My ford focus speedo only works intermitently when this happens the car seems to run lumpy

I would say, get the fault codes checked, the engine need the speed signal, to run properly , so take it from there.

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?

You are still under warranty. Lincoln products have longer warranties. Make it the dealers problem. There may already be a fix in the system.

I would guess something like a speedo cable or clearance problem between moving plastic or rubber parts. If not, the fan clutch could be a possibility.

Hi i have a peugeot 405 diesel and the speedo

I had a similar problem with my old peugeot 405 diesel, something electrical was shorting and actually sparking in the engine compartment which in my case the garage fixed very easily. Same symptoms, the speedo flickered at low speeds but stopped at higher speed.
