SOURCE: rev counter, speedo & sometimes fuel & temp guage not working

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.

These vehicles seem to have a problematic short, my grandfather has the same vehicle with the same problem, i found the short under the carpet on the driver side of the vehicle, under the gas pedal, sometimes wires can crack and break.

SOURCE: engine warning light , battery light, warning

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?

I have a 2007 3.2 DI-D GLS SWB Auto 4x4 and have a problem which started suddenly 2 days ago. None of the instruments come on when switching the ignition key. I have checked the fuse #2 and it is not


Your problem may be in the ignition switch. There is a lot of stuff going on when you turn the key. There is an actuator in the ignition. Normally the car won't turn over when they go bad, but I can't know everything!!!!

Electrical failure of instruments (temp & fuel gauges, speedometer & rev counter) on 52reg ford focus. All fuses intact. What's the problem?


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

My fuel gauge rev counter speedometer and temperature gauge needles are not workin


I'm dealing with the same issues on mine: check the speedo cable is properly hooked up on the back of the instrument panel and at the sender on the transmission. Check your electrical connections and fuses are ok for all the other instruments.

Fuel and Temp Gauge go on and off intermitently


faulty wiring for the lights, and blinkers....

broken gears for the fuel and temp gauge...

just get rid of the damn car, get a Civic of the same year.

I was given a 323 once, unsiezed the rear brakes (the idiot left the thing parked with the e-brake on all winter), then sold it for beer money.

Speedo unit died then Fuel gauge went to max


the dash control board is the controler for the boards in the dash, fuel temp etc. inside the dash itself, a board on the rev counter controls voltage to feed the the fuel gauge etc. the back of the speedo burnt,there is the 3 pin voltage control chip on the board. you can replace the boards. you can remove them from another dash and place them into yours but if you say the board burnt out on the speedo . then i would just change the dash as it would be easier as you would need to replace the speedo as well. you will also need to inform dvla that the speedo has been changed as for mots its recorded. or have the speedo rectified to the right mileage. not informing dvla can affect your insurance.

First thing i would check is every ground source I could find . Ground connections at battery, fuse blocks etc. & also check to see if you can find any ground straps running from engine to firewall under hood, or frame to firewall, and make sure all are clean& in good shape, making good contact, and tight.
