Question about 2001 Ford Focus

2000 Dodge Status SE, runs for a bit then cuts off. Had a brake light that did not work with headlights on, changed bulb, a day out so later car shutters and dies. Get it started a couple times and manage...


I think... you have an electrical grounding problem, and it's responsible for your right-side lights failing as well as being responsible for your fuel pump (in the tank) not getting any power, which would explain the car dying.

When it stutters & dies, I'll bet you can't hear the fuel pump humming, can you? But you CAN hear the fuel pump humming on days when it starts right up.

...and it's all down to a bad connection someplace, a connection that gets shaken as the car is driven. A GROUND (negative) connection, somewhere between the battery, the engine, the firewall's sheet metal, the dashboard, and the rear of the car.

Have the fuel pump pressure checked (sounds like the fuel pump is goiing out). The fuel pressure should be 46-50 psi on the 2.0L & 2.4L engines.
On the 2.0L SOHC engine fuel pressure should be from 44-55 psi.

Ford Focus ... ABS light came on and car slowly shut down


could be the altranator, this would cause all electric to not work. If you can jump start it, use a volt meter to check the battery volts should be above 14 volts running battery should test 12 volts.

During hot days in summer, car bogs and dies now in spring.


your fuel pump is going.

there was a 10 year unlimited mileage warranty on 2000 focus for this issue, but not sure if 2001 was included. The internal filters in the fuel pump clog and starve the pump. New stlye filters went into prodction but not sure if all of 2001 had the new design.
