Cutting Out And Speedo Malfuntioning

Recommended Posts

i have a 1.8 mk1 focus, since i have owned it the speedo occassionally drops to 0 and you can feel a noticeable power drop when this happens and when i put my foot on the clutch coming to a junction it will cut out on me?? the lcd display will also sometimes just go blank or the speedo will just do its own thing going from 0-140 waving about all over the place. any ideas?

The speed sensor does appear to be a common MK1/1.5 fault.

I had it on my old car and a couple of friends locally had it too.

A bit of a pig to swap but the replacement units are pretty much unlikely to go again.
