  4. Hi All, I'm looking for a little help, I want to upgrade the fog lights on my 2008 focus to daytime running lights. Can anyone recommend a pure white bulb replacement (H11) I don't need them too bright as I don't wish to annoy anyone. Thanks

    ignition problem?

    Hi Guys, Thanks for the reply's I dont have the auto lights function, and I reconnected the fogs to factory setting (wired to fog switch) and removed the fuse from the drl relay, the fogs now come on without the engine running, previously the engine had to be running for the fogs to function.

    ignition problem?

    Hi all, I'm looking for a little help and advice on my 2008 focus. I have an aftermarket drl relay wired to my fog lights with the last 6 months (with low wattage led bulbs) so the fog lights come on when the engine is running, and a 30 second delay when the engine is turned off. The ignition live is from a piggy back fuse for the rear wiper. The problem is, that with the last week the fog lights are coming on, on the second turn of the key (without the engine running) I am guessing there is a problem with the ignition. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    condensation

    Hi all, Both my fog lights have condensation, I have sealed them with silicon after drying them out again and again but it still returns. I have seen on line where its recommended to drill a small hole but I am skeptical as there is a vent under the cap on the top of the fog light and both vents are unblocked. Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks P.S. Cree bulbs 2008 Focus

    Very helpful thanks for the reply, I went for the piggy back option under the dash on the rear wiper fuse. Thanks again

    Engine bay ignition live

    Hi, I am fitting a drl relay harness on my 2008 pre facelift focus, but I cant find an ignition live in the engine bay. There is a pos and neg to the battery, and a blue wire to go to an ignition live. I am unfamiliar with piggy back fuses(apparently they have to be installed a certain way) and don't want to go through the firewall. If possible I would like to tap an existing wire. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Rear window washer problem

    Problem solved. I disconnected the rear window nozzle, opened the hose connection in the rear pillar and blew out the hose with an air compressor.

    Rear window washer problem

    Hi all, I have no water to rear window washer on my 08 Focus after it recently ran dry. I have read the other listed items and I am still stumped. I have water flow at the connection under the driver side rear pillar top, i have checked the spoiler nozzle and it seems to be clear. The problem seems to be the pipe in the headliner or in the top of the door and i cant get access to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  14. Hi all, I'm looking for a little info again. Some Muppet with a toe hitch backed into my 2008 focus mid section grill (just below the reg plate in front). There isn't any paint damage, but the horizontal plastic grill bar is bent downwards. I tried to straighten it using a heat gun but was afraid I would damage the paint. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Water ingress into boot

    I had a similar problem with my focus and after a lot of checking found it was the roof spoiler was letting in water.I used silicone and tightened the nuts to fix it. Don't know if this is the same for your situation.Hope it helps
