    anyone know how I can fix this...

    ..my car again! Just a quick question! My focus's indicators dont flash when I open the car, I know they should do and when I lock it they flash...anyone know how I can fix this myself without going to a garage? Thanks!

    possibly a fuse

    flippin eck you've bought a nail haven't ya?

    The indicators do not flash on all focus's, if I remember rightly it's a dealer programming issue.

    Why would you worry about it anyway? You only need them to flash when you lock it so you know it's locked:thumbsup:

    Gallon of petrol and a match?

    Sorry to hijack the thread OP, but my Focus's speedo randomly drops down to zero (well 10) and stays there for a few seconds, then goes back again, anybody any ideas?

    Don't worry about it, as long as the doors open.

    Must have missed that one. Serious question though, did you actually look at the car before you bought it? Did you get the belt done in the end?

    yes I did and I looked at like about 50 before it (best of a bad bunch and I did get it cheap so its not all bad)! It is ok, I never test drove it my friend did. Only a few probs really -
    1. accelerator (need to replace cable - it is a cable thankfully and not a switch!)
    2. cam belt needs doing (will do after my exams)
    3. some scratches etc (not bothered by them anymore!)
    4. makes a smell, which I think is something to do with air con - I am going to buy a new pollen filter and see if that helps first and also put a car freshner in.
    5. Indicators dont matter - was more a general question. I have a friend who has a focus and their indicators flash so I just wondered if mine should.

    :thumbsup: Thanks

    If your aircon smells its probably bacteria in the system. run the aircon on the maximum cold setting for about five minutes then switch to the maximum hot setting and run for about five minutes more. this will kill of any bacteria and voila! the smell will be gone.

    so long as they flash when you actually indicate what does it really matter.
