Nope not a fuse prob.. most likely the fuel pump itself. there is a small chance it could be in the wiring back to the pump also but the pump is most likely the prob.

I have a 2005 Ford Focus and the fuel light stays on. It is very dim, even when I shut the car off.


Principles of Operation
NOTE: When installing a new instrument cluster, the new instrument cluster must be configured. Refer to Section 418-01 .
The instrument cluster is a hybrid electronic cluster (HEC) which receives and outputs information using both hardwired circuitry and the controller area network (CAN) communication circuits.
It is very important to understand:
  • where the input originates from.
  • all the information necessary for a feature to operate.
  • which module(s) receive(s) the input or command message.
  • if the module that received the input controls the output of the feature, or if it sends a message over the CAN to another module.
  • which module controls the output of the feature.
The instrument cluster carries out a prove-out when the ignition switch is turned from the OFF to the RUN position to verify the integrity of the warning indicators. The charging system warning indicator, the low oil pressure warning indicator and the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illuminate when the key is turned to the ON position, and then turn off when the engine is started. The seat belt warning indicator proves-out for 60 seconds and then turns off, or turns off when the seat belt is fastened. The following indicators prove-out when the key is turned to the ON position:
  • door ajar warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • O/D OFF indicator (3 seconds)
  • air bag warning indicator (6 seconds)
  • brake warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • door ajar warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • shift up indicator (3 seconds)
  • low fuel warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • traction control indicator (3 seconds)
  • check fuel cap indicator (3 seconds)
  • passive anti-theft system (PATS) indicator (3 seconds)
Low Fuel Warning Indicator
The instrument cluster utilizes fuel level data supplied by the hardwired fuel pump module to control the low fuel warning indicator, which illuminates when the fuel drops to a pre-determined level.
Your best bet is to take this to the Ford dealer , unless you have Ford IDS - factory scan tool to diagnose this
Your best bet

Instrument panel brake light stays on what does it mean


The brake warning light is for the hydraulic system.
It could be low on fluid or several other things. There may also be a warning light for a dead brake or tail light.

I have a 2003 ford focus SE. I am having problems


In my opinion it sounds like a problem from inside the fuel tank but don't quote me on this. With multiple sensors and switches related to fuel movement throughout the vehicle you're truly better off having a professional deal with this, unfortunately it will cost a few dollars.
