Hi all,
I've just purchased a Focus 1.4 cl 52plate (first Ford) Everything since purchase has been great,car is very nice to drive,tight and seems well looked after and am enjoying it... anyway

Just noticed this morning (had car 4 days) when I turned off the engine and removed the key both the fuel gauge and temp gauge jumped up to halfway mark?
When I turn the ignition back on the dials/gauge goes back to the correct levels??
When removed after a second back to halfway and don't move until restarting.

Is this normal? ( had a peugeot before so had many strange faults/issues )
If anyone could help it would be appreciated :)

Many thanks in advance

Cheers for reply mate.
Feel much better hearing that :)

Am used to one problem after another with last car, cough 206!
I'm driving without the stereo on and listening to any squeak, engine noise or rattle, paranoid or what

Again many thanks.
