Warning lights on Ford Focus even when vehicle is off

Why are my warning lights on Ford Focus even when vehicle is off

Shops are reporting Warning lights on Ford Focus even when vehicle is off problems with late model Ford Focus vehicles, or flicker while driving. This can happen to the oil light, brake light, ABS light individually, in combination, or all of them.

Here’s the fix:

Remove the instrument cluster and clean the printed circuit board with rubbing alcohol. Then coat the entire circuit board with di-electric grease. Ford is finding that mold growth on the circuit board bridges the circuits together and causes these symptoms.
