Do the headlights come on? maybe the battery ran dead for some reason while you were working on the car.

Get a jump start & see if it starts then. Call AAA or the Ford assistance number in your owner manual if you don't have jumper cables. It should be free.

2005 Jeep Wrangler Heater and Cigarette Lighters not working.


May help - fuses supply power but also needed is earth return to battery. This is usually black wires running from device to the car metal. To diagnose you need a multimeter. Check body of cigar lighter is connected to the chasis with meter on ohms. (continuity test) good is zero ohms. If earth problem, check under dash to ensure all earth wires connect to metal chassis. Then with ignition on, check centre pin at back inside cigar lighter has 12 volts to side.
If not then check fuse has 12 volt to it, Now you can get to the fan, repeat all the tests on fan. Best wishes, its tedious work.

05 focus hard to start on cold mornings


Check the battery connections for "crud" and clean them if necessary. Also, if you're still running the original battery, it's likely time for a replacement. Three years is normal for an OE battery, four is great, five is fantastic, and you're at nearly six years . . .

You can temporary run one heater hose into the other- either just take one side off the car and route the one hose right back into the water pump or - you can get a kit -
Either way - now you will need to replace the heater core inside the car.

Heater takes forever to start blowing hot air


You probably have a bad thermostat - the one that controls water flow to the radiator. It's supposed to stay closed until the engine reaches proper operating temperature. But when they fail, it's usually in the open position so the water circulate to the radiator all the time. The engine takes longer to warm up, and you shiver in the meantime. It does eventually get hot - it just takes a lot longer. I bet if you replace that thermostat you'll be toasty in no time. As for the cigarette lighter, your portable heater may have blown the fuse.

Apart from the fuse box in the engine bay there is a fuse repository behind the coin alcove underneath the boot release. Fuse 3 for the lighter (I think) was blown. I replaced it and now the climate control console responds and the display lights up.
