Question about 2009 Ford Focus
I came home to find the rear lights and front amber lights on, I used my key fob to open the car and the lights went out. I tested the car to see if the battery had died and the car started up so I figured someone triggered the security system (Karr Alarm). Went to start my car a couple of days later and the car was dead. Replaced the battery and noticed the front amber lights came on despite the lights being turned off and the car off. Fearing the battery would die, I have been disconnecting the battery until I need to drive it but now I am experiencing other issues like the door locks opening or closing while driving at highway speeds and 30-40 minutes into my commute. My AC has also suddenly acted up, the AC works but will only blow to the floor regardless of any settings I set the AC to.
Check if there is a recall on this with your local ford dealer - it sounds familiar. Otherwise, take it to a local "auto electric" shop. Google that phrase with your city name and zip code. Something will usually come up. Most mechanics are not good at solving electrical problems.

Sound like the car is not recharging the battery as you drive. Take it to a different shop and ask them to test the alternator and entire charging system as well as the battery.

This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.

Check out page 57 of the manual:
If that doesn't work, it sounds like a trip to the dealer.
