      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Strange speedo lights

    Hey all, this is my first post in here. I did look at other posts before I posted thisone but noone else seems to have the same problem as me. I have had my Focus 1.8 Petrol for just over a year now. The problem i have is this: when its dark you turn on the lights, your dials get illuminated. Mine get illuminated but after a short while the backlight just dies, all other things work, rev counter, speedo, indicators and various other lights. its just the backlight that doesnt work. The first time it happened, i was confused so i whacked the top of the dash and the lights flickered but didnt stay on. Sometimes i can get home from work without the lights going out but then if i have to use the car again, the backlights dont come on. Its getting dark and i cant see what speed i'm doing, apart from assuming i cant see where the needle is. I'm going to try and take it out this week and see whether there are any loose connections behind, i hope this is the case. If anyone has any help for me i'd be greatful. thanks
