Question about 2000 Ford Focus
I recently got into an accident. The front of the car hit another going about 20 MPH. The car won't start, and a friend told me it is because the fuses went out as a safety precaution. Is that something could happen? what are these fuses called?
This could be caused by what is called a "fuseable link" it is a piece of wire that is designed to carry only so much amperage (current) sometimes when you have an accident and you have electrical shorts caused by the accident the fuseable link will break because of the electrical short. Some cars have fuseable links going to the starter solinoid and if these short out the car will not start. On the focus the fuel cut off switch is located on the passenger kick panel under the dash. The ones I have seen have a red button and you have to press down on them to reset them.

On the Ford Focus, the fuel cut off switch is on the passenger side kick panel.

It may not be the fuses,some ford cars have a feul pump shut off switch.if you still have your owners manaul it should tell you were it is located. its usually either in the trunk on the drivers side of the car or under the passengers side of the dash nead the kick pannel. it will be a black box with a yellow or red round button on top.
