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

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?

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.
