Having problems with your 2000 Ford Focus ?

On my old ford windstar.... water leaked by the passenger side window... ran across a beam under the dash and dripped right over the fuse panel... i suspect you have something similiar and the relays are filling with water. basically you need to locate the leak and then replace all the relays... as there are alot of them and the flasher relay is abit pricey i would suggest doing what i did which is to go to a junk/recycling/wrecking yard and locating a vehicle like you have.... ask them how much for all the relays (including the ones under the dash in the fuse box near the battery)... keep replace the ones you need to replace and keep the rest in the glove box... first place to look for the leak is along the window... if it has black plastic strips beside the windshield it is probably leaking there... lift them up and put a small bead of silicone caulking in the crack then push the plastic strip back in.. use some tape to hold it till it dries
