Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I did a really bad thing...I used some jumper cables on my car that the casing was cracked from the heat and some of the wires where exposed.
Well the wires touched when I went to jump my 2003 Ford Focus ZTS and the car completely shut down. So I bought a new battery and the car starts fine now but automatic shift control knob is stuck, the button wont go in to let me shift out of park. I asked what the problem might be but all I was told was that I need to replace the Interlocking Shift Fuse, is this correct? and if so where at do I pull out the old one and does it cost a lot to replace?
Also, I was told that the problem might be a reset, and is there a reset button somewhere in the car for me to do this with?
Thanks for all your help...P.S. all the other things in the car work and none of the warning lights in the dash are on.
While sitting in the car, in front of your left knee, there is a removable panel. That removable panel covers the fuse block. take a small pair of needle nose pliers or a fuse puller and check the fuses. The inside of the removable panel will show what fuse is for what circuit. If you can't determine which fuse it is check all of them. Yes, the information you received was correct and it should not cost alot to replace the bad fuse. There are also fuses that are in the long black box to the right of your brake fluid container (while facing the front of the car) under the hood. go to the drivers side of the car while the hood is open and there is a latch for that long black box. once you get it open, it has both fuses and relays in it. Inside the top of the box is a diagram that tells what fuse controls what circuit.
