Question about 2003 Ford Freestyle

1 Answer

Rev counter needle

After trying to start my fiesta when the battery was flat the rev counter and the speedo needle went fully to maximum, Once the battery was charged the speedo needle returned to zero but the rev counter stayed at max. when the engine starts the needle tries to go to the engine speed but cannot get past the stop at zero.
How can I get the needle to return to the proper side of the stop?

Speedo works sometimes and doesnt work sometimes?


It's unlikely you may have a loose instrument cluster connector unless someone was previously working around that area behind it. If no activity before hand then I'm guessing you may have a deteriorating instrument cluster that needs replacing. You can find people selling in ebay (lower price) or directly from the dealer.

Engine warning light , battery light, warning light , rev counter , speedo and temp gauge going on/off intermitantly and speedo not working on digital screen on ford focus can you help. the battery is new...


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?

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.

pull the instrument cluster out and check the printed circuit and connector to it from harness, plug it in and out three or four times, this may cure the problem.
