Since I got my 1999 1.8 Focus everytime I start it up all the dials do a full sweep and occasionaly the trip meter resets to zero. It has no problems starting but just wondered why it does this ?

the same happened to me in another car deffo the battery also used to make my temp gauge sit at 3/4 when driving and at 1/4 when engine was off, change it asap or 1 day soon its just not gonna start when you really need it to and like me sit and wait over an hour for the AA and then wait another 30mins for them to test it and then change it THAT WAS 90 MINS I DIDNT HAVE SPARE

Battery, or bad earths. Focus takes a "063" battery, Take the car to Halfords, they do a free battery check that will tell you what condition your battery is in. If the battery is good, check your earth's. Bad earth's is a VERY common fault on the focus.
