Repair Issues With a Ford Focus

The Ford Focus is a car that has been available in the United States since the late 90s. Since then, owners have shared common issues with it, along with suitable fixes. Contact switches, fuel gauges, and brake pedals are all parts that have caused repair issues for Ford Focus drivers.

Contact Switch Repair

Interior lights in the Ford Focus may fail to turn off although all doors have been closed. A faulty contact switch in the lock striker is the cause. To repair this issue, you can replace the lock striker with an upgraded one that possesses revised contact switches.

Fuel Gauge Repair

Sometimes a Ford Focus will still give an empty fuel reading even though you've just pumped a full tank of gas. When this happens, a bad fuel pump module is often to blame. To fix this issue, you will have to replace the fuel level sender card assembly with a revised version.

Brake Pedal Repair

Some Ford Focus drivers have had problems with hard braking at the outset of a drive. You'll need a revised brake booster vacuum hose, as this will correct the problem of reduced assistance from the brake booster. You'll also have to reprogram and reset the Powertrain Control Module.
