2000 Ford Focus Dashboard light question

My wife took the car to work and a light came on. She says it looks like a submarine. She has the manual in the car and is a work teaching kids. I would like to find out what that light means so I can call the dealer that we just bought it from.

Please help asap

I am a frequent forum user. These kinds of forums have been very popular with magicians for the past three or four years.

All the best,

I would say she is referring to the check engine light (lower left side of my instrument cluster)

From the book manual:
If the check engin light comes on after the engin is running, one the the emission control systems may be malfunctioning "The vehicle will usually be driveable and will not require towing"

If the light is sold then it is something with the On Board Diagnostics. If it only come on temporary it could be somthing like poor fuel quality, or the fuel cap might not be tight.

All this is from the 2003 manual page 10. If it does not come on later you can go to www.focushacks.com and they have a trick to illumate all the bulbs in the instrument cluster and your wife can point it out.

Hope this helps

Andrew

Yes I think it does. The dealer is going to hook up the car and find out what the problem is.

All the best,
