The engine temp will go up when it is loaded like a hill climb. Also the fan only is run when needed for the engine, it is computer controlled, so unless the engine is overheating at idle you are likely just not aware of how it is operated by the computer, the engine temp will be about 230F before the engine fan is turned on.. As far as the AC blower fan goes you need to pull the fan and see if it works when 12 volts is applied with a jumper. You can run an active system test with a factory scanner and it will test the fan operation.

an airbag light, can mean a number of things. Your airbag will not deploy if a fault airbag light is on. It is dangerous, it has to be taken to a mechanic, to get it checked out. God-Bless! The airbag codes need to be checked to find the fault.

When you first turn the key on, no crank, if you listen close to gas tank, can you hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds? If not, check proper voltage and ground at the fuel pump connector, engine cranking.

I have to ask, how long since a tune-up?
Are there any applicable trouble codes?
Anything else missing? engine cranking do you have spark at the spark plugs and fuel injector pulse?

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

Not sure about the Ford Focus issue?? If your motorized bicycle has wire spokes, they should be adjustable. Just tightening the spokes will pull the rim to that side. The opposite when loosening them etc.
If your wheels are of the mag type like a car, then maybe a bike shop can straighten out the wobble without more damage.

My first suggestion is always recurring to a qualified mechanic.
In your particular case there is an issue with Focus fuel pump, and Ford guarantees free replacement in many countries, ask to your local dealer, to find out if you can have fuel pump replaced for free.

There is a front and back side of the cam gears. Some marks are dots by the gear tooth, some are notches cut out.

2000 Ford Focus | Answered on Feb 07, 2016

according to autodata belt replacement guide , there are no timing ,marks on the cam gears
it require special tools and a good knowledge of mechanics to do the job so I strongly recommend that you get a workshop manual before starting on the job
I could type it all for you but with only two fingers , I would be here until next week as the directions are involved and you will need diagrams to full understand the procedure
that is why I suggest a workshop manual
the procedure is not as you would expect as on other engine makes and need to carefully followed

The brake switch is probably mis-adjusted. If it does not activate when the brake pedal is depressed, the brake lights will not light and the gear shift release solenoid will not activate. That, or the wiring harness is not connected properly to the switch or is damaged.

Buy a new one, very cheap, and you can look it up on YouTube and it will explain all. Good luck.
