Having problems with your 2000 Ford Focus ?
2001 Ford Focus ZX3 LIGHTS DON'T WORK!
\015 I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 and it runs great, but i have a problem with the lights. the headlights, brakelights, and turn signals work when used, but when i turn on the running lights, they do not come on, nor do the tail lights or license plate lights on the hatchback. Also the dashboard lights do not come on. Any suggestions?\015
The first thing to do is check your fuses located underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Pull each fuse out and test it with a tester light (test light available at your local auto parts store) Flip the fuse box lid cover over and locate the taillight, headlights, and instrument cluster light fuses (should be three separate fuses) Pull them out and see if they are blown or burned out using the test light. Replace them with the same number fuse. For the dashboard lights, make sure the dimmer is turned all the way up to high. Next thing to do is check and change the headlight and taillight bulbs, pull them out "one by one" and see if they are burned or blown out. Replace with the same bulb (look at part number printed on the bulb)
I would check for a fuse,this is the most likely problem,now if the fuse is good,replace the headlight switch,this is the source for the running lights,and tail lights,and instrument lights,I look for the headlight switch to be bad.
