My vindictive soon to be ex husband has disabled the car from starting. It is an 04 ford focus svt standard. He lays on the ground under the front bumper and does something under thete to the car to make it not start. It seems like something simple because he can do and undo it pretty quickly. I've looked under there and I'm clueless. HELP
About 3 days ago my dome light wiring along the side of the car by the driver's window had caught on fire I went home try to replace the wires and it drove I took it to work came back the next day I drove it to work after trying to fix the wires I got there and the car didn't even crank over I done had to push start it came home messed with the wires just move them around and the car started I put everything back together and I get a code p1233 and my fuel tank don't make it's brand new pump don't work
How long have you had this problem? A week
My car has the code P1518 which is the Intake manifold runner control where is that located at on on 2004 ford focus svt 2.0L DOHC and can I do it myself? And would it be hard where can I get a mechanic's book at?
Like it was out of gas, but it had a quarter tank of gas. Got a test light and found it has no spark I thought the fuel pump was gone but that wouldn't affect the spark. Could all 8 coil packs be bad? What is wrong with it I am baffled. It happened while driving on the highway going 60mph.
It won't start right back I've put a crank and cam sensor Hard to start misses in the little time that it does run
Ok so i thought if your turn signal was blinking fast that a bulb was out but when i checked both front and back blinkers were working just blinking fast then when i turn on my headlights the arrow on the dash when you have on your blinker stays lit up solid green and when i use the blinker it works and blinks fast but doesn't blink on my dash
Altogether it has 21 fault codes ranging from seat belts to etc?
replaced plug and cleaned Maf sensor checked air filter no black assume PCV is ok. Runs fine except at Idle. still sputters. Same codes and O2 and misfire 3rd cylinder. What else.
my son just installed the shifter cables and now it seems not grabbing any gears at all. How can he adjust the cables? he's been trying almost everything and nothing seems to work. what is he missing?
I think that the issue is to do with the transmission
I changed the T-Bar and reconnected the hoses. I refilled the anti freeze reservoir. Now it looks empty again. What is going on?
Please see above
dome lights works manually but not when doors opened
Ford Service Bulletin said to reprogram PCM for this year, model and this was done at dealer, but no improvement to long crank time. No error codes. Crank duration improves (1-4 seconds) when: 1) car has been running, turned off, and restarted within 5-10 min; 2) on cold start, if I turn key to ON, wait for fuel pump to cycle on/off, then turn key off and on again and immediately crank it over. Starting does sputter a bit but engine runs smooth within seconds.

Have tested fuel pump pressure and this seems to be o.k., fuel filter changed, new plugs, seemingly good spark; runs just fine once started. What to check out next?
Hello I have a 2002 ford focus SVT with the issue of the dome and door Ajar light on contiuously. I tried WD 40 on the lock mechanisms in the door and I have disconnected the door,door latch and hatch sensors with no luck. I took the bulk head connector in the drivers side kick panel apart and the dome light went out but the door ajar light remains on. Any suggestions??
