Hi
your speedo works via the wheel speed sensors and/or the engine speed sensor and is processed via the ecu. facias are far more complicated than older models and do fail requiring specialist repair. To actually replace would require reprogramming in most cases.
I suggest you get your Focus scanned and see what dtc codes come up....speak to the technician and see if they make sense.
You may have abad wiring plug connector or something silly.
Dont guess...it too expensive.
Cheers
Roger

Ford focus 1.6 1998 speedo only works sometimes, then just goes flat, including digital reading, then will start working again, but more often its not working.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that the speedometer sensor is bad. If it's bad, it may work and may not work in any given time. As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you replace the speed sensor itself. You will need to remove the connector then remove the speed sensor by rotating counter clockwise. Put in the new speed sensor and take it for a few runs to know if it's working.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

speed sensor would usually cause hesitation aswell,could be the start of your clocks failing,you can get it plugged in to check this as it does have its own fault memory.
