Question about 2000 Ford Focus
My ford focus has an intimitent starting problem, which seems to be getting worse. I thought It had been resolved as I had ford do a diagnostics check and they said that was fine, and all it needed was a new battery, so thats got changed 3-4 months ago and has been great.
Just lately over the past 2 weeks it hasnt started twice. All the dash lights up, it just wont turn over at all. A friend of mine said dip the accelarator incase I flooded it to release the fluid, which I did do, but it still hasnt worked.
What else could be wrong with it!''
I'm thinking more along the lines of the Immobilser now !
I want this car to last another year as it it is nearly 10 year old, and I would benefit from a new car with scrappage allowance.
Not familiar with immobiliser. i would check connections between ignition switch and starter relay and connections between starter relay and starter, in other words that whole starter circuit. some of the connections may be weak where they go to power or ground. new battery makes it work okay, then it after while not so good makes me suspect those connections. it could also be a starter problem, might be a burnt place on the starter, when the starter motor stops in a certain place it can't get good connection and so won't let current pass, motor can't turn, no start. hope this helps.
