Question about Ford Focus

1 Answer

Ford Focus 2009 2.0 TDCI - my stability control lit up saturday and had this checked at a local ford dealer. They said it was a battery providing low voltage. The battery was changed. Driving it home a day later both the stability control and the abs lit up. Hoping somebody could help me solve this problem.

Hello, I was noticing your Year model and you may have Warranty left, so the Dealer would be the place to go.

I would hope the Dealer checked your Charging system when they diagnosed the Battery problem. If this was not done, the new Battery would run down too.

You can get free scans at Autozone, Oreillys, an Advance autoparts. You should also ask for a Charging system check wherever you go in addition to the regular scan. Since this is Sunday, you could get this stuff checked out today and have the test results ready for the Dealer Monday.

The low Battery problem can cause false readings so the Dealer did not lie to you, just that the Battery happened to be low and there was really another problem with the Stability control. It is also likely the problem in the Stability control is drawing down the Battery.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. If you model has an off/on button for Stability it may be wise to turn it off so the Battery stays charged.
