Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Dashboard Query.


Recommended Posts

My Focus 2.5 Facelift model is showing on the dash the bonnet is open and i is illuminated and makes a warning sound everyone and then. This just flashed up while driving & won't disappear dispute opening & closing the bonnet several times (the bonnet wasn't open originally) there is also an astrix/star that is also illuminated. Can anyone help? It would be much appreciated.

The illuminated star may be your ice warning, Is it 4 degrees or lower there?

The bonnet warning points to a corroded/jammed sensor in the bonnet lock, give it a good blast of WD40 or electrical contact cleaner and see how you go.

Thanks for your help. The light normally comes on when the weather is freezing but it was warm & sunny yesterday, I didn't know if it was linked to this bonnet issue because it's only come since then. I'll try your advice with WD40. Is just around the latch under the bonnet then?

Yep, around the latch.

You should see a metal pin sticking up from the top of the latch, spray around that and operate it a few times to work the oil in.

If that doesn't help then you may need to swap the latch unit over or get it looked at.

When I got in my car after work the next day, the heating was working - no hot or cold not to mention air con! I assumed it was related and checked the fuse box, one of them was lose, I replaced it and hay presto! It all worked. Thanks for all your advice.
