BULBS AND FUSES

THE INFORMTION BELOW IS RELATED TO FOCUS FOCUS MK2 2002-2004

 

1, CHECK ALL EXTERNAL LIGHTS AND THE HORN

2, VISUALLY CHECK ALL ACCESSIBLE WIRING CONNECTORS, HARNESSES AND RETAINING CLIPS FOR SECURITY, AND FOR SIGNS OF DAMAGE.

FORD CENTRE TIP : If you need to check your brake lights and indicators unaided, back up to a wall or garage door and operate the lights.The reflected light should show if they are working properly.

 IF A SINGLE INDICATOR LIGHT, STOP LIGHT OR HEADLIGHT HAS FAILED, IT IS MOST LIKELY THAT THE BULB HAS BLOWN AND WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. IF BOTH STOP LIGHTS HAVE FAILED IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE SWITCH HAS FAILED.

IF MORE THAN ONE INDICATOR LIGHT OR TAIL LIGHT HAS FAILED IT IS UNLIKELY TO BE BULBS THAT NEED REPLACING. IF BOTH STOPLIGHTS HAVE FAILED IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE SWITCH HAS FAILED.

IF MORE THAN ONE INDICATOR LIGHT OR TAIL LIGHT HAS FAILED, IT IS UNLIKELY TO BE BULBS THAT NEED REPLACING IT IS MOST LIKELY TO BE A FUSE THAT HAS BLOWN, OR THERE IS A FAULT IN THE CIRCUIT.

YOU WILL LOCATE THE MAIN FUSEBOX BELOW THE FASCIA PANEL ON THE PASSENGRER SIDE OF THE VEHICLE, THIS IS ACCESSED BY OPENING AND REMOVING THE GLOVEBOX. (TO DO THIS PRESS IN THE SIDES OF THE GLOVEBOX AND LOWER IT COMPLETELY).

TO RENEW A BLOWN FUSE, SIMPLY PULL IT OUT AND REFIT A NEW FUSE OF THE CORRECT RATING. SPARE FUSES AND FUSE REMOVAL TOOLS ARE LOCATED IN THE AUXILLARY FUSEBOX. IF THE FUSE BLOWS AGAIN , IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE THIS INVESTIGATED
