Now, how to get to it. All the instrument cluster removal videos show screws that allow removal of the bezel surrounding the instrument cluster. But mine has NO screws. So, what is the secret here? Thanks.

In a 1994 there are just the two screws at the ashtray

Then you can pull at the top of the cover where there are 2 clips that hold that part in

Google: 1994 ford ranger cluster led swap

Should be the first video

Thanks. What goes bad on that module? I heard it was a capacitor. Went to Advance, OReilley's and they looked at me like I was crazy. Another chain called Genuine, who's been around a long time, knew what one was but did not have any in stock nor could he get one.
Surprised someone has reversed engineered it and posted a schematic on this here web. Thanks all.

Pulled the module and the cap checked OK but I put a new one in anyway. Resoldered the circuit board. Now it doesn't pin FULL when I switch the key to run. But it still behaves strangely. I put $5 in and the gauge barely moved so now I'm thinking its the sender. Its 25 years old so I guess its time to be replaced. I've replaced just about everything on the truck. The only reason I keep it is that it doesn't require emissions anymore. I bought it new and have kept it going ever since.

You can by pass Slosh module, gauge just moves up and down a bit when cornering, i.e. when gas is sloshing in the gas tank

I don't think its the slosh module now.
What's the best fuel pump assy to buy? I see some on Ebay for as low as $40. I'll be changing it by myself and don't want to pull the bed more times than I have to.
I saw a video on Youtube of how a guy "walked " his bed back by himself by going from side to side.
Thanks.
