Tony-

Sounds like the computer engine management has gone to bypass/limp mode (i.e.: it isn't doing anything other than providing the very basics for the engine to run [poorly!]).

You need to have the car scanned to determine which trouble code(s) have been set and hopefully point you in the direction of the cause.

The good news is that some of the larger auto parts suppliers now offer free diagnostic scanning, so get on the telephone and try and locate one of these, get it scanned, and go from there.

Hope this helps, good luck, and keep us posted!

Engine man light flickering and car has lost power and is juddering.Ford focus 1.6 petrol 54reg


There is probably a sensor failure or other fault. When the engine management light is on, the ECU goes into get you home mode. I suggtes scanned the PCM to know what fault code is stored there and (with this code number) we could send additional details.

Keep in touch.

check the wiring to the plug conector on the coil pack as the wires usually brake.

Ive got a focus 1.6 petrol the engine managment comes on hooked it up to computer and it says the cam shaft position sensor is it a common fault and will it probley be the sensor faulty?


Hi Smith,

This is a very common fault with most new fords. I have had to replace mine in a Mondeo MK3 ST and its only done 35000 miles. Very easy to fit as well i just searched on google and found some picks on how to fit and costs less than £20.

Cheers,

Toon.
