2004 Ford Focus question

Question Description

I am looking into buying a used 2004 Ford Focus, but first I would like to see If a problem can be fixed. The owner said that when the battery got replaced the check engine light came on and you have to turn the overdrive off every time you start the car and that it was a bug in the wiring contracted after the battery was put in. Can this be fixed? If so, how?

Final Answer

there should not be over drive on a ford focus... that sounds totally absurd - I would NOT buy this car unless the dealership can MAKE the light go off and stay off!
