Question about 2000 Ford Focus
The easiest way to test this at home is to find the 4 wire connector back at the fuel tank. (Find the violet/white wire and the orange/yellow.) Unplug the connector and attach a resistor between these wires, turn the key on and check. You will need a 145 ohm resistor for full and 22 ohm resistor for empty.Doing this checks the guage,wires and slosh module in the dash.If the gauge reads correctly, your problem is in the tank. You can pick the resistors up at Radio Shack or any electronics store. Or you can try and rent a guage tester from your local parts house. Good Luck, let me know if you need anything else.
