Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
#1 Clean your Battery Post's and Battery Cable Connections with a Metal Battery Cleaner Brush.
Make sure the Battery Cables are tightened enough.
I just did my neighbor's van and that was the only problem prohibiting it from starting. It was also inhibiting a proper recharge of the battery from the alternator.
#2 When "jumping": was it Post to Post or Negative to Engine Block and Positive to Post? If so then check your Ground wire going to the Engine Block. Remove and using a metal brush - clean both the wire and the connection spot.
#3 What Fault Code is showing?
#4 Starter Relay possibly faulty. However starting with a "jump" all but rules this out. It again points back the Battery.
#5 Battery may be holding a charge, however whats is the Voltage? Below 10.5 and there is not enough power to Start the vehicle.

You dont need a computer. You need a new Body Control Module. Located under the center console but forward towards the dash. A very common problem with these cars. NOT A USED ONE....A NEW ONE. They are VIN specific.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have
the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty
alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will
surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be
replaced to resolve the problem.
If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator
then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's
service life and replacement will be necessary.
You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery
connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This
will reset the system and can get the battery light off.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
