Ford Focus Dashboard Instrument Cluster - common fault

This Ford Focus instrument cluster is a very common failure, this will cause an intermittent failure of all instruments, lights and gauges. If the instrument cluster fails while driving then this will often cause the engine to cut out. If failure happens while attempting to start the vehicle then it will prevent the engine from starting. You will notice the immobilizer light flashes continuously when the instrument cluster fails and the mileage reading will only show dashes (-------) instead of the mileage. The fault normally always starts out as an intermittent fault but will become permanent with time.

We are currently rebuilding customers own instrument clusters with an unlimited mileage lifetime warranty.

  • Loss of all instrument cluster functions and lights

Affected Vehicles:

Ford Focus 2004 - 2011 (all variants)

 

Test and rebuild:

We fully test every instrument cluster before and after the rebuild process to ensure every instrument cluster performs as originally intended by the manufacturer and is as good as, if not better than a brand new unit. We test these units on a purpose build HIL (Hardware In-the-Loop) test rig that replicates all driving conditions, this allows us to replicate any fault described by the customer.

 

Programming:

There is no need to re-code or reprogram your instrument cluster once you receive it back, just plug in and away you go.

 

Quality:

We take a great deal of pride in our work and will always handle your instrument cluster as if it where our own, we understand how important it is for your instrument cluster to always look as good as new when it is fitted back to your vehicle. We rebuild these Ford Focus clusters for both main dealers and independent specialist all over the globe, so you can always be assured of our very high standard of work.
