Has anyone had a fault on their instrument panel/cluster? I have an 2003 Ford Focus Estate 1.8 TDI and in the middle of last year the speedo and rev. counter dials started dropping back to zero and mileage reading disappeared on an intermittent basis. Later on the engine warning or battery warning light started coming on and off at regular intervals. When eventually checked by my local ford dealer, I was told that the panel would have to be replaced. Cost €380+
Contact with Henry Ford & Sons Cork has offered no joy as car is outside warrant period. Replacement means you lose all mileage history.
To me this is an obvious manufacturing defect and Ford should cover the replacement cost.
Anyone else had this problem?
