i had this fault...if your battery is good and your alternator is good i bet my right nut on the smart charge cable on either the red or blue cable...mine was the blue cable in the wheel arch.

yeah apparently those cable suffer an internal death...aka corroding from inside out. well this is true to the mondeo, focus and transit (more commonly reported on transit).
