Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Ford Focus 2000 - Electrical fault I recently bought a second hand Focus 2.0 Zetec only to find nearly everything electrical inside the vehicle doesn't work. These include: Rear wiper, front intermitent wiper, interior light, air con, elec mirrors, rear demist, front demist. From internet blogs I have seen similar problems and people mention a delay Relay (TCM?) or a grounding issue. Can anyone out there assist?

    I have a 2003 ford focus with 78000 miles on it. While riding down the road at highway speeds if in the day the head lights blink. At the same time the dash lits instrument cluster speedometer guage and all other dash guages blink rapidly. If i monitor the battey while this is happening the battery is around 11.5 to 12.6 volts. if i look at the cigarette lighter plug the voltage wildly swings up to 19 volts an down to 5 or 6 volts. Sometimes it gets so bad the engine cuts out.The first few times it happened I changed out the battery and it quit for about a year. I just changed out the battery 3 months ago and it is happening again.

    I had an F150 once that had a bad connection. I traced the main wires from the battery to the fire wall. Take a simple light tester (one with a sharp point to push into the insulation) and make sure the large wires are hot all the way to the firewall. That is where I would start. I think the car has fusable links. If you find that one is blown, make sure you put one back in. P.S. be careful which wires you poke, I understand it is possible to set off thge air bag -I don't know.

Check all fuses and fusible links in engine compartment fuse box and let us know the results. Also specify exactly everything that isn't working--is it the A/C blower or clutch? Wipers and washers? How about the radio? Door locks? etc...

If you mean can you drop in a replacement zetec engine then yes. As far as parts, yes it is as well. The differences mostly pertaining to the ECU and electrical sensors.

Ford focus zetec 1.6 auto, Misfiring and no power


It's normal for the cat to get hot - given they've replaced everything (just about) that could cause your problem - they have not looked at the injectors and O2 sensors. If you had something burning in the engine bay it was most likely electrical and you should look for burnt wires. You probably have a short in the ignition system or fuel injector wire harness. It's nearly impossible to diag a problem like this without having the car first hand. It must be throwing check engine light codes. Get the codes and post them. Also try a different shop at this point.
