Have a 2001 ford focus. first central locking suddenly stopped working and can#t even lock door with key. Now the speedometer and odometer keep dropping to 0 and then back up again and today the engine...


I would test your alternator..when you car isnt charging and battery voltage drops below 9.6 volts your instrument cluster will perform a reset...or shut off..as for the door locks im not entirely sure why they would stop working...good luck

2002 ford focus 1.4l ,73000mls,speedometer problem.


it is the vss (vehicle speed sensor). i had the same problem, cost £35 for sensor and clip. its behind the gearbox. very awkward job but can be done yourself. the hardest part is getting the pin out, you need a very good pair of molegrips and a lot of patience.
