Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Engine Fault light illuminates. Ford KA Collection

After being driven through deep water on the road, the engine was running rough and engine warning light came on.

Coil, spark plugs and HT leads replaced and engine running OK, however light is still on, even after running for 50 miles.

Garage has since repaired the computer and the light came on again after a few miles. Back to garage and new coil and spark plugs fitted AGAIN! No change. Engine runs OK. Light still on!

Garage seem to be grasping at straws. Any idea's please

    As the car is not mine, i have not seen the code, however I do believe that various codes come up every time it has been back to the garage. Some totally wrong, such as flat battery??

2003 Ford ka what colour is the wire for the alternator warning light on dash cluster


There isn't one ! This vehicle relies on serial data communication . The PCM sends an message on the data bus to the microprocessor inside the instrument cluster . The PCM controls the operation of the charging system warning indicator in the instrument cluster. The PCM is therefore responsible for turning the warning indicator off after the engine is started and illuminating it under fault conditions (when the generator is not generating the correct amount of current with the engine running). The warning indicator will also be illuminated by the PCM at key ON engine OFF, and stall conditions.
Charging System Warning Indicator
The instrument cluster receives the charging system status from the PCM over the SCP or CAN communication network. The PCM controls the charging system and the charging system warning indicator. The PCM is therefore responsible for turning the lamp off once the system is running and illuminating it under fault conditions (including stall conditions).
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

Spanner showing on dash when engine running vauxhall vectra c


VECTRA CAR WITH SPANNER WARNING LIGHT This Vauxhall Vectra car with spanner warning light illuminates or flashes yellow. Light will illuminate for around 3 seconds when the ignition is switched on. If the fault light illuminates whilst the engine is running, this signifies a fault within the engine or gearbox electronics system. The system will switch to emergency mode where fuel consumption may increase and the vehicles drivability reduced. A Vauxhall workshop must be consulted. If the light flashes whilst the engine is running, this signifies a fault within the electronic immobiliser system and the engine will not be able to be restarted.

Check engine light has gone on, what could be wrong


A check engine light could be illuminated for 100+ different reasons probably, can you describe more about any problems you might be experiencing along with that warning light? Knocking sounds, engine running rough, poor acceleration ect. Also, does the check engine light blink at any point in time? If your vehicle is in operable condition you can take your vehicle to certain part stores such as Autozone that offers free code scans to better diagnose warning codes.

Engine cuts off while drving. May be related, the warning beeper randomly beeps especially when on a rough road or going around curves to the right, not left ??


Check the coolant level in the radiator at the cap as it may be the low coolant warning system that is activated as the water runs away from it as you change direction. If it is serious enough the engine light will come on and the CPU will send the engine into limp home mode.

Engine runs rough at idle, and wont exceed 3500 rpm, ever.


Is this the 5-cylinder engine? Is the 'check engine' light illuminated on the dash? If the 'check engine' light is illuminated, does it ever blink while the engine is running rough?

Hi i had a similar problem with a peugeot 607 it turned out to be a faulty brake light switch that was sometimes not working and so confusing the asr system. It also left no fault code but did activate the asr warning lamp when it was faulty. try checking the brake light switch for an intermittent fault. Hope this helps
