Warning Lights

3 posts in this topic

I have a 2003 ford focus ! Yesterday the abs warning light came on . And today I was driving down the road and all or most of the warning lights started flashing and the rev counter and speedo stopped working .but the car was still driving fine. Any help would be very grateful ????

Sounds like a duff cluster.

The MK1/1.5 do have a problem with bad solders on the cluster which can be affected by condensation forming on the rear board.

A temporary fix is to blast it with WD40 and leave to air dry somewhere warm but invariably a new cluster can be needed.

My fiesta had a similar thing last year, try removing the cover over the cluster and unplug it then clean the connector and reinsert the fiesta one is a sealed unit though so perhaps this isn't possible on the focus, it's been fine since, I blamed the real cold weather last year as it went after being blasted with warm air for about 20 minutes from the demister. Most cases though seem to mean a completely knackered cluster.
