SOURCE: Ford Focus Estate Diesel, 51 plate.

It turned out that the bulbs in the headlights had gone simultaneously. Luckily my son is knowledgeable about cars. He came over and figured out the problem. I had to purchase new bulbs, then my son had to practically dismantle the front of the car to change the bulbs. It was a complicated operation just to replace bulbs, and something I would not have been able to tackle myself. If it had not been for my son. I would have had to spend a fortune at a garage for a mechanic to replace the bulbs for me. What should have been a relatively simple task has become a mammoth operation. In years gone by it would have been a simple task that I could have performed myself. Why do manufacturers design cars so that it is so complicated just to replace the bulbs. There are so many things that have developed faults on this Ford Focus, I will never have another one.

SOURCE: Charging Light On After Replacing Alternator/Battery1999Windstar

Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.

To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.

SOURCE: what Bosch super 4 spark plug fits a Ford Focus 1.6 zetec.

my advise don't get those, they don't work as well as you think they do.
if you think about it if they are so much better why don't drag racers use them?
because they actually block the ignition point.

just get the factory style plugs and you will be better off.

I have similar problem, I repaired the alternator using a voltage regulator and brushholder (new) taken from a new alternator for a Ford Fiesta (I think) when I refitted it the charging light still stayed on. I cleaned the multiplug where it goes through the bulkhead to the PCU and the charge light now goes out but the headlights now flicker and it seems that the voltage is varying or 'pulsing'. I do not know where the fault is now and am looking at an expensive visit to a Main Dealer.Any suggestions or help appreciated

sounds like your alternator isnt functioning correctly.
you can have this tested at a local garage, normally for free. when the engine is running, it should show around 14 amps on a multimeter. also check the battery is serviced. check the fluid levels and a full charge
