A few questions .......

For starters ..... when my battery was dying on me, I never got a "low voltage " light or anything.is that normal?

Second would be is there any cluster swap out there that allows me to have a voltage gauge and a Oil pressure gauge?

and last ....... with my dads F-150 when you unlock the doors the headlights pop on, has anyone ever done that on a ranger??

Thanks

My battery light came on as soon as my alternator quit on me

I think you will have to add the oil pressure gauge


The lights turn on when I unlock my doors from factory

My fog lights flash when I unlock the door. When I remote start it, the fog lights come on and stay on

My 2001 Edge has alt, oil pressure and temp gauges. Lights come on inside when I unlock with factory remote. If I leave the lights on it beeps if I leave the keys in the ignition it beeps and when I exit the interior light stays on until I lock the vehicle or will stay on if I don't close all the doors .
Damn thing is annoying trying to figure out what I didn't do some times.
