Question about 2004 Ford Focus
I had the cruise set at 65 while driving down the interstate. The car suddenly "jumped", but came back on. Then we were driving at low speeds and the car died as I was pulling up to a stop sign. I started it back up with no troubles. I noticed that when the dome light was on or the turn signal was on, it flickered like it was loosing power.
Check battery cable connections to battery, chassis, engine, and relay box.

You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!

Today while driving my 2007 Ford Focus SE The day was getting warm so I turned on the A/C everything was working OK for about two or three Minutes then the ABS caution light came on and then we could start smelling something getting hot so I turned the A/C Off and by doing so the Caution Light went off and the smell went away. I got my car checked by a Mechanic he took a reading for trouble codes and told me all was normal but he wasn't equip for shorts and suspected it could be behind the dash, figured everything would be ok as long as we didn't use the A/C. So the family took the car to the store only to give me a call that now they weren't able to start the car. The battery seem to be in good shape with plenty of power but it didn't seem it was getting it to the starter in fact it took a jump in order to start the car at the store. now that I've got it home, the car starts fine but I Still Get An ABS caution light when I put the A/C on And that smell comes back.
