SOURCE: Ford Focus occasional starting problems.

Hey there...

Although I'm questioning why it would be doing this mostly on cold mornings, I would suggest that you check your battery connections. 99 times out of 100, the reason that this happens is because one of the battery cables does not have a good connection (Many times it's the ground wire). If you check to make sure that the connections on both ends of both cables are tight, then try taking your vehicle to your local parts store to have them do a load test on your battery. It's possible that the c.c.a. (cold cranking amps) are no longer sufficient to start your car. After awhile, batteries tend to lose their charge due to age, how many times it has been discharged completely, and also frequent cold weather. I believe that this should solve things, but feel free to contact me to ask about any other possibilities that may be causing this, as I'll look into any other similar common issues on your particular make and model. Should be battery cables or battery itself, though. Hope this helps and have a great day!

SOURCE: car engine wont turn over

it sounds like either the key is going bad (chip inside) or the PAT's immobilizer system is not detecting a key is inserted with the correct code. If you remove the column surround you will see connectors just make sure all of these are secure, watch the yellow one do not disconnect it as its the airbag and theres a chance of it deploying.
Also try your spare ignition key if you have one.

If all is ok i'm afraid you may need to make a trip to ford for them to diagnose, the pat's system works well almost too well sometimes. i deal alot with them while installing remote starts and when they go wrong its almost always the dealer to resolve it. They have the computer software to test the system.
Sorry,

SOURCE: Starter will not turn over

I had this problem and had my vehicle towed to two different places and was out a lot of money to find out it was the key. The security code had reset itself and the explorer acted as if it were being stolen therefore not allowing it to start. It has to be fixed by an authorized Ford Dealership. No one else has the ability to fix it. I hope this helps you not to have to pay two machenics for one problem. Thanks

Ford focus won't turn over ,was fine this morning parked up now won't start getting whinning sound from side of engine


If the temperature is low, then the engine might have struck up. You need to give heat and then try starting. If you still face the problem, then open the front and check if any wires have been cut off or else call or an mechanic to solve the problem,

Thanks

I have a 2004 ford pick-up 4x4 5.7 V8. When the alarm goes of f the engine turns over too slow to start. thank you


There is a good possibility that your battery is shorting out. The alarm can trigger when it detects tampering which can be when someone tries to jump the alarm or starter. The battery cables can also be dirty which can also cause the current to interrupt. The alarm is suppose to cut off the power to the starter or ignition. If the engine still turns over the problem could just be the battery.

I had a new 1988 Lincoln with a bad battery and the alarm would activate on its own.

Wife is stuck with sister, her ford focus 2005 key fob was lost at a shopping center she has key but without the key fob the alarm can't be turned off and the car will not start. Is there any easy fix to...


I am not a Ford expert but has she tried unlocking the car with the outside driver's door key cylinder? This works on most makes and models to disarm the alarm.
