Mine did it when on motorway 90mph outside lane....10mph school run... accelerating slowing down constant speed, revs would drop then silence, sometimes dip the clutch and blip the throttle would save a dive to the inside, but any time randomly really. I had a new gearbox 6mths ago due to reverse dropping onto the road, speed sensor was replaced, never cut out since....but fuelling issues are rife on fords too i have an 09 trannie too, also intermittant cut out fault, rumoured to be a throttle sensor........I reckon I know what it'll be!!!!

Cool cheers. Amp/sub is one pre wired unit so only needs one power lead  Will pop down to road radio, was just thinking that maybe the connectors shouldnt meet on the terminal, motor home batteries have a little bank of 10mm's on a plate round the +terminal  I was just thinking more along those lines....

Upon searching through this forum....  I might just pull the entire wire for the sub/amp,  while looking for any cuts and grounding that may have caused my little woe....... and lay a new one!

Questions if I may,


1,Should the sub/amp be on its own connector on the battery terminal?, i just had a ring connnector on top of the other connectors held on by the 10mm bolt,


2, The Earth cable for sub/amp I just had screwed to the metal work in side the boot area, should that earth really be run all the way from the battery?


I want me focus flamin for the right reasons, and not my because of my wiring.......

c'set la vie! However I may have eliminated the culprit....sub power lead a bit melty, 10a in line  fuse didnt go which started the emulsification in the other lead  on harness. Took sub out of equation, battery sparked and she fired into life! Off to garage to while its running to see if how deep this may run.........keep you posted
