Im guessing you get a topic like this every single day lol

but on my mk1 ford focus 1991 my speedo has comply stoped working and every now and again it may work for a couple miles

and also my miles aint going up aswell

i have changed the speedo sencor on the gearbox but it still isnt working iv check the wiring behind the clocks and everything is fine

everything else on the clocks is fine eg petrol, revs, temp gages r all working apart from speedo

so can anyone else help??

Many thanks tony

I had a similar problem. The speed sensor and instrument panel were replaced but it still happened. It was eventually traced to a chafed wire from the speed sensor where it passes close to the gear selector. Might be worth a look.
