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.

SOURCE: problem with speedometer for ford focus tdci reg03

This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.

SOURCE: 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.

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

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.

Changed speed sensors in 03 silverado but speedometer still reads incorect?


I have a 2005 Silverado and around 75,000 miles the speedometer started malfunctioning. It would go to max speed, then everytime I started the engine it would step down about 5 mph until it finally reached normal. It would be ok for a while and then do it again. I found out there is a known problem with the speedometer. Depending on age of vehicle and mileage some of the repair cost is covered. You have to pull the whole dash unit and replace it. Dealer only, as they have to get a documented replacement with correct mileage. You may have a different problem but worth checking.

Electrical failure of instruments (temp & fuel gauges, speedometer & rev counter) on 52reg ford focus. All fuses intact. What's the problem?


Check the temp sensor wire that goes to the engine. They will short out to engine and make the dash do strange things.

Speedometer counter don't working


Sounds like the clocks have been tampered with if the speedometer is still working, You can try running the miles backwards with a drill on the cable, and then forwards again past the number where it jammed, run it back and forth a few times and once it gets past the stuck number youre sorted... it may happen again in 1,10,100 or 1000 miles time... and if so youre best with a new or scrapyard speedometer - write down the original mileage when you change the speedometer - maybe on a panel under the bonnet so you have something to go off to decide when to service the car - EG old mileage + new mileage = actual mileage. hope this helps.

Engine warning light , battery light, warning light , rev counter , speedo and temp gauge going on/off intermitantly and speedo not working on digital screen on ford focus can you help. the battery is new...


My 04 Ford Focus the battery light keeps coming on & going off, have fitted a new alternator belt but it didn't solve the problem. The battery connections are good. Also the rev counter, speedo & mileage clock keep going haywire when the battery light is on. Do you think it is the alternator? Or is it some other common problem?
