Electrical Problem

I think that I might need some advice. I own a 2000 Focus ZTS and I have lost my dashboard lights, running lights, and the lights that iluminate the license plate. My headlights, blinkers, brake lights, and hazard lights are all functioning normally. I checked all fuses located under dashboard. With exception of the fuse that operates the cigarette lighter, all fuses were in good shape. Anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this problem and what/how I need to repair the problem? Thanks in advance for any help that will be given.

Check your daytime running light relay

Re: Electrical Problem

Checked the 7.5 amp fuses in slots 47 & 48. Both were good to go, changed them out anyway. There is no daylight running light relay that is used on the my 2000 Focus ZTS, so that is not the problem. Any other ideas? I have read that the problem could lie in the ground wire that is associated with that particular system. If that is a possibility, where are they located and how do I go about repairing them? Thanks again for any help that is given.

Re: Electrical Problem

From the Haynes manual the sidelight fuse (10 amps) is F19 in the engine fuse box. The running lights fuses are F22 (15 amp) and F14 (10 amps). Could check it applies to your car , may be different from UK .Also check fuse 32 (10amp red fuse ) in the cabin fusebox .

Re: Electrical Problem

It should be a common switch, or power supply, most of what you've lost have separate grounds.
