You have a blown fuse in the interior fuse block I can't remember the number. Use a test light to check them

SOURCE: Engine will crank, but will not start.

I just had this same problem on my 96 Explorer XLT. Very random when it would do it, sometimes everyday for a week or nothing for 6 months. What I found was that when this happened, when I turned the key to the on position without starting the vehicle. That the check engine light should come on and if it doesn't, that means the the computer isn't powering up. What I had to do was leave the key in the on position and pop the hood, and on the passenger side of the engine compartment, there is a power distribution block, in there is a relay for the EEC Power Relay. Now with the key on I wiggled this relay and you can hear systems under the hood kick in. Relays turning on, etc nothing actually starting to scare you though. But this lets you know that the computer is alive and running. You should now be able to turn the key to the start position and the vehicle should no crank over, but now fire and run. It took me quite a while to figure this out because it was so intermittent. In the end, I replaced the relay for the EEC Power and everything has been fine since. When the new relay was in there I could not replicate this fault as I could with the bad relay. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Ford Focus cutting out

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: what does the orange engine light mean on ford focus 02 reg

It's a check engine light, have it checked right away. If you take it to a Ford dealer, they can give you a very detailed diagnosis, however they also charge about 80 bucks just to do that. If you take it to an auto parts store (AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, NAPA, etc.) they will often be able to check for free, but it won't be the most detailed solution.

Hello my name is Sean and I have a 2002 ford focus wagon with a 2.0 motor. The blower fan for the heat and air has stoped working. I have ordered a new blower fan and resistor but havent received yet. I...


the fan motor is maybe bad, disconnect it (the motor) and put in new fuse, if its ok, then the motor is bad. the resistor only handles speeds lower than HIGH. so replace the motor first, then try it, if all speeds work, then the resistor is OK.

Vehicle Stall - Ford Focus X Reg


I will suggest some cheap areas to try first.
1.Wiring connections to your computer under the dash.
2.Check wiring to fuel pump.
3.Check black boxes under hood. They have relays and terminals may corrode.
4.Ignition switch, sometimes with heavy keychains the contacts can loosen.

Take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. When you say car cuts out, does anything work like lights, horn, radio? Please post symptoms and if anything has helped you.

Check engine light was on yesterday, off today


Ford's can store info in the computer for a while . you can take it in to a shop and have them put a code reader on the port under the dash and tell you what happened... Sometimes these codes are just a one-time event and they will clear themselves... But a reputable shop will tell you the code and if it's a worry or not. Let me know.
