Purchased focus sport 2006 model no service manual. Mileage 43,000 kms. Need to know service intervals either time/mileage perhaps a copy of the service schedule will suffice.


These maintenance intervals come from the maintenance interval calculator
at www.autozone.com, using a starting point of 25,800 miles (43000 km), and
assuming 1000 miles (1666 km) driven per month, and "severe driving conditions," which
are actually normal usage characteristics, such as frequent short trips, urban driving, waiting in traffic, driving in hot weather, trips under 16 km in cold weather, etc.

There a yellow triangle light on dash


This triangle might be the warning light that the traction control system is switched off. to switch traction control back on again, locate the button to the lower right hand side of the steering wheel, down beside the headlamp levelling switch. The button should read VSA OFF. With the engine running press this button and the lamp should go out. Note that in slippery conditions when the front wheels start to spin this triangle will flash as the traction control kicks in. Hope this helps. Stuartie.

Check engine light and TC light came on and car lost engine. Still had power steering and brakes. Have attempted to restart but will not. Any ideas?


I am more familiar with Ford products. If you have a cutoff for the traction control on your dash you want to remove a battery cable to get the Engine light to clear.

Reattach the cable after 10 minutes and turn off the traction control. Then try starting the car. If that does not work disconnect the fuse to the traction control and then try starting again.

All the traction devices interrupt the engines as part of stopping the wheels from spinning. The Traction Control on yours is stuck. If you can eliminate that feature you may get your engine to run again.

Trac on does not help traction whatsoever totally helpless when snow or ice---not sure it has worked since new when press steering column button to turn trac off---will show trac off on dash----and when...


The traction light only shows when it is turned off. If the traction control wasn't work, the van would show a code aka engine light would come on. Tracation Control only works at speeds below 35 mph.

My lexus just quit working, it will crank but die when you put it in gear, the check engine light came on with a code of VSC any ideas. Thanks.


Saw this on a Lexus user club site ---
  • Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) senses the onset of loss of lateral traction and helps the driver stay on track. Input from four wheel-speed sensors, a yaw-rate (directional) sensor, a deceleration sensor, and a steering-wheel-angle sensor is communicated to the VSC computer. The system has the ability to reduce power and to control the brake actuator. Working with both ABS and TRAC, the VSC system helps the driver to compensate for loss of lateral traction, which can cause skids and loss of vehicle control. Lexus Vehicle Skid Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control.
However, it appears Lexus owners who have reported this sort of problem did not have to do anything to fix except - things like .. uncap gas cap and put it back, remove battery leads for about 10 minutes and put back, tighten air filter hose ...all wierd.

Have you checked your owner's manual ?
