04 focus jerks when I put. On reverse why?

Check your two engine mountings and the pitch control bar underneath. The right hand, oil filled mount has a tendency to collapse. The left mount is a solid rubber mount which can be checked from the underside, using a torch.

Why does my hazard lights come on and stay on while driving

If they magically start when the car is started, this is probably an aftermarket alarm being activated. It will cause the marker lights to flash for a period of time.

Car was parked overnight on a slight decline, the next morning when i went out to the vechile it had somehow released the brakes and rolled down and hit another car. the handbrake was still fully applied....

the handbrake emergency brake can slacken and need readjustment over time and this is proably what happened in your case, as far as your vehicle hitting another vehicle while parked even though you were not driving it you are still responsible for the cost of damages

If the '04 has the same setup as the '00, then there should be a switch on the top of the steering column that will turn the parking lights on or off even if the key is removed. Hope this helps.
