Normally, there is no interdependency between the starter and the overdrive button.

However, assuming the problem could be a fuse; The fuses are usually located on the drivers side of the dash, on the lower portion on the dash. You should see a detent place to pull out a small cover about 5 inches square. When that is removed you will see a bunch of fuses, perhaps 10 to 15. There is usually a little tool on the back side of the cover you removed that aids in removing each fuse. If you pull each fuse and hold it up to the light you will see a small piece of wire. If you can see a gap in the wire, that's the bad fuse. Be careful when you reinsert the a good fuse, because there are usually some blank slots and it would be easy to put a good fuse back in the wrong slot.
If you find a bad fuse, there might be some good ones on the back of the cover you removed. If not, you can get a replacment at any auto store. The fuses are colored coded so be sure the replacement fuse is the same color as the bad one.

Hope this helps

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.

My 2000 ford focus wont shift. Its not the transmission because I can shift it manually a the transmission. Could this be the linkage?


I think your shifter cable broke go back to the linkage at the trans and find the bracket the cable attaches to and try to pull the cable through if you can it broke that's why I think the shifter lever is now all over the place also go to the bottom off the steering column it may have just come loose at the bracket inside the car good luck Adam you'll find it Stephen

I have a 2001 ford focus, my wife spilt water on the gear shifter and now the overdrive light will not go off even if the button is pushed


First of all...water and electrical connections don't mix well. Since the overdrive button is located on the left side of the shifter, and your wife spilled water on the shifter, the water has likely caused an electrical short.

With the ignition key off, try using compressed air to blow out any possible water or moisture around the shifer button and at the base of the shifter itself. Since the overdrive button has electrical connections inside the shifter, the water has probably caused a short. (I repeat...water and electrical connections don't mix well) If this doesn't cure the problem, you may need to disassemble the shifter mechanism and check for water or moisture. The electrical connections or wiring may be wet inside the shifter, which is likely causing the problem. Blow the areas out with compressed air and make sure everything is clean and dry. Then reassemble the shifter mechanism and reheck to see if this cures the problem.

Good Luck!

I have a 2003 LR Ford Focus Manual 1.8. While driving and changing gears, I lost all gears the car is is neutral with no feeling of selecting any gears.


sounds like your shifter cable came off at the transmission or the cable is broke.You hould be able to see the cable on top of the trans. Have some try to shift while you see if the cable moves.
