SOURCE: Engine's orange warning light coming on.

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.

SOURCE: Ford Focus Engine System Fault warning light

yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!

You are not the only one. Ive met a good many of Saturn owners (most were 2001 L300 drivers) but they were plagued with the problem you have and practically identical codes. The following remedies have been known to work:

1. Replacement Battery Cable
2.Replacement ECU Wiring Harness
3. Replacement of ECU

SOURCE: Battery reconnection problems on a ford focus diesel 1.8 tdci

The clicking noise is normal when a battery is almost fully discharged - it's the starter solenoid making the noise. The gauges will react accordingly.
You have to ask yourself why the battery has run down before ordering a new one. Is it very old, is the alternator not charging, is the drive belt loose and so on.
Try putting the battery on charge and if possible remove the top so you can see the acid levels. Top up with distilled water and leave on full charge overnight. Then check and see if bubbles are coming from each cell (do not smoke anywhere near a battery being charged). If no or few bubbles are coming from one cell then the battery is defective. If you think it looks ok then put it back on the car. Get someone to operate the starter and look closely at the battery cells. If one of them is fizzing away then the battery is definitely defective.
However, if all appears well then check the play on the drive belt. If that's ok then consult an auto electrician to carry out a more detailed analysis.

Diesel. Reduce power lite turned on. Shut off engine and started back up - lite is off. Can it be driven?


Jerry, Drive to a good shop. So many things can cause reduced power light unfortunately. The first step would be to get the truck hooked up to a scanner/computer and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. One thing that you could try is to drain the water from the water separator that is mounted on the frame under drivers front door. If the PCM picks up on water, power is reduced until water is removed/drained. It could be an exhaust sensor that is reading faulty. Unfortunately from here its impossible to tell you exactly what the fault is because there are just so many engine sensor inputs that could cause your problem. Check the attached links, forums,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have ford focus xr5 turbo lv 2008 after service due the engine light comes up on the dashboard and some time flashing and when i press the accelator in drive doesn't go fast and don't get pick up ...? ?


Sounds like you have a serious engine malfunction and your ECU is putting vehicle in safe mode which is limp mode, no performance. You have to pull codes to see what the issue is, or if mechanical, look for loose hoses which is most likely the culprit which is sending signal to your ECU tripping limp mode.

How do I fix engine system fault and acceleration reduced in my ford focus 2008 model?


Check the OBD Codes & refer to factory diagnostic
manuals, for trouble charts

The APP not likely will ever fail,too redundant
Not likely the Throttle Body is bad either

Check for cylinder misfires & other issues
