Having problems with your 2006 Ford Focus ?

2006 focus 1.8 tdci, has only 18000 miles on clock and is never taken for long runs. Has just started to show battery light on dash and after initial start does not start again. Have had power steering light also on dash and steering reverts to non power assistance. I have not checked with a multimeter across the battery as yet so cannot eliminate the alternator at present.

1995 was squealing, then started to over heat. The dash lights that lit were, brake and battery. I lost power steering. I put water in radiator the temp dropped, but still no power steering and dummy dash lights still lit. On driver side, there are 5 or 6 wheels and only one belt, is that the power steering belt that broke and do I also need a thermoatat?


Of course any belts that are missing should be replaced. If the engine overheated you probably do need to replace the thermostat as the temper has been changed. ... 1995 Mitsubishi Galant

My 2002 Hyundai accent is doing many things....the power steering is gone... The battery light and brake light are on on the dash..... The heater blows only cold and it says it is overheating. All if it started at the exact same time... I cranked the car and pulled away from the gas pumps, the belt made a loud squeaking for quite a while, the lights on the dash came on, the power steering was gone, as well as the heat, and maybe a mile down the road it started to overheat. What could be wrong???

1993 Jaguar xj6 won't start, battery drained of power.

I have a 2002 chev venture (3.4L) that won't start. No warning signs that there was a problem. I had the van out earlier in the morning and it started great.

When I try to start with the head lights on they do not dim. The dash indicator lights also will not come on when I turn the key to the on positio

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus. The headlights will not turn off, even if the headlight switch is turned off and the car is off. I've even removed the headlight switch and the headlights remain on. The headlights can toggle on/off before I turn the engine on, but after I turn the engine on the headlights remain on until I unhook the battery. The same time this started happening, I also lost power to the tail lights and dash lights. The wiring, fuses and circuits all work as I can get them to light up
