There is a problem with the electronics on your vehicle. Your vehicle is sluggish because it has gone into limp mode. This allows the vehicle to run, but run poorly so you can get it somewhere to be fixed. I'm sorry but I don't have a code book for Fords. But, you can call a Ford dealership and ask for the service department and have them look up the code by number and they can tell you the definition of the code. But, it can relate to many different systems linked to your problem. Electronic parts are very expensive and if you just guess at them it could be costly.
Keep in mind if you buy a part that is electronic and it does not solve the problem they will not allow you to return it. Hope this gives you some guidance to your dilemma.

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.!!!

You are not the only one. Ive met a good many of Saturn owners (most were 2001 L300 drivers) but they were plagued with the problem you have and practically identical codes. The following remedies have been known to work:
1. Replacement Battery Cable
2.Replacement ECU Wiring Harness
3. Replacement of ECU

The clicking noise is normal when a battery is almost fully discharged - it's the starter solenoid making the noise. The gauges will react accordingly.
You have to ask yourself why the battery has run down before ordering a new one. Is it very old, is the alternator not charging, is the drive belt loose and so on.
Try putting the battery on charge and if possible remove the top so you can see the acid levels. Top up with distilled water and leave on full charge overnight. Then check and see if bubbles are coming from each cell (do not smoke anywhere near a battery being charged). If no or few bubbles are coming from one cell then the battery is defective. If you think it looks ok then put it back on the car. Get someone to operate the starter and look closely at the battery cells. If one of them is fizzing away then the battery is definitely defective.
However, if all appears well then check the play on the drive belt. If that's ok then consult an auto electrician to carry out a more detailed analysis.
