Hi folks I have a 53 plate 2.0 tdci zetec and after driving the car this afternoon, there is now no power at all to it. I went to pick up my daughter from school and noticed the Ignition warning light still on, parked up at the school and after getting the little one, started up again and had the same issue. Set off up the road and then lost power steering, ABS and ESP, started to slow down and the car then just cut out completely. All the electrics are completely dead, there is nothing! :-( I had someone come along to try a jumpstart but still no joy, no power at all. I phoned Ford and they want £80 (1 hour labour) just to run a diagnostic check on it.... anyone know if it could just be a battery/alternator fault or could it be more sinister?? Could I just take it to Kwikfit or somewhere like that for them to test for a battery fault as they normally do it free of charge?? Unfortunately, I can't afford to pay out to get it fixed or anything at the moment, as sod's law would have it, I spent all my spare money for this month getting the Kitchen and Bathrooms re-tiled!!!! Any help greatly appreciated Many thanks Dan
