You are watching: 2001 ford focus starter relay location


Hi Everyone,I just acquired a 2000 ford emphasis station wagon. I have actually replaced the PCV valve, rear pcv valve water tap so far. ~ I replaced the behind PCV valve hose, the battery irradiate on the dash began flashing. I drove the automobile home and also the next morning that wouldn"t start. The electrics come one (i.e. Stereo, lights, etc..) yet it won"t also click... For this reason I acquired a brand-new battery and also put it in. Very same thing! I placed the vital in and the electrics come on, but it won"t even click over...Is it feasible that i knocked something loosened in the earlier when placing on the PCV valve hose?? Is over there a method to check the starter or starter relay ~ above this car? I have a dual cam focus. Thanks!Raj

did you mess approximately with any of the censors close to the alternator? ns remember i had actually a comparable problem and also my difficulty was the the alternator censor had come of thus keeping the battery warning light on and likewise not charging my battery

This sounds prefer a starter relay (solenoid). This taken place with my 2000 F150. If the emphasis has a similar solenoid you have the right to switch ~ above the ignition and short the solenoid terminals v a driver to check out if the starts. If the car starts when you brief it, one of two people the solenoids gone poor or there"s one more problem going to the solenoid prefer you knocked a wire loose. Sorry ns don"t recognize that year of emphasis to offer you precise instructions but much better advice have to be in a forum somewhere.

first point to examine is the cable end at the starter. The cable actually goes from the battery come the alternator v a tee in ~ the starter solenoid. In all their wisdom they couldnt leave a bit of slack. ~ awhile the tee terminal can snap apart basically leaving a cable from battery to alternator.If you to be messing roughly the cable and also pulled it or together the tee terminal might have damaged which is simple to check...it shouldnt move at the starter. If you have power come everything but the starter ns can practically guarantee this is the problem. To be there done that. Never noticed it till I was removing the starter.If its damaged its a dealer only cable. No one provides one v the tee in it.
we have actually 00 emphasis se sound like my difficulty ive tryed jumping starter seloind it will certainly crank but not begin not a cable trouble .tryed nutrural and also park sill wont fire yet have u tryed this .
Hi Guys,A couple of questions before I walk out and check the vehicle 1: wherein is the starter solenoid? Is it near the firewall on the passenger side of the car? 2: Is the starter additionally in the exact same location? I"ve heard the they are hard to access on this car. I"ve tried trying to find the location yet couldn"t find it.I have actually the 2.0 DOHC variation of this car. Hopefully it"s among the relations is loose to the starter or starter solenoid! Raj
on my 00 se looking ai the battery pos cable over there is a wire conector in the same area that is a 1 cable conector 2-3 customs in length black plastic notsure wire shade or id check 4 u . Seloinoid is on starter if u location a cable from batt pos to the next of conector going towards the reduced side the eng it should crank over

Perhaps this is an evil coincidence. Those occur sometimes once working on cars. I"m going to pretend favor I don"t know that you just fiddled roughly under the hood, and the first thing I"d desire to know is which transmission you have? If you have a hands-on transmission, climate something could be amiss v the clutch place switch. If you have actually an automatic transmission then friend should examine out the neutral safety switch. I"ve heard of problems with those because of spilled drink in the console fudging up NS switch- and also have you tried shifting right into N and beginning it there?

Moderating every little thing now, allow me recognize if I deserve to help.
Hi,Okay so ns took a look in ~ the wiring. Everything so much seems to be securely in place. I tried clean the battery contacts. Quiet nothing. I have a auto trans, additionally tried placing it in Nuetral. Ns tried looking for the starter by adhering to the negative battery cable back to the firewall the the engine. Deserve to you view the starter by looking under the entry manifold? I have actually a multimeter therefore I might unplug the starter solenoid and test the volts.

What"s the PATS (Passive Anti Theft) irradiate doing throughout an test start? ~ above a 2000, it"s a red LED irradiate in the center of the dash through the danger switch. It have to be off as soon as the tool gauges come on. Confirm normal procedure of the PATS system first.
Did you check the starter relay fuse? (in engine compartment) and start relay wire.The wire to the starter solenoid runs very close come the egr pipe and can melt too it (even thru the insulation, ask me exactly how I know.....)The starter solenoid cable (8-10 gauge wire) has a 1 pen connector close come the confident battery terminal, and runs close to the key positive cable, and the egr tube.....

If you have actually an automatic infection then friend should check out the neutral safety switch. I"ve heard of difficulties with those as result of spilled drinks in the console fudging increase NS switch- and also have friend tried shifting into N and starting it there?
The neutral safety switch is part of the transmission selection sensor ~ above the former of the tranny (follow the shift cable until you discover a bar arm top top the infection casing). The just switch on the console shift lever ~ above automatics is the overdrive on/off. Starter solenoid is a smaller sized cylinder on peak of the starter motor. Starter and solenoid is a one piece assembly tucked up under the entry manifold in between the manifold and also the motor. You deserve to see it, if you have a flashlight and a mirror on a stick. PITA to obtain the damn thing in and also out. Starter relay is in the key fusebox in the cabin. Points in the circuit between you and also a starting vehicle:1. Battery2. Cables (positive and also ground)3. Ignition switch4. Starter relay5. Transmission range sensor (neutral security switch). There are a couple of set of contacts below that can go bad and prevent starting. Contacts 6 and also 9 are in in between the start relay and also the starter solenoid. Contacts 1-5 and 1-8 report back to the PCM (engine computer) whether the tranny is in neutral or park. If any of those sets of contacts room bad, you acquire no start/no crank. 6. Starter motor and solenoid Note additionally that the wizards of Ford got together with the insurance allowance demons and also came up with the PATS (Passive Anti Theft System). Its easily confused and also will refuse come let you begin your automobile if friend haven"t shined her shoes or shave recently.
