Hi just had a chat with the local Ford dealer and apparently fors has agreed to replace the faulty instrument cluster for a flat fee of £95.00 but it is a one off and if the problem is not fixed then it must be the sender unit from the gearbox which you would have to get replaced which he said would cost approx £285.00 .

Speedometer problems


Have the road wheels or tyres been changed from the original manufacturer's specification? If they have been changed for larger (or smaller) diameter wheels this would necessarily alter the vehicle's speedo veracity! This seems the most likely cause of errors in speedo readings. If this is NOT the case, then it sounds like a speedo fault. Best of luck!

Ford fiesta registered yr 2000. speedometer stopped working, it flicked up and down then no movement at all. how can I repair it?


hi this is a common fault on the focus its usally a faulty speedo sensor that is fitted in the gearbox
if you open the bonnet and look bettween the engine and gearbox and towards the firewall/bulkhead
you will see the speedo sensor held in with a small steel roll pin remove the roll pin and pull the sensor out and dissconnect the wires to it and peplace it with a new sensor ,a healthy dose of wd40 penetrating spray will help to get the sensor out

I have a Ford Focus Model 2000 and switch the motor to 2004, the problem lies in the speedometer always stop and sometimes works


look on top of the differential unit passenger side and this is where the sensor is for the speedo and i think that either the connections for the wiring connector is dirty or most likely the plastic drive spindle is worn and not turning the sensor .

I have a 54 plate ford focus and when im driving along my speedo jumps from 60/70 to 0 mph and back again whats the problem/


Could be the sensor in the transmission (which detects the speed based on ratios) not sending the correct information, the computer malfunctioning or the instrument cluster itself. You'll need to take your vehicle by a shop that has a Fault Code reader to find out if there are any fault codes which would better indicate what the exact problem is. If you have an Advance Auto Parts store nearby, they'll do this free of charge.

My son's FORD PUMA has a broken speedometer.


Your piece on a similar problem with a speed sensor on the gearbox of a Ford Focus solved te problem. The AA did not have a replacement sensor but advised, you could check your speed using a sat nav.
The dealer who supplied the car, Thrapston Ford, have agreed to supply & fit the part free of charge.

Problem with speedometer for ford focus tdci reg03


This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.
