Question about Ford Fusion

2 Answers

When driving, sometimes as i go over a bump the speedo needle will drop and mileometer cancels out and if the radio is on the volume will reduce, then another bump can bring it all back. The car is a ford fusion 2002 Had a sensor replaced a couple of years ago because the engine warning light kept coming on and off, as it sometimes does this now. Is this something i could fix myself?

Seems that the bump produces a **** on a connector or contactor so as to dislodge a connection. Now if this seems a loose connection of the harness, the connectors to the dashboard or the coupling links of the wiring harness then switch on radio and start the engine. now while you let someone watch , go under the dash and tap or **** the harness the connections and tap on the under side of the dash till the same symptoms are seen. Now cross check and zero in the section to confirm the loose connection.

Have an OBII scan done (fault scan) Any good parts store or shop can do it for you (usually free) and get list of faults your computer has tracked. It will point you in direction of fault. Sounds like a simple connection/contact issue.

I have a 51 Focus. My speedo has developed a habit of occasionally reading no speed or sometimes too fast and generally being erratic. Sometimes this is accompanied by the odometer going blank but not...


Your problems sound like they are electrical, i would suggest you take it to an electrician and have them identify the problem, it most likely is not the speedometer as all that does is just output the speed, the speed sensor might be one thing you can look at.

Speedo has suddenly stopped working also the mileometer has also stopped? please help


If you can hear it while your driving its the speedo and not the cable. Replace speedometer or whole gauge cluster.( What ever is easyer) You can find one on ebay. It could also be the speedo sensor on the top back half on the engine. REAL EXPENSIVE! Even for a used one. About $150 bucks for the sensor. And about the same for the Cluster.

it is the vss (vehicle speed sensor). i had the same problem, cost £35 for sensor and clip. its behind the gearbox. very awkward job but can be done yourself. the hardest part is getting the pin out, you need a very good pair of molegrips and a lot of patience.
