    How did you pop the cover off. Mine is a curvd oiece of plastic and it looks like the entire front of the dash needs to be removed. I see no screws or latches to remove. I am afraid to try prying it with a screwdriver. Please tell me HOW you poped it off.

My 2003 ford focus speedometer stops working sometimes as does the elecyric odometer- sometimes both at same time. Other gauges work fine. The odometer goes to just dashes in place of the actual mileage...


Usually if both the odometer and speedometer stop working, the problem is the speed sensor on the transmission. You should also have a trouble code in the engine computer.
If one component works but the other does not, the problem is usually the speedometer head in the dash.

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.

Odometer,spedometer,radio


My nephew has a 96 taurus also when his radio went out he noticed that his speedometer was not working as well so we check the fuses under the dashboard and found that a fuse from the radio memory was blown . We replaced it and the radio and speedometer and the odometer worked fine

Brake light and ABS light is on and the speedometer, odometer and tripometer are inoperable


replace the left front wheel hub assy. with 4 wheel abs. The spedometer works off of the left front wheel sensor. It will fix the abs/brake light and the spedometer will start working
