Ford Focus - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Sounds like a worn gear linkage, If its the 2nd and reverse other than that its the Synchro inside the gearbox, either way sounds like a gearbox off and back on.

You can determine the above if you got it looked over by a mechanic thou to be honest theres not much an answer but a rough idea.

There are 2 locations in your vehicle that have fuses in them. The description of the locations of those are below. Also below are diagrams of the fuse layouts for each as well as a description of what each fuse is for. This should all be in your owners manual if you have one. If you don't and would like a copy, you can email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. No worries no cost for it. I hope this helps and good luck.

reverse lights . Automatic transmission or manual .
Principles of Operation
The voltage supply to the reversing lamps is provided by the reversing lamp switch on vehicles equipped with a manual transaxle and by the digital TR sensor on vehicles equipped with an automatic transaxle.

Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern.
  1. Visually inspect the following for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Reversing lamp switch (manual transaxle)
  • Digital transmission range (TR) sensor (automatic transaxle)
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse(s):
    • 40 (10A) (automatic transaxle)
    • 53 (10A) (manual transaxle)
  • Bulb(s)
  • Circuitry

  1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
  1. If the cause is not visually evident, connect the diagnostic tool to the data link connector (DLC) and select the vehicle to be tested from the diagnostic tool menu. If the diagnostic tool does not communicate with the vehicle:
    • check that the program card is correctly installed.
    • check the connections to the vehicle.
    • check the ignition switch position.
  1. If the diagnostic tool still does not communicate with the vehicle, refer to the diagnostic tool operating manual.
  1. Carry out the diagnostic tool data link test. If the diagnostic tool responds with:
    • ISO circuit fault; all electronic units no communication/not equipped, refer to Section 418-00 .
    • No response/not equipped for the GEM, refer to Section 419-10 .
    • System passed, retrieve and record the continuous DTCs, erase the continuous DTCs and carry out self-test diagnostics for the GEM.
  1. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the Generic Electronic Module (GEM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index.
  1. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, GO to Symptom Chart .


Generic Electronic Module (GEM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1810 Lamp Back Up Switch Input Circuit Failure GEM If the reversing lamps are inoperative, Go To Pinpoint Test Q . If the reversing lamps are always on, Go To Pinpoint Test S .
When the transaxle is placed in REVERSE, voltage is routed to the CJB fuse 40 (10A) through circuit 15S-TA38B (GN/BU). The voltage is then routed to the reversing lamps through circuit 15S-LG9 (GN/BK).
    Possible Causes
  • Fuse

Could be a short but could also be a bad ground at one of the lights!

2000 Ford Focus | Answered on Feb 20, 2019


You might have a power trunk button try to look for it also you should download your owners manual at ford owners.Com it should give you the location and your fuse box diagrams and other information now the seat you will have to unbolt it the side panels pop out and are held in with clips the bottom of the seat may pop out by pushing inwards but this also could be bolted in look around the bottom also when you pop out the side panels you might gain accessories to the rear deck bolts that the third brake light is attached to and radio speakers if applicable anyway you should be able to axcess the trunk by this path it's going to be a pain in the gozompus but you can get in I don't own a focus but from memory of getting stuff in junk yards I'm trying to help you so excuse me if I'm wrong here or there so pull out the door seals that go around the door opening there might be panel bolts in the frame and seat bolts behind once you get to them you should be able to get to the levers also I know that the lock was possibly frozen when you put in the key knocking in the weather shield and jamming the lock cylinder you can try putting the key in and keep trying to turn it while banging the trunk where the cylinder is and you might jar it loose that metal flap has a spring on it and those 2 things are stopping the key from turning the other alternative is to try using a very small screwdriver to try to move it out of the way so the key will turn you have to be gentle here digging in like crazy will not help and last of all if you can't get in then use a drill and destroy the cylinder completely and a long screwdriver and a hammer will get you in you'll have to change the cylinder anyway so whack away at it if all else fails good luck stephen

I assume the lights were NOT on while the car was being driven??
If these lights stay on for an extended period (more than 5 minutes) of time after the engine has been shut off, this may suggest you have a faulty instrument cluster or potentially a parasitic drain on the battery caused by faulty wiring or an accessory that is drawing power from the car when it is off.
To make sure there are not oil pressure issues ... I would check your oil dip stick level .... and also read any OBDII codes to see if the check engine light triggered anything.
If the only issue is the lights going on ... which means there is an electrical issue ... you will probably have to take it to a good mechanic for troubleshooting the problem

Ford Focus Cars... | Answered on Feb 19, 2019


Looks like to me that you may have several problems. You may have s few dash bulbs burnt out. Also a possible temperature sending unit that is not working. Two fuses feed the instrument panel. Find them in your owners manual and check them to make sure they are good ( number 35 and number 61 are the fuses I see in the schematics that I am looking at ). Best way to start is to have a scanner hooked up and see what codes are present. That would be the best place to start.

For the airbag light situation to be resolved you need the airbag code to be deciphered from a scantool that can read airbag codes,,If the alternator has low output it would turn on also the ABS light,If the car was flooded it is posible that the control module did short out its location in in the center bottom console
