The light with the exclamation mark - I had a Mk1 Focus for eight years up til 2 years ago and don't recall any such light, other than the brake fluid/handbrake warning light.  Are you sure it's not that?

 

I'm very sure it's not that. The one you're on about is red, and on the right side of the dials. 

 

The warning light that came up on mine was yellow and on the left, right above the 'check engine' warning light.

 

There is a a powertrain light on fords yellow light on left side of cluster u will need fault codes checked

 

I'm quite convinced it's this.

Hi Hanna,

 

How quickly do you need this solving? if you can wait, have a look at my signature for "got an error on your car", and you can get yourself a code reader. Otherwise if you need it sorting sooner, you will need a garage to have a look.

Hi James, I've got it sorted today thanks! :) I'll have a read quickly though, OBD and codes tend to interest me for some reason!

 

It turned out there was a leak... but in the thermostat holder, spewing out water! One of the bearings had gone on the cambelt pulley too which was triggering the warning lights. 

So, waterpump, cambelt and oil change, new thermostat holder and a quick look over. Not as bad as I'd expected! Thank you everyone.

Honestly? Never known this! Even when my Focus jumped a tooth on the timing belt I never got any warning lights, got a god awful noise though!

You sure this wasnt just a way of the garage getting you to have them change the belt?

I'd be questioning this if i were you.

Glad you got it sorted though none the less :)
