    Yeah it slipped the minds of the dummies that wrote the manual in 2001 to post instructions for this one lamp. They sure go on and on about seat belts and fuel economy common sense though.....

I tried changing the license plate bulb on my 2001 ford focus and I cannot pop the cover back in. I also broke my license plate cover in the process. Now none of the lights in the rear of my car are...


Sounds like something is connecting to the car body, I would inspect the bulb you changed make sure the metal clips or wires are not touching anything.

I have a 2001 Focus Zx3. The dashlights, parking


Sounds like a short circuit here ? You will need to locate the short circuit . Most probable is the tail lamps and their connections , then number plate lights , then any hinged wiring going from body to a door or trunk (ie No plate illum lights) area . Sometimes the dash dimmer can be a problem . Good luck

Parking lights stay on when the key is turned off


there are more wires that you cannot see that are melted that is causing the problem. trace all of your wires, starting with the license plate light, all the way to the headlights
