

Check your inst. panel connections & grounds. If they're all good, do as the service manual says & replace the inst. cluster. Your local Ford dealer can have your existing unit rebuilt or exchange it for a reman unit if you supply accurate mileage & proof of ownership.
