You might have to re-program it to the system again.

In Topic: Ford Focus Mk1 Central Locking

Don't follow the guide !

Its for a 2001 model which uses a central locking/anti theft module, models from 2002 have a GEM and the wiring is different.

Actually its for a 1999 model as that's what I have. :)

I wasn't aware of the change as I don't have a new model to try it on. Might be worth adding that info to my post?

I have a similar issue with mine, 1.4 135K 1999.

Occasionally it will take several seconds to start, normally it is instantaneous. It usually happens after a short journey, but not always.

I paid £160 sans the water pump, if I had known then what I know now I would have had it replaced at the same time.

I got a new pump off ebay for £17 so if it goes at least I am in a place to get it replaced quickly.


But as has been said depends on where you take it. This was a one man "garage".

How old is the focus?

Does it sound like it is locking then opening them again?

If the last then it is probably a bad connection in one of the door locks. Check out the FAQ there is something in there about it.
