I just bought a focus 1.6 tdci and serviced it, started it up and it fired up 1st turn of the key and ran for 2 - 3 minutes then died i then attempted to start the car and it just turned over , i checked the fault codes and u1900 (Can Bus Fault) was stored, as well as another one for the instrument cluster which pretty much said that the car was immobilised and another code relating to insufficient security data i reset the codes and attempted the start the car to no avail, i then attempted to jump start it and it just turned over, i checked the battery and the positive terminal has been arcing so i fixed it the speedo then started displaying ------ and now it wont even turn over i then charged the battery overnight and checked all the fuses (3 amp in engine bay etc) tried again today and the immobilizer flashes 16 times (Can Bus Fault) Before the car died autocom could connect to all the ecu's/systems on this car but now the main ecu wont respond, anyone had this issue? anyone got any ideas how to start this car?
