Question about 2000 Ford Focus
To remove the evaporator. you have the instrument panel and all its equipment wires and cables to remove as a unit, since there are so many components in play there, i suggest using a service manual for the step by step, with drawings. you can photo copy some manuals at the library, or borrow them, or print the info from the automotive database on the computers there. chilton and haynes manuals can be loaned when requested. since the refrigerant will escape when ac lines are opened, they can capture and recycle it, before, at a shop.
when you are ready to refill, you can arrange to return to them for the refill.
read the complete procedure in the text before beginning. this helps you plan how its going to be as you have it apart. arrange for tools, space, help, as required.
get an estimate from a few shops in case its easier to have them do it during the a/c service. knowing where hidden screws are and what style of fasteners you will encounter takes experience, or careful step by step methodical disassembly. instruction for cables, their adjustment, knowledge of vacuum system, electrical connector disassembly, will all come into play. you will have to detach the steering column and lower it. some cars have more room with the seats out, others you leave them in to hold up the instrument panel while its pulled.
you will be draining the coolant and disconnecting the heater.

its aprocess of tracing the wires on the circuit with a tester from the power sorce & checking along its path to the other ends!
a bad earth or ground can also cause loss of continuity [result looks like no power]

Check Fuse box Number 30 which is a 10Amp fuse
& number 15 which is a 7.5amp fuse.
you met have a blow fuse.
Did you check the dimmer on the head light switch Pull out to see if you have power on cable color orange / blue. (Pin 9)
If this is good
Pull cluster out to see if you have power on plug pin 3 in instrument cluster this there..
If you have power
than replace the llumination bulb or cluster.
Very rare to find a ground poblem here.
