Question about 2001 Ford Focus
While slowing down at a stop sign, the car shut off. When I tried to restart it, nothing would happen, instrument lights were off, no sound, nothing. The radio would turn on, the interior lights work, the remote would unlock and lock the doors and I just replaced the battery a week ago.
Check the batterie again also try to jump start the car, and if it does run while you jump start it, then most likelly your alternator is not chargin

Engine stalling and rough run
issue at low speeds
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
