I don't know how many miles you have or the condition of the car, but it sounds like it might just be your TPS (throttle position sensor) might be bad as well as the throttle could be sticking open and just need to be cleaned. Find where the throttle cable goes to the intake and just take some spray injector cleaner or something of that nature to clean the throttle plate. Start with the latter first.

Why did my engine stop accelerating just stay at idle

Your accelerator pedal is bad. The IVS (Idle Validation Switch) is probably not shutting off, or the potentiometer in the pedal went bad.
Hopefully you do not have adjustable pedals as the pedal assy. can be expensive for those.

Whats the fuse to change in a ford focus zx3 hatchback year 2000 for the change engine light

when i was working in my local ford dealership the only way we were able to remove that light was to access the vehicles ECU and delete the trouble codes that were on there. provided there is no actual problems with your vehicle clearing the codes should solve the problem. if there is more to it then the codes will reapear and bring that light back up.
Generally your local mechanic or ford dealership will have the scan tool required to remove the codes
i hope i have helped

2002 Ford Focus ZX3 - Brake Lights

Most likely this is the brake pedal sensor switch. It is mounted on the brake pedal arm, and it has a screw adjustment mechanism. You will need to adjust it by turning the screw so the switch does not make contact when the brake pedal is pressed.
