2005 ford focus will not start. No clinking noises, no power to anything. We switched out the battery worked for a bout 2 weeks now samething! We try to jump start it but nothing.

Those cars are problematic. A couple of years back, I worked on a 2005 ford focus, and it had a recurring problem. The battery and alternator had been replaced about 3 or 4 times, and the fix would be only temporary. I did a little investigating, and discovered that the alternator was overcharging the battery. Checked all the system wiring, and it was all good. The alternator wiring, however, was melted from the heat apparently caused from the overvoltage. Replaced the affected wiring, and swapped out the alternator, but the damned thing was still overcharging. Unfortunately, I never was able to come to a conclusion as to why the alternator was overcharging. One thing I can tell you is that this charging system is computer controlled by a module in the instrument panel, if i recall correctly. I did not want to pursue the matter any further. If they make the cars any more damned complicated, they will be flying to the Moon!! I was done with it.
