03 ford focus no start

9 posts in this topic

i have a 03 ford focus zts( 2.3l duratec))

yesterday worked like a champ now today won't start no clicks like a low battery everything comes to life when you turn it to run but when you go to start nothing!

i pushed it in the garage and put my jump box on it and that did not change anything.

battery lvl is 12.43vdc

any ideas where to start ?

When you have the key in the off position there should be a red security light that flashes every 2 seconds. That is normal, but when you turn the key to the on position, not crank, just on, the light should come on for 2 seconds and then stay off, if the light flashes after you turn the key to the on position, it is a pats security issue. Check that light and see what it is doing!

If that checks out than you can check for power at the small wire on the starter with the key in the crank position. Also make sure there is power on the big wire on the starter all the time.

ok after letting it sit over x-mas i got backout in the garage tonight and the starter is fine removed it and had it tested no power at the little wire for the bedix checked the fuses in the fuse pannel under the hood and in the cab when i turn the key i can hear/feel the relay on the fuse block both in the cab and under the hood click over. i also swapped the relay in the cab with the exact relay that was for the rear defog both work..

where do i go from here ?
