Non Start Fiesta

16 October 2015 - 07:22 PM

I have a 2004 fiesta 1.3 with manual gearbox. About 4 months ago it was started and moved about 1/4 mile then parked up with no problems, During the 4 months  the battery drained down to about 7 volts so a new battery was fitted but it wouldn't start, in fact when the key was turned all the dash lights came up but nothing else, not a squeak from the starter motor.  no power to the solenoid but there was 12v power leaving the ignition switch. By turning on the ignition and running a live lead to the solenoid terminal the engine would spin over but not so much as a cough from it.!

There is not a remote  blipper with this car, only standard keys. I have tried to reset the fuel cut-off switch but it was OK. It is as though there is an immobiliser somewhere but it doesn't show on the wiring diagrams. Does anyone have any ideas about this please. ???


Focus Dash Light Query.

Hi all, Have just bought  a 2003 focus, (my first) it all seems ok but if you stare at the instrument panel lights there is a light which does not come on when you turn on the ignition but every now and again one of the lights gives a very quick flash, not long enough to see properly but it looks like a wheel with a spray of stones flying up to the right, this light is on the right just above the fuel gauge and is the second one down in a row of 5 lights. Should I be worried and what is it for.?? any ideas please. I have tried looking on the web but it is not shown on any site I have seen.
