high beams, ac/heat and airbag light


Asked by Jun 15, 2015 at 07:30 PM about the 2013 Ford Focus SE Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Okay so my ac heat and high beams all went out at the same time as well as my air bag
light came on. I thought alternator at first but quickly decided against that. Still had it
check and it's fine. I've tried to figure out what would control all those things at once but I
really can't figure it out. I drive an automatic, 2013 ford focus SE hatchback.  HELPP

I just started having the same exact problem with my 2012 Ford Focus hatchback. Were you able to resolve the issue? Can't seem to find anything that helps.

Yes, it was a bad battery. I let it go until my car just wouldn't start all together before I realized the battery didn't have enough juice to run everything. My suggestion is take your battery to Advance or Auto Zone and let them test your battery if you can't test it yourself.

The same thing just happened to me, And I can't seem to figure it out. I took it to autozone and Walmart and had the battery tested they said it's good. Did you guys have another solution?


After I changed the battery I realized that wasn't the problem. The problem is under the passenger side dash. If you have a passenger who likes to extend their feet or perhaps you have a long legged hubby like myself, there is a little clip with a shit ton of wires conneted to it that if they kick it, it releases the wires and they all disconnect at once. It should be a little blue clip under the dash on the passenger floor board. Hope that helps! ^_^

Awesome... it worked thank you !

WOW THIS REALLY WORKS!!! I’ve been having this issue for over a year in my 2012 Ford Focus hatchback and haven’t been able to figure this out. Saw the blue handle and pushed it back into place and everything worked instantly! This works!!! Thank you guys so much!
