2001 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 80,000 miles
Hi, I changed the battery on my ford focus and now the Hazard light on the dash is stuck on solid red, the brake lights and signals will not work. The upper light on the hatch back will work. The Radio was also not working but after checking the fuses I found only one not burnt out and now the radio works. I tried disconecting the battery and then re-connecting it but it did not improve the situation.
Turn on and off the 4 way switch (hazard switch )
I would suspect a bad flasher and or a multifunction switch
its NOT the brake light switch, because 3rd light is working

Thanks for your reply. Where is the location of these switches and how do you check if you have a bad flasher?
