In Topic: Focus 2006 1.8 Tdci 'engine Systems Fault' Again!

Fixed! Seems I was barking up the wrong tree. It was the fuel pump that was faulty. A total coincidence that it came up after an electrical fault. Ever since I bought it I thought it was just a little down on power than the other 2 focus's we have in the house but put it down to being a Mk 2. New pump and it's the same as the Mk 1's. Very costly to repair and if the rest of the car hadn't been perfect I think I may of scrapped it but there you go. This may be of use to someone else with similar symptoms.

Sorry should have said I did that and got a couple of ohms but didn't think that was significant. I've ordered a new valve for now and seeing if it does the trick. I know its a gamble but if it isn't the fault at least I can go to Ford and say it is an electrical fault and leave it to their diagnostics. :)

If the locking bar isn't fully latched that's a very likely cause as the connector won't lock in properly otherwise and you'll only be getting partial contact with some of the terminals.

Spot on buddy. :)  Just to wind this thread up thanks for all the suggestions. The locking bar about a quarter of the way up, probably courtesy of my sons mate's big feet! I must stress to anyone with similar weird problems it was only a tiny fraction out of place, not the half over I at first thought, so there we go problem solved.

Thanks again

Russ
