Ignition Cutting In And Out While Driving And Sometimes Cutting Out And Wont Restart

7 posts in this topic

my 1.4 focus mk1 is jittering sometimes while driving. its like it is cutting out and bump starting itself again. At higher speeds i get no problems. Sometimes in traffic and around town it cuts out completely and wouldnt start again untill i gave it a little bump in gear. It never showed anything on the dash out of the usual untill this morning when it cut out and wouldnt start and the immobaliser led flashed when key was off and just went out as soon as i turned the ignition on and the dash was showing ---.

It was starting when i finally got it into the car park but i am now worried if i will get back home again now.

Help please.

Hi Tommy,

You posted this in a less visited area, so moving it to the focus forum where you will get more hits.

With regards the cutting out, it could be as simple as a fuel filter replacement. If you floor it on the motorway does it cut out?

Turned out to be loose earth wires on the battery terminals.
