2000 Reg Focus Trip Computer Fitting?

Recommended Posts

The ghia version of the focus had the trip computer /mpg/range ect

iv got the zetec model which doesnt have it. in its place theres a little duket for loose change ect

if i purchased a trip computer from ebay out of a 2000 reg focus ghia and removed the duket were it would be located on the ghia model would the wires/connections be sitting around behind for me to install the trip computer?

many thanks people

The guide misses a few bits out you need trip computer and surround to fit it in you need windscreen wash bottle with low warning sensor and an outside temperature sensor then to check the wiring you have to remove the dash clocks ie speedo etc and look for a connector plug heavily taped up if u dont have this then forget the rest. best bet is find a ghia in a scrapyard or search ebay for all u need. The conector is only there on some cars

thanks very much, il remove that section of facia to check for conections tomoro, if there actualy there il buy the ghia style facia aswell. when u mentioned the windscreen wash bottle with sensor i guess on the trip computer theres a warning for when its low? would i be good to go without that and just not have a reading for the wash bottle? or would that bugger the whole thing up?

Using my mobile as im at work so didnt see that part well i did but dont speak german. I Was going to do it on my old mk1 but wasnt prepared to spend 150 quid on the used parts just for a computer that doesnt work fully you need to fht all the parts for it to work you might be lucky having an early car as most had the wiring

Use Google Chrome, it has built in translator feature, open link to this guide and translate the whole page into English. It works and you do not need to know foreign language. I did it many times as my German, Russian and Dutch are not perfect :)

You can do this (I have), You simply have to "permanently earth" the wire responsible for the warning light (I taped mine to the crash bar).
