Question about 2004 Ford Fusion
I have a series 2 Frontera (2000) 2.2 Petrol Sport RS 4x4. This modelhas been known to have a nagging fault which is a non operatingspeedo. Some people say that it is the fault of the PCB in thedashboard, and could possibly be a crack or dry solder joints. However, does anyone have knowledge of this fault? and if so couldanyone point me in the right direction for more information? Prior tolooking at the board, does anyone know how to test if the speedo dialitself is working? ie the system is electronic.
Themanufacturers do not acknowledge that there has been faults of thisnature. Hence it is difficult to get any sense from the Main Dealers ie they tend to change the board, and less that one year later you areback where you started from, minus a big wad of cash :(
Grateful for any information.
ps I put this under the Ford Fusion grouping as the Frontera is sold under another name in the US. but I am not sure what it is called and who distributes it.
Hello i had the same problem with my 1999 frontera b 2.2l sport i took instrumentcluster out and the bottom connector with the solder connector lines on the circuit board that the dials are on not the plastic circuit board just get a solder iron and melt the solder agan to make it fresh andclean again now all the instuments work again including the speedo that wasn't before and it fixes the problem that the dials would only work when the headlights were on try this and you won't be disapointed i can now see the peed that iam doing :) am very happy

Tim Moore. You are a star!!!!! I had the same problem speedo not working and I did what Tim suggested and now it works a treat.another tip I found was to bend the contacts on the plug out a bit more to get a tight fit against the solder. :-) happy happy happy!!!!
