focus 06 1.6 zetec cut out on motorway after oil light lit

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

hopefully someone can point me in the right direct. My wife was driving on the motorway and the oil light came on and the engine then cut out losing power steering ect.

Engine management light came on and then wouldn't turn over at all, just makes the lights dim with no noise.

Checked oil and coolant and all seems well, no burning smell and the timing belt is fine. The car still has electrics but seems immobilised although the car recognises the key according to the red light which clears when ignition is on.

would appreciate any help, only things to note is that a parrot handsfree kit was recently removed due to being faulty and a new battery needed to be fitted about a month ago.

Engine seized? Try putting it in 3rd or 4th gear, take the hand brake off and try pushing the car, the engine should turn over.
