I'm ***** *****. My dashboard on my 04 Ford Focus started

Customer Question

Customer: Hi I'm ***** *****. My dashboard on my 04 Ford Focus started flashing a few weeks ago.....literally all the lights are flashing and an intermittent beeping sound is emitted about every 10 seconds. Prior to this the engine light was on continuously for about a week then went off permanently. Now the petrol gauge, speedometer and temp gauge has failed! There is also a clicking noise from under the glove compartment every now and again, the indicators flash erratically in time to the indicator flashing on the dashboard, and if I try and click the rear and front window heaters on the buttons just click back out Also, the windscreen wipers will work erratically, which they didn't do before. Completely bizarre and annoying. I called the RAC man out and he said that no fault could be detected and it is a bad connection. Some help please!!
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
