Your idle control valve is either dirty or bad. You should be getting a check engine light on your dash.
The idle control valve is located on your throttle body.
If you have a check engine light on you will need to plug a OBD II reader in to retrieve the code.
Please let me know what you find.

My 2003 Ford Focus would not accelerate, and kept dying on me, now wont start, do you know what could be wrong?


A strong possibility of a defective Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS)...It can be tested with a volt meter...TPS is located on the throttle body (see diagram below) & has a three pin connector with following wire colors; Brown (ground)...Yellow (+5 volts)...And White (TPS output)...Set meter to 5 volt dc...Push point,of safety pins into the Yellow and Brown wire at rear of connector...Do not disconnect connector...connect + lead to Yellow pin and - lead to Brown pin...Turn key on...Meter must read at least .08 volts...Open throttle full...Meter must read at least 4 volts...If not TPS is defective...Send results...NOTE>>>Diagram is based on a 2.0L Single Overhead Cam Engine, if your vehicle is different let me know...saailer

Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.

2003 ford focus zx3 1.6 zetec engine. Car stalls and dies (as well as an array of lights on the dash) when AC is turned on (not the blower, but the actual AC), as well as when the blower output is set on...


Check ground 203 located behind the passengers side lower kick panel (Trim panel near passengers right foot) Remove the panel and look for wires that are bolted down to the body(ground wires). See if the wires are secured tightly under the bolt(s) by pulling and wiggling them. If the ground connection is loose it could cause what you are describing.
Hope this helps!
