There is no speedometer cable on a Ford Focus. But, it does have a vehicle speed sensor on the transmission.

Cleanup and desoxyde the speedsensor plugs, the speedsensor connector and the ground connector on the engine (cleanup all the ground connectors anyway, thats a ford... );
or change the speed sensor...

100% the vehicle speed-sensor on the top of the gearbox. Can be a pain to remove, but cheap to buy.
best of luck.
check vehicle for fault code, had the same problem and it gave a code on my obd2 reader..

Welcome to fixya

I would try to tighten the cable if this does not work it sounds like you cable to the speedometer is broken and you would need a new one

hope this helps out have a good day :)

2001 Buick Century Limited speedometer problem, Speedometer not working but odomitor ok. Is there a fuse?


if the odometer is working then the problem is with the speedometer head unit as the odometer gets its information from the same source as the speedometer. you can have the speedometer head checked and fixed if its fixable.

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

Hi i got a focus ghia 2 litre on a 51 plate,the electronic computer, which tells you you have 20 miles left before you run out of fuel , is that acurate ?? regards chris..


That should be acurate to about a few miles, it take the average miles per gallon to find its reading, a good test would be to put a gallon of gas in the car and drive until it tells you you have 2 miles left and then go get gas, this way if you run out you will be able to put gas in, i think this would be a good way to test the system. good day.

Wide tires make less gas millage, get narrow wheels, let the car accomplish speed slowly from 0 to 30, look at air filter,if shortly replaced, oxygen censor, 15 miles is normal 16 miles per gallon is good for a V8
