Question about 2003 Ford Focus

Ford focus mk1 speedo not working after install. of glow gauges

If sm else faced this problem please help.
Since I found no other way how to remove the gray front panel, I found the easiest way to remove the needles, after i spent lot of time to set precisely the new glow gauges I went for a drive to try to put the nedles exactly in their place while driving and checking the digital lcd for speedo and rpm's. What i figure out is that there is no chance for speedo to be re-set to show exact speed. What I did is, while driving ex. 50 or 60 or even 70 kph (km per hour) I install the nedle but while slowing down to app. 30 or 25kph, needle turns clockwise (shows 80 or 90 kph). If I drive more than 100 kph needle goes to 220 and it stops and stays forever there. I tried to re-set the cluster, 3 other needles go to the end and back but speedo only jumps uncontroled from 220 to 170 and back 2 to 3 times and that's it. Thnx in advance

There are 2 locations in your vehicle that have fuses in them. The description of the locations of those are below. Also below are diagrams of the fuse layouts for each as well as a description of what each fuse is for. This should all be in your owners manual if you have one. If you don't and would like a copy, you can email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. No worries no cost for it. I hope this helps and good luck.

Speedo,tacho,fuel gauge,temp gauge stopped working on 2004 focus all fuses working


Maybe, a wire came lose. Did you hit anything? Spill any water inside? Could be a short, considering they all went out. Did they all go out at once?

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?
