In need of some advice be grateful if anyone can help.

I have a 1999 Focus 1.8 Petrol.

Over the last few weeks I've noticed the speedo drops to zero but picks back up after a minute or so.

But today it never picked back up and when I slowed down and the revs dropped and the engine cut out it started back up fine but continued to do it several times.

I done the key test and found it had 2 dtc codes

dtc123-throttle position sensor/switch A circuit high input

dtc041- cant find the description

Has anyone else had this issue or managed to resolve it 

Also if anyone can fix it or knows of a good garage in the Croydon area it would be helpful


As Peter has said regarding the speedo, that will likely be the sensor on the gearbox, needs replacing.
