Speedometer not working on 2004 Ford Fiesta

This is a second hand car which I bought only yesterday. It's done 41000 miles.
I was reving it a bit too much on a hill start and immediatly after this, the speedometer stopped working. I pulled over to let the car cool down as the clutch was smelling a lot, however when I went to drive off the speedometer stil lwasn't working. Everything else seems to be working okay though.

It's coincidental that the speedo stopped working here. Chances are that the cable broke and needs replacement. If you can get the instrument panel out of the dash you'll be able to disconnect the cable from the speedo and remove the broken drive spring inside it. If you're lucky it broke at the top. If not you'll have to also remove the cable from the transmission to get the remaining parts out before replacing it.

Should I buy honda accord sport or ford fiesta st?


Both good cars, Hondas last far longer. Got a 2006 FRV that has done 175000 miles, 2.2 diesel and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, it is not mint but is excellent. Aford would not last as long and not be as reliable. Honda is a far better c r. Last car was a mondeo, nice car but was already falling to bits at 75000 miles when we sold it.

The orange engine light is flashing intermittently and its driving very lumpy


Hi, my dad has just bought a ford fiesta 2003 on sunday. His engine light came up yesterday and is continually on. He took it to a garage today and they said it was the catalyst converter. It costs £300-£400 for a new one. Its to do with the emissions the car is giving out.

I have a 1997 Ford Fiesta and yesterday I notice the speedometer and mileage counter have stopped working - is it the icey weather or is there something wrong?


The cable probably came disconnected. Check the transmission side first as it's easier. Black cable, starts at the gauges, and runs through the firewall. Most just come unscrewed over time and fall down in the dash.
