Question about 2000 Ford Focus
I need to see a diagram of the dashboard and warning lights so I can fix
what it is or fill what ever it is it just started flashing today 3 times today
Wow. Ok. That was a pretty rude response you received there form r_clark. Let's see if we can find a reasonable way to help you.
When you first get in your car, instead of starting it right up, turn the key to the "on (or run)" position. With the key on, but the engine off, most of your warning lights will light up and stay lit. Some may go off after a few seconds. Draw a quick sketch of the layout of your dashboard before doing this. Then, with the warning lights all on, jot the name and location of each one on your sketch. The next time you are driving, when the light flickers on and off, you should have a fair idea of what it is.
Also, if you are in the process of actually starting the car when this happens, keep in mind that when you turn the key through "on" to "start" and then release it, the vehicle's self test for the dash will turn all those warning lights on, then off, briefly. Certain important lights will come on last and only flicker on briefly. As long as they are doing that during start up, they are ok, and it just means the lights are working properly. If they are actually flickering on while driving or idling, then you have a problem, but likely not a serious one yet.
Hope this is helpful, good luck, and let me know how it works out!
