You have the same problem I have with my 2002 Windstar. The dash failure was cause by the brake fluid which had leaked down your wiring harness cause by a defective brake switch on the master cylinder which leaked fluid into the harness and down to the fuse block which cause numerous Windstars to burn up. This recall on you vehicle I sure was completed, but Ford gave no consideration to the damage and amount of fluid which was already trapped in wiring loom. As I stated, I had exact same problem and could even smell the burning fluid in the fuse block. I dis-assembled my fuse panel, cleaned it up and have purchase a used dash and am installing it today and it goes to garage for Ford to reprogram later this week. Hope this helps. Ford should have covered our vehicles, but I was unable to get anywhere with it. If you have better luck, please let me know.
