why 2003 ford focus stall when air conditioner is turned on

Guess: Best Guess is defrost or AC are on and the engine is having trouble running the compressor. This is common on these cars when they have another fault with the way they run. Second best guess, The engine has a run problem, and the extra load causes it to be worse.

It is not supposed to be on when engine is running unless there is a problem.

When a check engine light comes on, it means that there are issues with the engine. It gets turned off when the person resolves the problem that caused it to turn on.

Has it always been like this or not? If it is, then it is not really a problem. It is how the stereo was installed. An stereo can be installed to be turned on whether the engine is on or off. If the stereo cannot be turned off at all, then you have a problem with your stereo.

leave the ignition turned on for 45mins or until the red security light on the dash has stoped flashing then start beware if the engine stalls or you turn the engine off you have to wait anutha 45mins

On most vehicles, after the problem is taken care of, the check engine light resets automatically after the ignition is turned off and then the engine is started again. If you have fixed one problem, a second problem probably exists.

Boilers provided steam to two different types of engines. The two outer propellors were turned by a triple expansion steam engine. ( 3 different pistons are pushed by expanding steam) The center prop was turned by a steam turgine engine.

Scan tool, will give you a trouble code as to why the computer turned the check engine light on.

Your statement is a little inconclusive. Will the transmission shift when the engine is turned off, but not shift when the engine is running? If it is jammed and refusing to move even with the engine off, the problem will be inside the gearbox and usually related to the selector forks and or rods. If the the problem is there only when the engine is running the problem will be related to the clutch assembly, which is failing to disengage the gearbox from the engine

I had the same problem on my 1999 Windstar. It turned out that the light bulb for this indicator was burned out. I simply replaced it and the problem was solved!!

Try replacing your Oxygen sensors they are located on the catalytic converter. I had the same problem with my 94 Caprice and that turned out to be the problem.

I had a similar problem with my Park Ave. It turned out to be the crank sensor. The cam sensor can cause the same problem. Both are needed by the computer to fire at the correct time. Have the error code checked to see if that is the problem.

WLAN switch locationFor the PSPgoThe WLAN switch is on the left side and pushed up to be turned on.For the PSP-2001 and PSP-3001 seriesThe WLAN switch is labeled WLAN. It is located on the top of the unit to the left of the UMDTM door and must be pushed to the right to be turned on.For the PSP-1001 seriesThe WLAN switch is on the left side and pushed up to be turned on.

* It could be a faulty check engine light or a light sensor problem . There's probably not a problem with the engine at all just the faulty sensor light problem most likely. * ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If your check engine light stays on with the engine running , a malfunction with the emission control system has been detected. Have your vehicle scanned for any trouble codes in order to diagnose and repair the problem. ( I had a check engine light come on at 35000 miles - in my case it turned out to be the DPFE sensor )

Repair the problem that turned it on and then clear the code with an OBD2 scanner/code reader

User Avatar

Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem - usually in the emission control system

User Avatar

First have the problem that turned the light on repaired. Then use an OBD2 scan tool to reset the light.

User Avatar

Have the code read. Autozone will do this for free. Even though the light is not on now. It will be stored as a recent code. It has to cleared to be erased completely. Good luck. i had the same problem with mine it turned out to be the knock sensor i replaced it and the problem went away give that a try

That sounds like problem in the cluster. The high beam indicator is cross wired to the check engine light when it shouldn't be.
