Negative battery terminal

normally there is only one earth wire on a battery as all units earth through this wire to the negative terminal. I would not bother trying to reconnect the cut wires as this will lead to problems further on. Go to a wrecker that handles you model vehicle and get the positive terminal wiring loom and replace all the cut wires . Leave the negative terminal off while you are doing this.

Replace MAP sensor+2000 ford focus

You dont have a MAP sensor,,you have a MAF sensor..Try disconnecting the ground cable ,,and clean the MAF sensor..Its located close to the air filter box..Should have about 4 or 5 wires coming out of the plug..When you look inside at the sensor you will see two small wires..Spray some brake cleaner to clean..Spray about a foot from the sensor wires,,so you dont harm them..You should be able to look inside your filter box to see the little wires..You could have a bad idle air control..Thats what it sounds like to me..They get stuck and the vehicle stays idle real high..Its located on the throttle body..Pull a pic on the internet to see what it looks like..After you find it tap on it and see if the car idles down

Blowers Stopped Working Focus 99 1.6 Ghia

check for power at the blower motor. then check if it has good ground . ground wire is black/orange and goes through blower switch, then to ground. If you ground the black/orange wire at the motor and it works, you either have a bad blower switch or wire connection (I do not have a diagram for your car, this is based on a 2000 2.0 focus) the wire ends up at the left A pillar. black wire.

Ford Focus side brake lights

i have had this problem before with fords and the solution i found was to take out the door chime and clean up the conacts and then instal it again just how it was in there.....first i would disconnect the negative side of the battery before you do this because when i did it i got zapped. after you connect it try the brake lights and tell me what happens.

also #2 check for a bad ground wire (any black wire attached to the body or frame usually with a green screw) check for corrosion. if corrosion is present take off that wire and scuff up both sides of where the screw and the eyelet connect with the body then connect again.
