Dear customer, did they perform a diagnostic on your transit?if so, could you share the error codes with me please.
I understand dear customer, Pity that they could not observe your Ford Transit in the garage because through a diagnostic equipment without having to disassemble the dashboard, they could have done an actuator test to be able to observe that all the dashboard indicators work correctly directly from diagnostic equipment.As you had to disassemble the dashboard to take an external review is very likely that your failures originate the signals that the computer imparts or in the wiring that goes from the computer to the dashboard basically the failure is being presented purely electrical or electronic
The first thing you should do is to trace the dashboard again and verify the wiring and connections that arrive through the rear area of the dashboard if everything is visually correct, we must use an electronic tester or multimeter to verify pin by pin, you need to find where the signal is isolated, where it does not mark these testers, you can also use a simple lamp current tester.
When you locate where the signal is being carried you will follow that wiring from the connector until it arrives at the computer and if it does not have any defect you will have to send to verify the ECU, you can directly take the computer a review and save you everything this work, but it is better proceed in this way.
Have you understood me dear customer?
