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 :)
