One feeds the starter the other goes to the power distribution center. You might be able to cut off the corroded end the best way to go is new from ford but that cable assy is expensive

Back near side door lock latch won't fully open preventing me from opening door from inside or outside on 2005 Ford focus possible causes


The most common cause for this is the door opening lever on the lock assembly is sitting slightly between the open and closed position and will not allow the lock arm to operate properly. I am not positive, but I think the lever is cable operated by the inside handle. You may be able to remove the inside handle assembly and access this cable and slide it in and out to see if the door lock will open

Electric latch on the rear Hatch door will not unlock


I guess ford was trying to make a couple more bucks by not putting key locks on all doors. Anyway, if you crawl inside and pop the small cover(about 2"x2") off the inside of the hatch where the latch is located you can reach in with a screwdriver and manually move control arms. The lever on the back/far side of assembly is in the locked position, you need to move to the opposite side left or right of it's current position, this will unlock the latch and should allow you to open the door. You mave have to pop acutor arm loose to move it. My problem ended up being the outside cover {license plate frame)seal had been damaged by a ford mechanic, that or it was defective. Water got in and damaged the the lock acuator. Had to replace entire assembly as ford does'nt offer just the acuator. Sealed the outside cover with clear silione.

2009 Ford Focus, Emergency Trunk release was pulled when heavy backpack was thrown in trunk and now trunk won't fully close. Car is showing the "trunk ajar" button. Is there any way to fix it?


yes. The Ford family has had this issue for a few years now. it is caused when there is too much in the trunk or for the sable wagons the storage area. when the trunk lid or hatch back is slammed repeatedly, it can cause the steel stud that latches the trunk shut to bend a little. the easiest way to fix this issue is to get a medium to large pry bar and shift it back into position. this will cause the sensor switch (for the door a jar lamp) to go out when it is shut.

MY DISTRABUTION DIAL FOR DEF.,VENT, ETC IS IN DEFROST AND WON'T CHANGE. THE DIAL TURNS BUT NOTHING CHANGES. I NEEN SOME ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO TO FIND PROBLEM AND FIX. THANKS GENO


Here is the info. I hope the pictures show up. please rate assistance. thx.

Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the function selector switch position. Two airflow mode doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing. The function selector switch/cable assembly is used to position these airflow mode doors. Refer to Section 412-00 for description and operation of each of the system functions.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Function Selector Cable Assembly
The function selector cable assembly moves the airflow mode doors to the desired position using a 2-sided pull-pull type cable assembly. The function selector controls the cable movement. The end of the cable assembly attaches to the airflow mode door/temperature blend door actuating assembly which transfers the cable movement to the 2 airflow mode doors.
An electrical switch is incorporated into the function selector to notify the A/C switch assembly if DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected. When DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected, the A/C switch assembly will disable the RECIRC request button and send an A/C request to the powertrain control module (PCM) regardless of the A/C request button indicator ON/OFF status.
