Question about Ford Focus
It doesn't sound like a bad cluster as much as it sounds like a loose or bad connection in the wiring harness somewhere. What I would do is locate the harness under the dash that feeds the instrument panel and move it around while the panel is not working and watch for it to begin working again. Or, if it is working at the time, watch for it to go out again. As you get closer to the bad connection, you will have to move the harness less to get the same effect, but you will need to try moving it from one end to the other. If that doesn't help locate it, you will need to start checking the connections. Most likely it is either in the connection that connects the harness to the instrument panel or in a connector that connects the primary under-dash harness to the instrument panel harness. If you have trouble locating it, you can look up the information at http://www.alldatadiy.com . You will need to purchase a subscription for your vehicle for $26.95 USD, but it will tell you the harness locations, connector locations, wiring diagrams, repair procedures, etc. Everything you need to know about your vehicle. (You are in Australia? I have always wanted to move there! I am in the United States.) Good luck.
