Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Parking lights stay on when the key is turned off

I have a 2001 ford focus zx3. The headlight wires melted from the lightswitch to the fuse box. I replaced them and the parking lights stay on whenever i turn the key off. Now two other wires melted behind the panel by your left foot on the drivers side of the car and my speedometer,odometer, gas gauge, tach, and my heat guage quit working. The lights dim when you turn the headlights switch off and the headlights and fog lights work right but the other lights don't.

    When you originally replaced the wires did you make sure everything was grounded? and did you replace the right wires? and what were the other two wires you said were melted behind the kick panel?

There are more wires that you cannot see that are melted that is causing the problem. trace all of your wires, starting with the license plate light, all the way to the headlights

I have no dash lights, tail lights, or parking lights... I checked all the fuses and they are all good... I hooked a power line up to where the fuses belong and all the lights work when i turn on the key...


U.S. Focus?

You have at least 4 fuses in the Battery fuse box under the hood to check, plus the ones in the dash panel fuse box. Did you check them all in both places?

I have a 2001 Focus Zx3. The dashlights, parking


Sounds like a short circuit here ? You will need to locate the short circuit . Most probable is the tail lamps and their connections , then number plate lights , then any hinged wiring going from body to a door or trunk (ie No plate illum lights) area . Sometimes the dash dimmer can be a problem . Good luck
