That's funny, Christine is my girlfriend...
we just took out the alternator and it was extremely loose like the brushes were done, we didnt have time to put the new one in tonight but it should be a hour or so to put everything back in place hopefully she starts! and runs properly! also i think i have to do the aliment on the rear end. when im on the high way and hit a pot hole it the rear end swerves all over the place. i changed a lower control arm ( dog bone) and the sway bar linkage kit.
i didnt know it was a 4 wheel alignment. does anyone know if that is the problem or is it a sway bar problem?

it worked! car runs awesome!! battery is charging perfectly, and even more power at the wheel it seems! the humming sound is gone! must of been the old alt.
it was a BIT*H getting out. took off the motor mount, moved the motor ( took 4 guys to pull it over far enough to take it out and put a new one in. i would defiantly hate to do that again.
#474 of 506 Back lights and Rear turn signal DONT WORK!!
Oct 04, 2012 (4:52 pm)
Okay so I drive a 2002 Focus Wagon
the problem started a month ago with the back lights and dash lights stopped working
but the brake lights and turn signals were fine
Checked the fuse; everything looked good
Then we took out the back lights and just kinda wiggled the wires and they came back on
..So then i drove over a bump and they were off again
..then the rear turn signal stopped working
and now when i brake the left back light doesnt turn on at all
Could it be a fuse or a bulb or wiring??
WHAT COULD IT BE?? HELP!!
OH and today I found the F30 fuse burnt...

I have a Ford Focus 1999 1.6 zetec, When you turn on my lights the Drivers side indicators stay on! But if the lights are off!! the indicators work fine, could someone please tell me how to fix this?

Remove L side parking light bulbs, front & rear. Then turn on your lights and see if your indicator light is still on. If not, you have a shorted out bulb.
If it is still on you have a wiring problem. Good luck.
#477 of 506 How to replace bulb in rear brake warning of 2006 sedan

The brake warning panel in the trunk lid of my 2006 sedan has a couple of burned out bulbs. How do I remove the light panel from inside the trunk, so I can get access to replace the bulbs?

On the sedan, it looks like you just remove the trunk lid inner panel and expose the bulb sockets. The 3 or 5 door has screws for the lens to remove the bulbs from outside the car, but I guess the sedan doesn't.

Unfortunately, the "book" doesn't tell me that part. Generally they are snap-ins. Look and see if you see little "buttons" around the edge of the panel--if so, those snap out by gently prying.
