Ford focus petrol 03 plate won't start after rainy night

You probably could use more detail about this problem. Does the engine crank over or is the starter dead? Does this problem happen after the vehicle is parked Dry and then rained on or is the car operated in wet weather and then put away wet leading to the problem the next time you try to use the car?

One thing I have noticed is many under hood fuse boxes seem to line up with the seams of the hood and fender or firewall. With this in mind, a water spray bottle would allow you to wet each fuse area to duplicate the defect. Other things like interior leaks can leave rust trails under the dash.

What is the location of the fuse box that contains all the relays i checked the manual and it dose not show any relays does this truck even have any relays?

The newer cars and trucks usually group all or most of the relays in a single place, usually under the hood in what is known as the Power Distribution Center, or sometimes the Junction Box. It is where all the underhood fuses and relays are. If you go back earlier years (and you didn't say what year and make your ride), then often the relays may be more spaced out, with some under the hood, and others may be inside the car, under or behind the dash. Look for a fuse/relay block like the PDC-they all do have relays. Some newer ones I have heard of that are not replaceable like the common relays we deal with. But still called relays.

I have a 2004 mercury Monterey some times the car starts fine the other it will not start and when it doesnt start it does not make any kind if noise what could it be

Next time it happens, hit the starter with a hammer or rod. If it starts, the starter is bad. Could check grounds also. My guess is the starter. Especially if it sounds funny or drags( goes slow)

1993 dodge Grand Cherokee with a 318 hard starting when cold until things under hood click and fuel pump runs.

Your jeep ecu is in need of repair. It has what is referred to as the delayed check engine light problem. If you'll notice, next time you try starting the jeep, it will not start when the check engine light finally comes on, on the dash. The fuel pump will only come on when the ecu finally energizes the relays, and that's when all the clicking starts. Look on ebay for an ecu repair service.

Try testing the relays under the hood. I had a 89 hatchback and it done the same thing. I replaced a relay I think it may be for the fuel and it worked fine.

1997 chevy s10 blazerdash wont light up when key

the dash sound's like a fuse, check the fuse box under the hood and in the door jamb on the side of the dash, also check your fuel filter and fuel pump, im betting on the pump because i have a 2001 chevy blazer that has had two replaced and it has 233000km on it!

No power to the fuel pump

well actually there are 2 things that can cause this.. I'll list them both and the fix,,

1.) fuse.. There are 1 / 2 fuses that protect the fuel pump.. The first is the in fuse panel under the hood. Under the fuse panel cover is a diagram showing which fuse is which.. Simply replace that fuse..
the second fuse if any (some vehicles have them) is in the kick panel under the dash board. Just like the fuse box under the hood, the cover has a diagram showing which fuse is which .. simply replace it..

2.) the second most common problem is the relay.. There are 2 locations that the relay will be ,, The first is in the fuse panel under the hood. look at the diagram to determine the fuel pump relay and change it.. The second location id under the dashboard.. Locate the cars computer under the dash,, and you will notice 4 - 5 wires connecting to a relay box,, thats the pump relay,, simply open the box and replace the relay..

Now if both thge above isnt your problem the relay is controlled by the ignition switch (tumbler), now what happens is this trips the relay to tun on the pump,, The switch may be shorting or damaged or the wires fallen off,, replace the switch,, (this is a very rare issue)..

good luck..
