As most of you know, you can enter a test mode on the instrument cluster but only a few of the functions have been figured out, untill now. Here is a list of all the functions:

1 Gauge Sweep All gauges carry-out sweep
2 LCD Test Makes all the LCDs light up
3 Bulb Test Lights all functioning cluster bulbs
4 Rom Level Displays the instrument cluster ROM revision level
5 NVM Level Displays the instrument clister NVM revision level
6 DTC Diagnostic trouble codes
7 Road speed MPH
8 Road Speed Kmph
9 RPMs
10 Fuel Volume
11 Engine cooland temperature
12 battery voltage
13 ABS Fail Displays ABS RAW input (H=over-charging or battery L=Ground)
14 Electronic brake distrubution failure ^
15 Illumination H=on L=off
16 Crank sense H=ignition L=ground or over-charging




There they are, go have fun and be merry!! (oh yea, print this out and put in your FOCUS manual also )

I searched, but couldn't find how to enter the Test mode. How do you do it?

Here's how:

Hold down your odometer reset button, turn your key and start the car, continue holding the button for a few seconds, and you'll get into "test mode", where you can scroll through a bunch of different readings by pressing the button.

I'm assuming for example, that #6, the MPH one, displays the current MPH on the LCD display. It's geek stuff - very cool.

I don't know but my cd player was messed up & I fixed it by pressing some buttons on the deck. The cd player said "phone" on it & I had no tunes. If you press 3,6, & seek up on the audiophile 9006 it will run diagnostics on the soundsystem.

Yes. DTC = Diagnostic trouble code.

i've tried it and although it's cool, it of course resets your trip meter. so unless you don't care what your mileage is, don't try it.

Also, there is an audio system selftest mode (press and hold the 5 & 6 buttons on the radio (radio is on as well) for a few seconds).

There is another audio system trick, this time pressing and holding the first and last buttons for a few seconds. However, i am unable to understand the result, can somebody try this and get back to me?

For more information on the Diagnostic mode mentioned throughout this thread check out FF's How-TO section on the home page. that's where i found out about it.
