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.

On my 2005 F/expdn, if I am on red light stop, when rpm goes under 50 x 1000 my car shutdown. If I keep it above 50 by pressing accelrator is OK, pl suggest


1st your car should not idle below 110 rpm even in gear

idle problems on these are caused by both broken or open vac ports or a dirty throttle body the A/F ratio cant get a correct reading

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.
