To enter the instrument cluster self-diagnostic mode simultaneously depress and hold the tripmeter reset button then turn the ignition switch to position II or III. 2. Release the tripmeter reset button when TEST is displayed on the LCD. This will take between 5 and 8 seconds. 3. The instrument cluster will enter the gauge sweep test. 4. To navigate to the following tests while in self-diagnostic mode depress the RESET button to move to the next test. 5. The self-test is deactivated when the ignition is turned to the OFF position. #.Test #.Syntax Displayed #.Gauge/Indicator/Display Tested #.Description #.1..Gauge sweep. #.GAGE. #.Tachometer, speedometer, temperature and fuel. #.All gauges go through a full up and down pointer sweep smoothness check, which takes approximately 5 seconds. #.2..Fill in all LCD. #.8888. #.LCD display built into Speedometer. #.Fills in LCD display therefore seeing if display functioning correctly. #.3..Indicator bulbs. #.BULB. #.Instrument cluster illuminates indicator and warning indicators. #.Illuminates all the warning indicators that are controlled by the instrument cluster. #.4..ROM level. #.rXXX. #.Instrument cluster read only memory (ROM). #.Displays the instrument cluster ROM revision level. #.5..NVM level. #.EXXX. #.Instrument cluster non volatile memory (NVM). #.Displays the instrument cluster NVM revision. #.6..DTC. #.XXXX or NONE. #.Diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). #.To list the DTCs stored, press the RESET button. ..REFER to the instrument cluster diagnostic trouble code (DTC) index below. ..The DTC codes will scroll through if there is more than one. #.7..Road speed mph. #.XXX.X. #.Speedometer. #.Displays the speed signal input in mph. #.8..Road speed Km/h. #.XXX.X. #.Speedometer. #Displays the speed signal input in Km/h. #.9..Engine speed. #.XXXX. #.Tachometer. #.Displays the tachometer input signal (RPM). #.10..Fuel volume. #.FXXX. #.Fuel sender system. #.Displays the fuel volume signal input. #.11..Coolant Temp. #.XXXC #.Engine coolant temperature. #.Displays the engine coolant temperature signal input. #.12..Battery Voltage. #.bXXX. #.Battery Voltage (t). #.Displays battery voltage input. #.13..ABS fail. #.Ab-[H/L]. #.ABS system. #.Displays ABS raw cluster input.

(H = Ignition, L = Ground or over-charging). #.(Crank sense it the Pos I (Accessory) supply to the cluster. If this is missing then the cluster will remain dead for about 20 seconds after key on. Then it will function normally. This can happen when someone fits a radio and blows the accessory fuse). Note: Additional tests are available after number #.16 but are not useful for diagnostics. Note: Later vehicles had a "cost reduced" cluster that had a different Engineering Test Mode layout. These came in about 03-53 reg, and can be distinguished by only the symbol lighting up in the tell tale rather than the whole lot. (LEDs rather than bulbs). These clusters used stepper motors for the gauges rather than the air cored ones and did not have a Gauge Sweep test? Self ..........DTC..........

DTC Codes   Courtesy of Preee:   Has anyone managed to get this trick to work with a Keyless Ignitiion "power start button"? Focus 2010 I tried , holding the reset button on the trip lever , "no trip reset on center dash" and starting the engine with the button continued holding for about 12 hrs and still nothing .lol. Tried placing the "key" in and doing the same , nothing happens apart from reseting the trip. BTW key does not turn so can't get II and III positions. *EDIT* - Got it to work. On keyless power start. 1)hold trip reset button in. 2)Short press half way down of the power button , displays II position lights. 3)Continue to hold trip reset button. 4)Menu comes up and click trip reset button to scroll through .   --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Courtesy of Bass Junkie:   For DTC help please find the following link    http://www.eobd2.eu/DTCL.asp select FORD, then enter your DTC code. Should be one letter followed by 4 numbers, however your dash may not show the proper code.    For instance if the code shown is P117, enter it as P0117 and it will give you what the error is. P0117 is  Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Low Input.   --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
