Question about 2001 Ford Focus
This sound usually means a dead battery. If not, check the wiring to and from the starter for a loose connection.
The most likely problem is that your battery is dying. If your car is clicking and not starting then I am assuming that your are jumping it to get it started. Then your alternator does it's job and charges the battery. In warmer weather and the heat of the engine, the battery holds a charge much better. This could be why you do not have issues in the later parts of the day. Then, over night... when the temperature drops the battery gets cold and dies by morning.
Take your car to an AutoZone or another Auto Parts Store and have them test the battery. If the battery tests good, then we go the wiring problem route. There could be a lose or bare wire that is getting a bad ground in the morning with condensation. After the car heats up this may not be an issue which is why you are not having problems in the afternoon.
My personal recommendation is to have the battery tested first thing. It is quick and easy. This could tell you that a fairly inexpensive fix could handle your car woes.
Post back and let me know if you have any more questions or need any more help.
