Mk3 instrument cluster strangeness


Recommended Posts


Today I sat in my 2015 focus with the engine off and ignition off and noticed a noise and slight movement in the needles on the instrument cluster.

All needles were dropping below 0 then moving back up a few minutes later. 

I presume this is not not normal behaviour. Any ideas what is causing this and what the cure is?

Just seems to happen for about 5 minutes after ignition is turned off.

I hear the steering lock engage straight away then I presume the auto fan/cooling powering down. Then I witness the needles moving about.

Could it be some sort of calibration it does automatically.

I've seen that happen in my 2011 MK3 Titanium. Never paid much attention to it really. Although, could be unrelated, but if i turn ignition on without starting engine, it immediately flashes up low battery?

My car is on the latest software due to the numerous times it's been back.

The dials on mine seem to do a dance when the door is opened and just randomly when the engine is off. I'd say this was pretty normal, but bizarre all the same.
