Focus 1.8 wont start !

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, need your help

For the last few days when starting the ignition my Focus 1.8 petrol has been making a short clicking noise and the warning sound for when the headlights are left on when leaving the car has been sounding for a second or two. The car then starts and everything is fine......until this morning !

I turned the key to position 2 and the dash lights all lit up etc as usual, then when i tried to start the ignition in position 3 nothing happened apart from a constant ticking/clicking noise. Had to get a lift to work this morning, need some advice for when i return home tonight. Please help !

Thanks

Michelle

the best thing you can do is jump start the car and then pop round to a friendly garage to get the alternator and battery voltage checked,normally the alternator voltage output will be 13.5-14 volts if this is ok sospect the battery not holding charge,if the alternator and battery is ok it could be the starter motor or an overnight drainage on your battery from something
