    Garage ran diagnostic's on car and all came back ok, lights on dash board are all working ie it will show when lights on, doors open, brake on.. temp gauge and rev, speed and petrol gauge just stopped working... Car engine battery etc all perfect... Hoping not an expensive job...

    I had the same problem with the black svt ford focus, everything works but the speed and rpms and the gas . there is a wire that goes to the starter and then it goes to the alternator. it has a plastic case and sometimes the case moves and the starter wire touches the engine

SOURCE: 2000 ford focus speedometer stuck at max speed

it may have a static charge in the instrument cluster,try un-hooking the battery then turn the key on and even hit the brakes to try to drain the spark out of the system,hooking the 2 cables together with the battery disconnected may work as well to drain it.hook up the battery and see what happens,but make sure the key is off and nothing is on-lights,radio,wipers etc,it could send a spark to the computer.

SOURCE: 1999 ford contour se custom sport check engine

Contour's are notorious for check engine lights. Mine has been on for years. The only way really to reset the CEL is to rent or buy a code reader and record the codes that are stored. Information on CEL codes is available on the internet. FYI the most common code for contour's are P0420 and P0421. These won't cause any driveability issues. As for your heater problem, your fan blower relay is toast

Ford Focus c max 1.8 petrol idle problems


This can be caused by a defective Maf sensor and coolant sensor, they will not trigger a code because as long as there is a signal the computer doesn't know the actual engine running condition enough to say the signal from the 2 sensors is wrong, this goes double for MAF sensors, another area is the idle speed control motor.. I want you to read about the problem at the link below.

Check the temp sensor wire that goes to the engine. They will short out to engine and make the dash do strange things.

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?
