Newbie with another Focus

I have been a member here since Sept or so when I picked up an 02 focus that needed alot of work. I ended up fixing it and selling it. Yesterday I was at an auction and ended up picking up a 2005 ZX3 SE with an Adrenalin package. I was just looking for a commuter car and saw this car and got it for quite cheap. Its got most options like leather, sunroof, Sony mp3 with indash 6 pack. It is aslo lowered, intake, exhaust (quite annoying) and a great body.

I also noticed a SCT sticker on the engine so who knows whats been done there. It drives real nice but it does have the batery light, and the ABS and park brake lights on so I will have to fix that (I hate electrical problems). I have not had a chance to go thru it in detail yet as I am on "daddy duty today" I guess I am just giving you a heads up that I will probably be asking lots of questions.

the abs and brake light might be becuase of the fuse or the traction control is off, so check that out.

sounds pretty cool, i dont think ive ever seen an adrenaline edition. sct is a tuner that the previous owner probablly used to tune the car.
