    i know its not a fuse i checked all the fuses so its probably a wire, because when i turn it off the right back speaker makes a shorting out sound. about the thumping how can i check the cv shaft is worn out it looks perfect on the outsode i lifted it and turned each wheel and it dint make any sound. and what do you mean on #2 when you said (on its way out, or added resistance to the system, bad switch or flasher.)

    the speakers are fine i tried them out on my other focus, so now im shure its a wire. the thumping sound might be the old lady! ha ha!, i did hit a deer a couple of months ago but the only new thing is the radio problem the rest was there before that

You dont wont much do you?
the radio speakers on the drivers side have a broken wire in them,,or its broken speakers

the flashers on the left side have a dud bulb maybe in a side repeter flasher or one bulb has a bum earth
of course it could be that its the right hand side thats flashing faster?

as for the thumping sounds,,, try looking at the suspension it could be wish bone bushes,, shockers,, tyers,,wheels,,drive shafts,,cv joints or some other thing hanging off,,its hard to say,,,
it could be the old lady you run over trying to tell you she,s still under the car??? ha ha! sorry! i just need to here the sounds to realy know what it is,
but i hope i helped you in some way,,,,

    i think mechanic 144 is saying about the flashers is he fells its a bad earth or there is a poor joint in the wire to the bulbs on that side,,,

    i think he could be on to some thing as well, if the light holder has a bad earth then it could well upset the flashing rate it can slow them down or speed them up? as could a bum bulb try new bulbs first one at a time,,the flasher relay works both sides,, try it with 4 way flashers on,,,do they flash right then? clearly the radio speakers have a problem with the wireing to them it could be there crossed over on eack speaker inside the doors causing a short,

    bad news for the radio out put stage,,,you can check the drive shafts by jacking the car up and griping both sides of the joints and twisting them away from each other, if there is play in them there worn out, also try driving round on full lock if they click thats also wear,,, as for the knocking,,???????????????????????????

    i told you its an old deer? she,s still under there!!! ha ha,,

1) could be, a bad fuse that controls the other speaker, or a broken wire in the door harness..get it diagnosed,

2) could be a bad bulb sitll, on its way out, or added resistance to the system, bad switch or flasher.

3) could be a bad CV shaft...it could be just that worn out...

2003 Ford Focus. We inserted wrong ford key. Now the correct key won't turn when inserted. Anything we can do?


My opinion is that the only thing you can do is replace the ignition lock cylinder. I have seen stuck cylinders on the Ford Focus many times, and never successfully got one unstuck. This is a fairly common problem with the Focus.

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.

Ford Focus Engine Light


Start by getting either a mechanic or someone with an OBDII scanner to read the code so you know where to start. Lots of time a loose gas cap will cause a "Evap system small leak" code which illuminates the check engine light for a while. Other than that I can't help you much without knowing what code comes up.
