I read various e-mails in this group and I have the same problems :
1. I have Ford Focus 2000 and only 47,000 KM ( less than 30,000 miles).
2. months ago I went for my 45,000 km check-up. I go on every 5,000 km
for check up. They told me that my brakes are completely gone. I spent
$500 CAD and replaced brakes. They also told me that I need to replace
fuel pump another $600 CAD. I didn't want to do that (replace fule
pump). Now I read here in News group that Ford notified drivers in USA
about fule pump recall. I don't know what is the status here in Canada
3. Two weeks ago my remote key stopped working , I couldn't open my
doors. I used key to manually ope, but I was not able to lock and unlock
doors anymore using both locking system on both driver's and passenger's
side. Also I was not able to open a trunk.
Last night went to Ford dealer. First they told me that was a fuse and
they put it another one. They tried a couple of times and new fuse also
went broken. They told me not to use remote key and only to use a button
in car to open trunk. But when they parked car outside garage and tried
again, fuse went agan. They told me that something is very serious and
they need to spend a couple of hours ($$$$$$$) to see what causing a
fuse to brake so often. I didn't want them to do it, I went home.
Now I use my key to manually lock and unlock doors. I can't open trunk
at all. Remote key for trunk dosen't work. Button on dashborad for a
trunk doesn't work and even I can't get a key in trunk to manually open
(also $200 CAD).
Please help or advice on central locking situation. I am really angry.
Please tell me what to do, what can be done.
