Question about 2007 Ford Focus (3 Door) Hatchback

1 Answer

Handbrake selfreleased I just collect my new car a ford Focus 1.6LX 1st registered Jan 2007 yesterday. This morning I parked it in my drive and after two and a half hours it rolled back into my neighbours drive crashing into her car! The car was bought from a Ford dealer with all checks done (so they assured me). Any suggestions as to why this might have happened? Thank you

The handbreak cable May have snapped if the dealership tightened it too much in the pre delivery inspection. They may not have tightened he bolt tight enough causing it to release

Check your power steering fluid level. If it is low that is probably what is causing the noise. The pump is running dry. If that is the problem it means you have a leak somewhere. I have had this issue with my Focus for awhile. I just check the fluid often. I don't fix things until I absolutely have to. Check your manual my Focus uses transmission fluid for the power steering system.

check whether the handbrake cable is working or not. Jack it up on stands and pull handbrake. then the wheel which is the problem strip it and check it inside even asking someone slowly slowly to pull the hand brake and watch to see what is working and what is not, probably the retainers are not working or no collect thickness of brake shoes etc.

Those pesky little bypass hoses in the cooling system tend to go hard and split if they are over 5 years old, allowing coolant loss which could cause your problem. Have them checked as well as making sure any other hoses and clamps are in good condition.

2003 ford focus replaced brake switch lights will work in park but when i engage revs neut drive brake lights stay ?????


I have the same problem with my 03 Focus hatchback! Someone stoppedme yesterday to tell me that they looked like they were always on when i was driving but when i was in "Park" they worked... This particular driver was also driving a focus hatchback and asked me if my Cruise Control was working.. It actually was not and he told me the same thing happened with his focus. He said it was a wire attached to the back brake lights that had broken. I have not yet gotten it fixed. has anyone else had this problem?

I have a 2007 Cobalt with manual transmission. I put the car in 1st, release the hand brake, and 'drive'... the car doesn't move. It has been sticky before after rain (due to rusted brake pads) but this is...


I think you are saying the rear brakes are locked up because of the parking brake is sticking? The few things to check is if the cables are pinched or rusted. The park brake release could be bad, but I havn't ever came across that. Possible rear brakes were so worn they have bonded to the drum. Try and "rock" the car. Release the park brake and 1st to reverse and see it it will get moving. Then check out all of the possible problems above. If the rears are locked up right now you will never get the drums off.
