Focus Juddering And Various Dash Lights
Posted 04 December 2012 - 08:10 PM
I have a Focus 1.6 Ghia (51 plate 80,000) and after having 3 trouble free years it is now developing some problems :
Air Bag warning light comes on and goes off every few seconds, now the Door open warning Light does the same (also when the door open warning comes on my screen heaters will go off
Heater Fan only works on number 4, I replaced the resistor pack a few months back( new from fords) but it blew again a week later)
the Car now Judders under accelerlation particularly through 2nd and third and noticed that it does it when the Door open sign comes on.
It has just recently passed the Mot with only a new Wishbone needed and had a new Air Filter Fitted .
Obviously I am worried about the expense as it is right before xmas !
Thanks for any help offered.

I reckon you probably have an answer or a cure by now but what you are experiencing is a misfire which has confused the gem module which plays havoc on everything it controls. if you google this you will see what im on about...
disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will reset the ecu and probably allow everything to function again but will no doubt happen again until you sort the misfire.
as for the misfire i would check out the plugs, leads and coil pack
does your window wipers/screenwash function correctly? heated rear screen? interior light and door chime?

Stll juddering away/lack of power and clicking on acceleration
Door open sign is back to it's old tricks(and when this happens there is a loud clicking behind the glove box)
Electric Mirrors have stopped working
Rear wiper stopped but has decided to work again
Screen heaters go off when the door open sign comes on
Doors have randomly locked whilst driving a couple of times
Fan only works on 4 despite changing the resistor pack witha new Ford one only for it to blow again..
seems to be using more petrol than usual
Engine light has stayed on since it came on
I have not been able to take to a garage as it has happened right on xmas and with 3 kids I just don't have the cash tbh so was hoping to have a go myself if at all poss
I have been advised to get an F super and someone else said and OBD 2 meter (which one is it ?) to connect to my laptop
Leads seem ok so will dissconnect the battery and then replace the coil pack if you agree that wou;d be the best order to try things ?
Once again thanks
