Ford Focus Service Manual: Information And Message Center

Ford Focus Service Manual / Body / Driver Info & Control / Information And Message Center

The message center is a fixed-format display integrated into the Instrument Cluster (IC) . The message center functions are controlled by the 3-button message center switch (located in the instrument panel center finish panel). The message center displays important vehicle information by constantly monitoring different vehicle systems. The message center notifies the driver of potential vehicle concerns by displaying a warning message pertaining to the system in which a fault has been detected.

The full-function message center provides the following features:

The message center information can be selected through a set of 3 buttons:

Setup Displays

The setup (SETUP button) displays are timed modes and terminate after a finite interval. As part of the setup menu, the message center has the capability to configure items such as units (English or metric), to enable/disable a variety of options such as autolock and auto-unlock, or to carry out calibrations/settings on items such as oil life.

On configurable items such as autolock and auto-unlock, the message center indicates the appropriate selection (ON/OFF) by bracketing the selection. For example, if the driver selects the autolock feature on, the message would display as follows: AUTOLOCK 〈ON> OFF. If the driver selects the autolock off, the message would display as follows: AUTOLOCK ON 〈OFF>. For information on configurable items, refer to the Owner's Literature.

The message center displays OK for approximately 2 seconds if the system check does not detect a fault in the system and displays a warning message for approximately 2 seconds if the system check detects a fault in the system.
