Hi, this is the gearbox speed sensor which needs replacing, a right pain of a job to do and if it snaps it will be an expensive box strip, i reccomend a garage to carry out the job and this will cure your problem as it has with several of my cars in the past, very common problem in ford focus.

I have a 98 venture, when out of gear I rev the engine and at 3000rpm the engine start cutting out, power then no power,in 1/2 second intervals. It loses more power as you try to accelerate.


Don't have a lot of experience with this model , but , sounds like rev limiter is engaging because computer believes vehicle not moving maybe ?
Is speedo working if electric ? if speedo geared then is speed sensor bad , I have seen that before .

Speedo and rev counter reading even when engine is off!


I have a similar problems on my 2005 9-3. It has developed a number of minor electical issues. including dial and false warning light triggers. I have fixed most of them by simply going round the car disconnecting the electical connectors and spraying "switch cleaner" (Maplin or Radio Shack).
The only problem I have left is the rev counter occasionally starts reading high, removing the fuse (end of dash panel - 4th fuse down) for about 30s with engine off normally resets everything back to normal.
Hope that helps.

I am using toyota ipsum 2001.The speedometer and rpm arrows move errortically.Causing the engine to stall as if at free gear.


Sounds very much like a problem I have experienced on and off for a couple of years. If your rev and speedo gauges drop dead, your o/d light flashes and your auto gearbox doesn't like to change through the gears, then the odometer pcb has a failed chip. You can pull it apart and try to resolder the loose chip back on. But be warned this is very delicate job (more suited for repair shop) you could end up flooding other chips with solder (as i did). It can be changed out with one from the wreckers but will have to be re-set to your ks/milage. One solution at this stage, if re-soldering is your option, you can also swap your eeprom chip from your old odometer pcb to your new/used pcb from the wreckers. This eeprom carries all the historical ks/milage used. See some info on tachosoft.com (eeprom info) and info from toyota forums on speedo/rev gauges (pcb failure)

Engine warning light , battery light, warning light , rev counter , speedo and temp gauge going on/off intermitantly and speedo not working on digital screen on ford focus can you help. the battery is new...


My 04 Ford Focus the battery light keeps coming on & going off, have fitted a new alternator belt but it didn't solve the problem. The battery connections are good. Also the rev counter, speedo & mileage clock keep going haywire when the battery light is on. Do you think it is the alternator? Or is it some other common problem?

I have a 95 civic the RPM gauge jumps not a steady rise and sometimes the speedo does not work i dont get any check engine lights


Its very probably a bad circuit board behind the Rev guage and Speedo. Before you replace it check that the wiring harness is connected firmly.
