Remove the dash cluster to gain access to the back of the cluster to change the bulbs.

The instrument cluster can be replaced. The connectors on the back of the instrument clusters are the same for all versions of that generation of the Ford Focus. There are however problems when doing this: -The odometer will show the miles from the old cluster. The milage is built in to the cluster, not the car. -Some panel lights (like the ABS light) may light up depending on your vehicle's options. It is sometimes possible (although usually relatively expensive) to have the cluster reprogrammed at a Ford dealership to correct these problems.

You have to remove the instrument cluster to get access to the bulbs.

The alternator is over or under charging.

NO. The battery light as you call it is actually the charging system light. If it is staying on the charging system is not working properly. More than likely the alternator has failed. It really has very little to do with the battery.

Unhook your negative battery cable, turn your light switch on, then turn it off and reconnect the battery. That should reset the computer.

The check engine light on a 2002 Ford Focus can be reset by disconnecting the battery for 1 to 2 minutes. This resets the vehicle's computer and clears the light.

Check engine light : Gauge cluster without tachometer ( under the engine oil pressure gauge ) Gauge cluster with tachometer ( just to the left of the battery voltage gauge )

There is no reset for the charging system light. If it is on then you have a problem. More than likely the alternator is defective.

To change the rear light cluster, first gain access to the boot, then remove the three plastic covers located directly behind cluster in boot these give you access to three 10mm nuts. To remove these nuts you will need a 10mm socket and a medium reach extension bar, remove all three nuts being careful not to drop them and the rear cluster will come away from body work then remove the lampholders to remove cluster completely. This is also how you would change a bulb in the rear cluster if you need to.

RKE, remote keyless entry. That message in the cluster means that either a remote is failing, or the battery in it is weak.

pull entire cluster out..its behind the circuit board of odometer

One possible cause is a defective alternator, Have the charging system checked.

User Avatar

you can usually reset those by disconnecting the car battery for 15sec or so.

I found this tricky too. It's not that obvious and it's different to how it works on some other cars I've had. Undo the 2 screws on light cluster. Then to get the cluster out, if you are standing at the rear of the car and you wish to remove the left cluster, move it slightly to the left to release it from its fixture, then pull it towards you. Once you have release the light cluster, you can remove the individual bulbs via the rear of the cluster - rotate the bulb's round plastic fixture and then pull it out.

There are several bulbs for dash illumination. They are attached to the backside of the dash cluster. The best way to access the bulbs would be to remove the dash cluster.

There is the ( low coolant ) warning light that is at the bottom of your gauge cluster between the engine temperature gauge and your tachometer

The best way to reset the ABS light on a Ford Focus is to take it to a mechanic. There are some people who have had success resetting the light by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for about 15 minutes while inflating the tires to 33 pounds of air pressure. Then, turn the headlights on and off and reconnect the battery terminal.

you access the light cluster by getting through the boot and pulling back the carpet near the cluster. The whole thing comes out in one fiddly piece. replace the bulb and the whole thing clips back into place. I'm assuming by light you mean bulb.

In the wifes Zetec its in the boot inside the offside panel just to the side of the light cluster access, if you getb were i mean.

User Avatar

Generally, you need to remove the cluster and once you do you will be able to get at the individual bulbs in the back of the instrument cluster. Common tools are all that I have ever used, but disconnect the battery first.

User Avatar

Hazard light??? Do you mean charging system light? If so it is on because the alternator is not functioning properly.

User Avatar

Bad Alternator or the Battery possibly is losing voltage. I replaced the alternator and serpentine belt before thinking it was the battery. The battery was only 16 months old. But it turned out to be the bad source.

Because a star cluster is not definitely defined, many may fit the request.The Ursa Major Moving Group is roughly 80 light years from us.The Hyades star cluster is the nearest open cluster at 153 light years.The Pleiades is an open cluster at around 400 light years.

The Coma cluster is one of the nearest clusters but it is not the nearest. At a mean distance of about 321 million light years the Virgo Cluster is closer at a mean distance of only 59 million light years.
