  • Ford Model: Focus 1.6 Zetec mk1

Posted 27 March 2010 - 01:35 PM

Hi Guys, New to the forum :rolleyes:

Basically, my dads 2001 1.6 Zetec Focus engine management light came on 4 years ago. He took it to a garage which diagnosed the fault as catalytic converter and replaced it.
4 weeks after the light came back on, but my dad stupidly ignored it
Every year since, my dad has paid 300-400 for a new catalytic converter for the annual mot (light still stays on)
He has just paid for his 4th which is a joke
Any ideas what could be the problem

Have something to contribute?

sounds like you could have a faulty oxygen sensor, try and get the codes from the ecu.

Could also be something as simple as static on a sensor. Which means there is no problem at all.400 a year to replace the cat. Surely if its a part fault then the warranty should cover it?
