    Hi to all,
    I have a 2007 Ford Focus 2.O L manual transmission, 3 door hatchback, and it is having electrical problems causing it to shut off dead.  This car ONLY has 12,000 miles on it.  Good thing is that I am leasing it for three years and the lease is about up.  I was thinking about purchasing, but now I will NOT purchase this car.  I will not ever buy a FORD or lease a FORD again, which at this point does stand for F.ound O.n R.oad D.ead, or F.ix O.r R.epair D.aily!
    This is ridiculous, this is a NEW ford focus with ONLY 12K miles, and this car is already breaking down!!!!!  This car is NEW and well kept!!!!!
    I think the problem is going to be the alternator, it is currently being towed to the Ford dealership.

2007 ford focus battery and abs light came on. Car slowly died.


When the car dies was the battery dead? If so you have a problem in the computer controlled alternator charging system. What that might be will require a trained Ford technician to diagnose the problem and repair the issue..

My battery dies i replaced a brand new alternator but still dosen't charge tomthe battery


The battery most likely has dead cells and not charging due to the alternator .The alternator is doing what it should, your battery just can't hold the charge the alternator is putting out. Go have the battery tested at a local auto zone or advance auto store. Free to check

2004 ford focus se replaced alternator couple of mnths ago went to start this morn battery dead charged battery still no start. jumped of another battery started but when removed jumper cables car died


Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.

Ford 2003 Expedition EB. Check Charging System


Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.

Battery light stays on


the battery light has nothing to do with the battery itself, it is indicating that there is a problem with the alternator that charges the battery, most likely a defective rectifier bridge diode has failed.

I have replaced alternator two time and need another


take it to a dealer or a local shop because it sounds like you have a wiring problem. Try this first, start the car and remove the positive battery cable and if the car dies it is your alternator or a wiring problem, if it does not die that it is more that likely your battery. take your battery into advance auto parts or auto zone and have your battery tested. i would do the same with my alternator also.(Just to be safe)
