Question about 2000 Ford Focus

2 Answers

I have a 2001 Focus station wagon. the cruise control will not engage. And the high beams will not stay on (I can flick them, but they won't stay). Are these loose switches of some sort, that I could fix myself, or more serious problems?

    I had actually checked for blown fuses based on the wiring schematics in the Chilton manual, but all fuses were fine. Maybe just pulling them out and re-inserting cleaned off the contacts just enough, because now my cruise is working again. The high beams, however, are still acting up, so I'll have to look into that a little further. Thanks for your help!

I would check the easy things first. That is the brake switch and the clutch switch (manual trans). Drive down the road and pull the brake pedal up with your foot and then try to set the cruise (same with the clutch pedal). Also the cruise requires that the brake light bulbs be in working order (and that there are no LED brake lights). Check fuse numbers 53 54 and 59.
The high beam problem might be related to the cruise issue, but I can't think of a reason why.

My 2001 Lincoln ls cruise control will not work. Put in a new clockspring and that did not fix it. radio controls and horn work but the air bag light stays on continually after starting. The lights on the cruise side will go on an off -I have bought that part to replace but don't want to put on if that is not the problem.

Ford 2003 Focus. Low beam headlights not working. Hi beam do. Can get low beam to come on if flip between hi and low but don't stay on.


That sounds like a problem with the high beam switch in the low beam position. The contact is bad or the detent retainer isn't keeping the contact engaged.

Headlights do not work. Beam works, park lights and other lights work. Bulbs ok


more than likely a fuse or a relay is bad. locate the fuse for the headlights (owners manual) and check if it is bad, if the fuse is good, find the relay and give it a flick or two and try the headlights then, if they work, its time for a new relay

My Ford Focus station wagon. When I have the heat


your damper doors are not closing in the box itself properly and also you need to check the flow rate trhough the heater core its highly possible the heater core is possibly clogged with dirt and debrise' sometimes you can just reverse the ehater hoses and drive the vehicle for a few hours or even days and that bach flushes the dirt out of the core then you will need to drian your radiator and refill with clean antifreeze

My cruise control is not working but the light will flick on when i touch the bottom but it will not stay lit this is for a 2004 gmc sierra LT 5.3 V8


The multi purpose wand the includes the cruise control, wipers, high beams and turn signal, might have a short in it. Since the light comes on at first and immediately goes off makes me think the fuses are fine and it just a capacitor inside that wand. GM wants almost 500 for the part on my 01 Sierra, but you can easily find them online for around $90
