Hi there thanks and sorry for the delay
Ok your fault is caused by a faulty speed sensor (located on the top /rear of the gearbox
This was a common issue on the 1.8 zetec mk1 focus
To resolve this issue you need to have the speed sensor replaced (and a new roll pin for securing sensor as well as the old one can get damaged on removal of )
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
