Question about 2004 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Engine's orange warning light coming on.

The orange warning light on my ford focus stays on and the car is very sluggish with a high petrol consumption. The DTC code reads 9356 which translates as "Ignition Run circuit open". What does it mean and how can I fix it?

There is a problem with the electronics on your vehicle. Your vehicle is sluggish because it has gone into limp mode. This allows the vehicle to run, but run poorly so you can get it somewhere to be fixed. I'm sorry but I don't have a code book for Fords. But, you can call a Ford dealership and ask for the service department and have them look up the code by number and they can tell you the definition of the code. But, it can relate to many different systems linked to your problem. Electronic parts are very expensive and if you just guess at them it could be costly.
Keep in mind if you buy a part that is electronic and it does not solve the problem they will not allow you to return it. Hope this gives you some guidance to your dilemma.

try the air filter first and the intake.the spark plugs then and after all go to a garage for checking compression timing and the head gasket.

Engine chugging as if not getting enough petrol, now engine warning lights stays on while engine is running (ford focus1.4 2001)


there are several reasons that this could be hapening, firstly check that there are no signs of wear on the HT leads, check for worn/ damaged spark plugs.... air filter blocked. if the engine light stays on then the ECU is reading a fault, possibly has gone into safe mode! the best thing i can advice is to take the car into a garage and have a fault diagnostic run on the car! this will hopefully tell you where the problem is!

hope this helps.

Orange light


This sounds like your "check engine" light. Best bet is to take it to your mechanic where they should have the right diagnostic tools to find where the problem is. - Neil
