This happens quiet regulary, my speedo will cut out and sometimes switch between 0mph and the speed I'm actually doin, short after the traction will turn off and i won't be able to turn it down. Another this is while this is happening my car now and again will go really judery, doesn't feel nice at all. Also the music goes down???? Would appreciate help

This is a common problem with the focus, your problem is the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is on it's way out, my advice is to get to Ford as soon as and get this replaced.
Hope this is of help.

I second that. It is most definitely your Vehicle Speed Sensor. I had a lot of the same problems and changed the sensor last weekend and it's all been fine since. A new sensor cost me about £36 and you'll need the retaining pin also (£2). Mine was a massive effort to get out, guess that's what 100,000 miles does to it! It's a simple procedure, just need a lot of patience!
