from what ive read up its 1 of 2 things either the dash is at fault ie the dials etc which can cause stalling and no starting or the likely possibility is the ecu is faulty not giving signals to the coil pack and therefore no starting rapid flashing of the alarm blinker can be an ecu and management fault looks like another ecu though ide either get them to find whats causing it something has to be wether its a high resistance from a wire somewhere god only knows ide also consider if its even possible depending how long youve owned the car etc to get it replaced and let ford know that its not on
