Cutting Out Problem
Posted 25 June 2012 - 11:29 PM
we are having a problem with our s max and not sure what it is, it can be ok for a while then you could go out then it would just cut out at a junction or similar places and we carnt get it started.
How we get it started back up is we have to get another car to connect jump leads to it and then it starts back up, dont think its a battery problem as its always fullly charged when previously tested
Its getting that bad that we are looking at selling the car, car is a 56 plate s max titanium

Its not the battery as we have had this checked and its always had a good charge so garage rulled out the battery.
Ford want £98 to do a diagnostic check on it to see if they can find anything

have you taken a looksie on the smax forum?

For the sake of £50 or whatever Costco charge for them these days, I'd just swap the battery - as has been said, it's likely to be at the end of it's life anyway irrespective of whether it's causing your issue, so you may as well replace it first as a DIY fix and see if it cures your problem.

we left it a while and then got it jumped back off and carried back onto london and then back to yorkshire a few hrs later. it doesnt happen all the time just occasionally.
Some one said it could be alarm doing it but not sure
