hood lock

Recommended Posts

m8 had a crash with his focus and had to change the hood lock (behind the ford logo)...so we broke the old lock,opened the hood and put a new lock in

now everything works fine,except the car wont start?! before the changing car started up normal?! :blink:

So the car defiatly started after the crash but before you changed the lock? <_<

Ive changed a bonnet lock befor on a mk1 focus and as far as I can remember theres nothing there that would stop it from starting. So I dont think its related

very strange - sure battery not dead from radio or lights? tried jump leads or rolling start?, should only have door and boot alarms on Zetec Ghia - ST not lx cl. interior scan and perimeter alarm was £250 option when new, you would hear an alarm and once you open doors with key the alarm should deactivate immobiliser anyway and car should start or retrigger the alarm. No immediate solution from me sorry but dont think change of hood lock is related to starting probs.
