I've become obsessed with this and am posting same on all similar queries I can find! Hundreds of cars have same fault, please if you read this and have same fault, email Watchdog, don't pay £500 plus to Renault and try Cluster Repairs UK or, who both repair for around £200 as do some other firms. You could also ring Renault and get a case no on the offchance they ever agree to compensate!

00 ford focus 1.4 estate speedo stops working and some times digital display looks like ----. all other guages work

your speedo works via the wheel speed sensors and/or the engine speed sensor and is processed via the ecu. facias are far more complicated than older models and do fail requiring specialist repair. To actually replace would require reprogramming in most cases.
I suggest you get your Focus scanned and see what dtc codes come up....speak to the technician and see if they make sense.
You may have abad wiring plug connector or something silly.
Dont too expensive.

I had the same problem.
The fuel filter located under the fuel tank can sometimes block.
What you could do is carefully disconnect the fuel line on the injector rail and have someone turn on the ignition to see if you are getting fuel in there if you are then its not the fuel filter or the pump

Speedometer wont move

You probably have a broken speedometer cable. Was the needle wagging back and forth and making strange noises periodically before it quit working?
