  1. Oh lol ... I thought it was a battery that goes in the cluster ... daft me :) Thank you guys will give it a go by tomorrow morning for sure
  2. How would a battery a help? what like the one we put in our watches? is there any How to for that?
  3. OK I just realised while I went to move it further back and the dials are not working on the dashboard ... the only is working is the petrol gauge (although this is working even if the car is off.) all the lights come up as normal. Just the dials not working and the mileage/trip LCD display.
  4. Even though it starts OK now and the battery seems fully charged :( I will have to put a battery on to try. A Ford Probe battery will it be OK ... or will the mah be too much?
  5. Hi guys, I have a Ford Focus 1.6 CL '51 reg Estate the battery was flat for about 2 weeks. I have a client coming to see the car this wednesday and possibly buy it. So I said better to plug in the charger and give a charge to the battery to start it up. Charged it enough ... started the engine, I then noticed that the mileage display was showing all 88888888, then the engine temp gauge not coming up at all. Everything else seems to be working OK in the car. I disconnected the negative from the battery and reconnected, started the engine again ... and now the display has gonne blank and the engine temp gauge is still not coming up. Has anyone come across similar problem with their Focus. I plugged in my OBDII Reader and it gives out readings for Engine coolant temp etc ... so I assume the sensors are fine ..
