Focus 2008 1,6Tdci - Red Instrument Lights Flashing A Little Now And Then

By this I mean the " backlight " itself, every digit and function is ok. So far.

Flashing is quite brief, and I cannot see any malfunction by now. This goes for both speedometer cluster and the climate display!

But I do have a problem with the ABS light and ESP light beeing active most of the time. This is going to be examined by Ford very soon. They've said that this particular problem MAY be due to ABS main pump beeing defective as the ABS wheel sensor was ok. It has only 3,5 V from the plug.

Should I mention the red light flashing issue to my Ford garage, or will it only lead them in wrong directions?

There is a dimmer for the instrument lights. I have considered that the dimmer itself can be poor and cause this. The dimmer is a potmeter that may need electronic cleaning spray, or beeing replaced.

Usually a bad potmeter shows worse when using it but I'm not sure.

Any ideas? Appreciate any tips!

the red flashing light in the center of the instrument cluster is to do with the immobilizer....... there is a problem somewhere if it flashes constantly......

The thing is that it is everything that lights red that flashes briefly. The entire red light in the back of the speedometer and the climate display.
