Question about 2004 Ford Focus

2 Answers

Hi. I bought a second hand Ford Focus 2004 1.6i for my wife. The problem is that the engine light stays on. I returned it to be repaired and was told that the problem has something to do with the unleaded petrol that the vehicle is using. This does not make sense to me because none of the other vehicles that I drove had this problem! The light stayed off for about one day after receiving it back. What can be the problem and how can it be addressed? What can happen if this problem is not rectified in time? Thank you.

The check engine light is just a reminder light to remind you to change the air filter.
under the dash in the middle of the speedometer cable is a small box with a rubber
plug; insert a small screwdriver into the plug hole and, reset the light.

They are sluffing you off... have it scanned somewhere else and find out what is wrong then go back and make them fix it.

2005 focus 1.6 limp mode problem and P2100 code


Try clearing the code from the computer. If it returns again, the second hand one could be bad also! Some codes are what they call a hard code, that stays in the computer memory, and will think that the problem wasn't repaired (even though the part was replaced). Till the code is cleared from the memory, the vehicle will return to a limp mode untill the problem is resolved!!

I have a 2000 ford focus se it want stay runnig unless you hold the gas pedal down as soon as you let the gas go it stops running i changed the fuel filter did not help


first of all, if light is on have it scanned for a problem code. if no scanner all auto parts stores will scan for free. there has been over 200 recalls for 2000 ford focus, check with ford to see if this is one of the problems. god bless, this is a long run, but check and see if fuel is getting to fuel pressure regulator.

2005 ford focus 6 disk factory cd player isn't working.


That is a load of croc what the dealer told you. They service every component on the vehicles they sell. Right down to a screw you may be missing. I'm just wondering if your car is still under warranty because I know a lot of dealers that will make excuses so they don't have to pay for the work out of their own pockets.
