Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Ford Focus Zx3 and the speedometer went out all other gauges work fine, but the odometer is not moving and is staying at current millage. I just replaced the Vss and its still not working. I just installed an amp and sub. When i hit a puddle the other day the speedometer went crazy for about an half hour and now it doesn't work at all. Any Help?

    try to force it to do the water thing again, and do it till a fuse blows locate what all is wired into that circuit,any signals leading to the cluster are suspect, repair and then try replacing cluster.

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.

Parking lights stay on when the key is turned off


there are more wires that you cannot see that are melted that is causing the problem. trace all of your wires, starting with the license plate light, all the way to the headlights

After changing the oil on a ford focuc 1.8 tddi the oil pressure light flickers on and off when im driving but the oil level is fine


I had a 2000 Focus ZX3 and Mine did the same thing. All I had to do is tighten the oil filter down pretty tight and It went away. Hopefully you get the same result.
