Hello everyone, I am hoping someone on here could please help me out? I drive a 2006 Ford Focus. Last night, when I turned on my car, a number of things happened. (I should add that it was very cold, if that makes a difference) 1) My dashlights no longer work. The warning lights work fine, and I have checked the dial to make sure they are turned up, but I can no longer see what speed I am going when it is dark. 2) My taillights no longer work. One of the bulbs had previously blown, but now, the only ones that work are the rear blinkers. 3) My left driver side headlight is no longer working. 4) My trunk randomly kept popping open as I was driving. It has stopped doing so, but I am not sure if the problem is gone for good.
The mechanic wants to charge me $100 / hr just to even check the problem and indicated the diagnostics may take several hours. Having just replaced two tires, that option is far beyond my means. Any suggestions / thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
