    Good to know - least it wasn't something massively wrong with it ie gear box or something else that forced you to buy another car

    That's an odd one to blow, could be a sign of other underlying problems.

    No usually its done by the immobiliser or a cut off valve... However I suspect the fuel pump fuse was in the box under the bonnet and not the one under the glove box, if so Focuses like to let water in, and the fuse might of just gotten a bit of damp in.

    Well they said watch the fuel pump, if the fuse goes again I'll need a new one. Going to take it in for a service shortly.

    £40 for the flatbed hire - (Birmingham Vehicle Recovery - Car Transport - Car Towing Company) and then £5 + VAT for the part at the garage - no labour cost!

    I hope it was more of a fuse than just a little normal blade one though that's about 20p's worth of fuse.

    My Ford Focus 15amp fuse which relates to the fuel pump keeps blo...
