Looking for electrical help on a 2004 sport trac.
Intermittently, the whole interior key on electrical looses power, including the instrument cluster. Some of the time when it comes back on the instrument cluster goes into what I would call a diagnostic mode.

It also has a continuous battery draw that will kill a fresh battery in 2-3 days.

I do know some of the history on this vehicle, but the previous owner now has dementia, and even gets her kids mixed up. So not too much help there.

I am going to guess that the cluster is causing most of the issues, but I’m looking for other options or ideas where to start.

You may be on the right track. Instrument clusters control far more than they should. Design flaw.
