Hi I have a 2004 focus C max 1.8 petrol. Just recently it has started to play up I have my battery light on and it sometimes cuts out then will not start for a little bit it just does a clicking noise sounds like it is from the starter are they a common fail? Also I have an orange steering wheel warning light on my dash it has an exclamation mark next to it what does this mean?

Hi my wife's 1.6 petrol (2005) did that about 6 months ago. We used to leave it overnight and it started in the morning with no clicking at all. I have tested the battery and had 10.5 volts which is low. The alternator was fine whith 14+ volts output. Off to Halfords the next day and bought a calcium battery for £80. No problems since and start straight away.
Hope this helps and get your battery checked!!

Thanx for your reply regarding the battery light.

Just need to find out what the orange steering wheel on my dash means.

It might be related as the power steering on 1.8's is electronic and not belt driven.
