Sometimes when the batery of vehicle goes flat or when u fit a new car batery to the bantams they love to give that problems like gauges not working rpm not working speedo not working and cluster display is dead, u disconect the batery termanils and for example fit positive termanil and arc. Or short til that blue spark occur then u swop around negative on and arc positive,leave the ignition switched on arc til gauges move!! Don't ask me why but that happend to me!

Had the same issue with a 2007 Ford ka 1.3 and Ford Bantam 2009 1.6, both rocam, the trick is when changing a battery, first connect the negative terminal, switch your ignition on, now connect the positive terminal, tada! Works every time, the reason is that there is a over voltage protector inside the instrument cluster, when you connect anything higher than 12volt it does its job, new charged batteries usually peaks at 12.72 volts

The instrument cluster is defective, pull it out and send it in for repair.

SOURCE: Temperature gauge fluctuates

First of all you have a bad heater core that needs to be replaced. Second you may have a bad temperature sensor. Make sure the radiator if full of water

SOURCE: engine warning light , battery light, warning

My 04 Ford Focus the battery light keeps coming on & going off, have fitted a new alternator belt but it didn't solve the problem. The battery connections are good. Also the rev counter, speedo & mileage clock keep going haywire when the battery light is on. Do you think it is the alternator? Or is it some other common problem?

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Escort dashboard warning lights and gauges not working.

Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.

Hi, I've got an Ford bantam rocam 13 the heat gage works but my fan never kicks in what can th problem be? Last question what name of oil is best for my bakkie?


Heat gauge operates on an engine sensor separate from the fan thermostat switch I believe. Oil is a thorny subject and you will get many different answers. Use the best you can afford (full synthetic is my choice) is the weight recommended by you owner's manual for the temperatures you will be expecting.

Change the temperature gauge sending unit on the engine. It's probably causing the fan to be on.

Gauges not working


It MAY be an internal problem with the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC). The place to BEGIN diagnosis would be to perform a COMPLETE scan of your ENTIRE onboard computer network. Please note that generic code readers CANNOT perform this function.

My fuel gauge rev counter speedometer and temperature gauge needles are not workin


I'm dealing with the same issues on mine: check the speedo cable is properly hooked up on the back of the instrument panel and at the sender on the transmission. Check your electrical connections and fuses are ok for all the other instruments.

First thing i would check is every ground source I could find . Ground connections at battery, fuse blocks etc. & also check to see if you can find any ground straps running from engine to firewall under hood, or frame to firewall, and make sure all are clean& in good shape, making good contact, and tight.
