In my '04 Ford Sport Trac I am having some kind of electric issues inside. Things like the electric compass, the keyless entry buttons on the door, cruise control, and the oil and fuel gages do not work. It also will not allow a scan tool to connect to it. If you could give me some kind of idea what it could be i would appreciate it.

when there is a short anywhere on the computer system, scan tools won't work. So you have to find that short first, disconnect wiring one at a time until it connects, then fix that area FIRST
