I have a Mk5 2000 reg Ford Fiesta Zetec-S. It is a really lovely car, but has developed an issue.
When I was driving a few weeks ago, the speedo stopped working. The rev counter still works, but just no speed reading. When I push the clutch down and break, the car often stalls and all of the lights on the dash come on (as usual when stalling).
I had a reading at a local Kwik Fit using their Bosch kit and it highlighted a fault with the Vehicle Speed Sensor. Now, this is an ABS model and I was under the impression that the ABS sensors fed the speed into the car? In which case, it must be an ABS sensor fault?
Is there a VSS that I just don't know about? There is a cable running from the top of the gearbox up to the top of the engine, which could be it, but I can't seem to find the part anywhere and mixed info on whether the vehicle does indeed have a VSS...
Any advice from you guys and girls would be most welcome,
