Ford focus cruise control

Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.

Whats the fuse to change in a ford focus zx3 hatchback year 2000 for the change engine light

when i was working in my local ford dealership the only way we were able to remove that light was to access the vehicles ECU and delete the trouble codes that were on there. provided there is no actual problems with your vehicle clearing the codes should solve the problem. if there is more to it then the codes will reapear and bring that light back up.
Generally your local mechanic or ford dealership will have the scan tool required to remove the codes
i hope i have helped

Ford C-max acceleration problem

What they mean by clearing the codes is your vehicles computer should have turned on a light on your instrument panel to alert you of a problem. The computer stores these problems for service to find with their gauges. When the battery is disconnected for 15 minutes it can clear most codes, leaving a blank slate to record the newest problems. The service people could have cleared the codes for you on your way out and they really did not help you .
Check under the hood for labels for vacuum line routing, and vacuum lines hanging off or in the wrong positions. Check your transmission fluid levels. Sometimes vehicles use vacuum lines to make transmission parts work.
