2002 Ford Focus ZX5 electrical problem

Asked by Nov 25, 2015 at 09:25 AM about the 2002 Ford Focus ZX5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last night I was driving down the
road without any issues when
suddenly all of my gauges stopped
working (speedometer, temp, fuel)
and the odometer screen is blank. I
pull over and as soon as I put my car
in park the gauges shoot up to the
highest they will go and the battery
light turns on. I pop the hood see no
issues right then and there so I
continue driving since I was a mile
away from my house. Every time I
accelerated the gauges would not
work and the odometer was off, and
when I stopped the gauges went to
normal but the battery light turned
on. This morning I tried to turn my
car on and nothing. If anyone has
any idea what's going on please let
me know! Thanks!
