Ford focus wont start

Hi i have a ford focus edge 16v 1.8 just bought it 2 weeks ago from a garage. the engine maintenance light came on 2 days ago so i booked it in my garage tomorrow 4 them to check it out however when i went to start it this afternoon it wouldnt start. has been working perfectly fine this morning. there is no noise when starting the engine and the lights on the dash temporarily flash and then when the key is turned all the way they all go off along with the clock. the headlights do not work either. do you think this sounds like a battery problem or could it be a problem with the immobiliser/starter motor or alternator?

Check the make sure the battery connectors are connected. Sometimes the cable comes loose from the battery. Check your battery see if a jump will start it. If it does it could be your battery.

Ford Focus 55 Plate, Engine Light Comes On and Goes


Not uncommon for Ford focus coil packs to play up I've replaced a few I would recommend, replace coil pack and have leads. If you have car serviced at the regular service interval the plugs should be ok.

My 2003 ford focus ZTS dohc 16v leaks water (not coolant)


There are only 2 ways water can appear that I know of.
(1) Naturally occurring from combustion while you warm up the engine. It lays in the exhaust until it evaporates with heat or makes its way out little bleed holes in the mufflers.
(2) Air conditioner condensation off the evaporator which is SUPPOSED to drop thru a drain hose to the street. The hose can get plugged and it could leak out higher up maybe.
Your air conditioner works even in cooler temps to dehumidify the windshield(in DEFROST or MIX modes). This resulting water is supposed to drain thru that hose off your heater plenum.

could be the belt tensioner is bad. That will loosen the belt so the car battery goes weak and will make a bad noise. Could have gotten a defective alternator.

Ford focus zetec 1.6 auto, Misfiring and no power


It's normal for the cat to get hot - given they've replaced everything (just about) that could cause your problem - they have not looked at the injectors and O2 sensors. If you had something burning in the engine bay it was most likely electrical and you should look for burnt wires. You probably have a short in the ignition system or fuel injector wire harness. It's nearly impossible to diag a problem like this without having the car first hand. It must be throwing check engine light codes. Get the codes and post them. Also try a different shop at this point.

Ford Focus Engine System Fault warning light


yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!
