Focus Electrical Problem

21 May 2012 - 03:47 PM

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and am hoping someone can help me. I have (I think) blown something up while fiddling with my Focus electrical system. I think I shorted out a thin green and white wire which goes to a connector inside the central console to the left of the gear lever. Everything still works, except that the auto lights are now permanently on manual, and the engine warning light is permanently on.

I have checked all the fuses (I think) and they all seem OK. Does anyone know where this wire goes and what may have got damaged by shorting it? I am thinking maybe the GEM is involved somewhere, but I don't really know. I have a Haynes manual, but the wiring diagrams don't show that wire. If anyone has a proper wiring diagram, that would be a great help.

The model is a 2008 Focus 1.6 TDCi Titanium estate. Attached is a picture which shows the connector, the green/white wire is just visible at the top.

Thanks for any help - it's got me scratching my head!
