Question about 2006 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Problem with 2007 Ford Focus. Battery regularly runs down because digital display screen stays illuminated on dashboard console even when engine has been disengaged and powered off. May be linked to faulty key fob. Dealers have said that ignition has built in key which must be replaced with ordinary key barrel and key. Have you ever heard of this problem before? Is it common in this model? Is it a manufacturing fault?

Ford focus tdci not starting and white smoke coming out of the exhaust

It is a clear case of the glow plugs malfunction. It had happened with my neighbor who tried to start his diesel focus one day.
Even jump starting with another battery didn't solve the starting problem.

You could also check the EGR valve for damages and if you want to save a couple of bucks, then go in for used parts for the focus from Good used Focus Stuff

I'm not very familiar with your vehicle dashboard cluster, but it does sound to me like what you are seeing is a light that is programmed to come on as a reminder for regularly scheduled maintenance intervals that go by mileage, such as the oil.
Other things it might be for is tire rotation, transmission fluid and emissions control components. There then would be a procedure to follow for resetting it so the light will be off and the computer will restarting counting mileage again toward the next reminder. However, if you have recently or within the last few thousand miles have done regular maintenance and it is running normally, then you can ignore the reminder without any problems...other than the annoying light.

My 04 Ford Focus the battery light keeps coming on & going off, have fitted a new alternator belt but it didn't solve the problem. The battery connections are good. Also the rev counter, speedo & mileage clock keep going haywire when the battery light is on. Do you think it is the alternator? Or is it some other common problem?

My 2007 ford focus, everytime I turn my car off the fan is still running for more than 15 minutes. Do I need to get my car serviced and will it run my battery down?

I wouldn'tworry too much about the fan running after you turn off the vehicle, most newer cars are equipped to do that. As far as running your battery down, the power that the fan uses after the vehicle is turned off will actually run off the surface charge of the battery, you shouldn't have any problems with it draining your battery. Hope this helps.
