Why did my speedometer stop working and within minutes my 02 Cadillac Sts stalled and would barely accelerate?


The speedometer and odometer gets a signal from the speed sensor in the side of the transmission where the speedo cable once was.
The problem could be the speed sensor, or something in the wiring, or in the instrument cluster. Or it could be that the transmission is failing internally.

Ford focus 1999 speedometer works then drops to zero only occasionally


leave well alone untill it packs up completely as it could be the head and if it is then it will cost quite a bit so leave well alone ,it could be anything from the cable to teh speedo head or even the drive .

It doesnt want to idle but a few minutes


When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs,wires, all filters including fuel filter... I would start there giving yourself a good "ground zero" starting point.

Speedometer drops to zero and car stalls when braking?I have a 1999 1.8lx ford focus.


Check your brake lights, I bet they don't work.

Your issue is the Lock-UP torque converter is not un-locking when you depress the brakes (or let up on the accelerator), which it SHOULD DO.

Check you fuses first, then the "BOO" (brake on-off) switch on the pedal under the dash. Sometimes the wire breaks at the switch connector.

Speedometer and air conditioning problems - Ford Focus Saloon


The VSS (vehicle speed sensor) sends the signal that activates the speedometer. Interestingly enough the signal is also sent to the radio to adjust the volume for road noise. That would explain your perception that it is worse when listening to the radio. Now, solving your problem may not be as easy as following the link between these two devices, but I would check the vehicle speed sensor first.
