Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

CAR STALLLS HI: I have a 2003 ford focus se wagon that has a problem. When you start the car alot of dash lights light up. When you run it and slow down and put on the break she stalls out and the oil light comes on. The only way to keep it from stalling when you accelarate is to put you foot on the brake and gas peddle, that seems to help it a little.

Several things can cause what you're experiencing and many of them are fairly inexpensive to fix (of course, some are not).

If you have warning lights emitting, that's a good thing. It can make diagnosing the problem much easier. You need to get a scanner (available at most auto parts stores) or take it in and have it scanned. Some parts stores (such as AutoZone) or now offering free diagnostic scanning. If you make a few calls, you'll be able to find someone to do it for next to nothing (if not nothing).

When you provide what codes are coming up when the vehicle is scanned, we can help you target the cause of your problem. I'm guessing that one of your sensors has given up.

Hope this helps and good luck!

What fuse controls the dash lights on a 2003 ford focus se


That would be the dash lamp fuse! No, just kidding. If they are not labelled, just pull one at a time (key off) and check each to see which is blown. East peasey.
