Customer Question
The speedo on my...

The speedo on my '51 plate Mondeo 1.8 petrol has developed a fault. Intermittently stops working. All other instruments are working OK.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

I don't think so. Starts OK.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mondeo yourself? What have you tried so far?

Check the self diagnostics via trip reset button but no error codes. Took it to a garage for testing but they couldn't find anything. No fault codes reported.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The engine cut out on one occasion after the speedo stopped working. Started OK straight afterwards though.
