Is there any way of locating the replacement MOV1? Iím sure Ford would prefer that I buy a brand new cluster instead of a 59 cent component.

I can just get one from the junkyard, but I really hate replacing a 19 year old electronic component with another 19 year old component.
Ford only gonna sell you the cluster, they wont sell you the MOV. was there any marking on either side of it? if you can get the markings off it , i can probably find you a replacement part **BUT** why it blow that part in the first place is the bigger question. MOV's generally dont blow apart like that without a reason.

My plan is to replace the god forsaken MOV1 with the fuse removed and then check for further electrical faults. I have seen MANY ECU components fail on older solid state vehicles by Chrysler, Ford and Harley Davidson. As soon as I complete the ground up rebuild of my 1961 Comet this 90,000 mile car is SOLD.

Turns out this seems to be a 2000 year model only component.

For any unfortunates who encounter this trouble in the future .
Here are the numbers for the gottforsaken MOV1 turd.
