FOCUS PROBLEMS

09 August 2008 - 04:01 PM

hi
ive just bought a focus estate 1999
i am happy with it but have a few small problems
whilst braking the brake lights come on ok but the front lights also come on, but then the front lights go off when i take my foot off the pedal this is while driving in the day obviously makes no difference at night, also when this happens in the day the instrument back lighting also comes on whilst pressing brake pedal
does anyone know what causes this
also when i switch engine on the needless on instrument cluster do a full sweep and then return to normal
also when engine i s cold it idles fast because of the auto choke but when car is at operating temperature it idles when you are statinary at about 750 rpm but is not smooth at idling but is fine when you accelerate
any ideas? th

i like the car and was astonished when i first drove it at the acceleration for a 1.6
does anyone know where to get a cheap ford cd player for my focus
