Hi, I have a 2002 ford fousus saloon tddi which has suddenly developed the following fault, all gauges metioned above have stopped working, also glow plug light and milometer has stopped, indicators etc still show up though and with the lights on it's back lit.
Does anyone have any ideas? I have checked the relevant fuses but they seem to be fine.
There is an earth connecting point up under the dask direcrly above the accellerator pedal. It is a large bolt that contains two larger terminals. I cant see how this can come loose but you should check it out anyway.
I also have a possible earth problem somewhere in the dash. I am tryingto locate an earth point that is supposed to be right in the centre of the dash.
i would appreciate any assistance also. Good luck.
OK, so it was a faulty instrument panel? I've had the same problem in my 2002 Focus CL just yesterday, but it has been intermittent - after a couple of restarts it corrected itself.
I've seen some other people say it could be the VSS (vehicle speed sensor), so my question is which is more likely - faulty instrument panel, bad earth, or broken VSS? And how much does an new instrument panel cost?
