    I have a 2003 focus and have problems with the transaxle light also. I will be driving on hwy and the transaxle light comes on and lose power for few seconds then is fine. It will do this problem a few more times then fine for a day or two, then start up again. I just starting having another problem with it stalling when I leave a stop light or from a stop sign. It will stall and will resart, but when I put it in drive and hit the gas pedal it will stall. When I put it in reverse it will go in reverse and not stall. After a few attemps to accelerat., it will finally go forward.
    The dealer has my car for three weeks and they actually had the problem happen to them , but got noe code so they dont know what to do.
    This is a very dangerous situation and Ford just dont care.
    Anyone ever fix a problem like this please reply to this message

First I would find a garage that doesn't charge for diagnostics. I don't unless it is an electrical issue, which I usually fix when I find it. Second you have to get the coolant leak taken care of. This could be the entire problem. If you have overheated your car, it could have blown an intake manifold gasket or a head gasket letting coolant into the cylinders. This would pop 02 and misfire codes. This would also account for the jerking and hard starts. Also just a note get rid of the bosch plugs. Worthless. Go with what the manufacturer recommends. they may cost more but well worth it.

In order for the alternater to charge there has to be some current in the battery; it may needan external charge boost to do the testing. Since replacements have already been made there must be an internal current drain on the battery Since the radio will not shut off this would be the most likely component to start checking. Suggest you locate and remove the appropriate fuse and see if the battery discharges after it has beencharged -up If this solves the problem then obviously the radio needs to be replaced. A test light inserted between the negative post of the battery and the negative battery cable will indicate battery drain but some is normal due to to computer keep-a- live and security systems.

My 04 Ford Focus the battery light keeps coming on & going off, have fitted a new alternator belt but it didn't solve the problem. The battery connections are good. Also the rev counter, speedo & mileage clock keep going haywire when the battery light is on. Do you think it is the alternator? Or is it some other common problem?

Have a 2000 Ford focus zts battery light keeps coming on.


This is often mistaken as an alternator or battery problem. If you also are having a problem with the engine idling a bit low (less than 600rpm) when stopped and in Drive without the a/c on, it is likely a throttle body sensor issue. Because the sensor is bad, the engine idles lower than it should and will cause the 'battery light' to come on and go off seemingly randomly.
