Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Accidentaly shorted battery now indicaters stay on permanant and diagnostic is saying battery has low voltage
Well, I'm not an electrical phenom,but if it were my car,I'd check that the car has at least 13 to 14 volts coming from the battery while car is idling with all accessories off. If not, after stopping the engine, I'd take the battery terminal loose and test the battery voltage first to make sure there are over 12 volts being put out.IF less, you probably blew a cell,which means a new battery.
If it checks okay, take the battery to auto-zone for a test to see if it has enough cranking power.
If the battery checks okay,and the car is charging okay at 13 to 15 volts,
it might have reset itself while the cables were disconnected.
There are fuse links and things that might enter into play also.
A good mechanic can troubleshoot it.don-ohio (:)
