Took car to garage who diagnosed it as an ABS module failure. They quoted about 800 to repair. However when they cleared it with the diagnostic computer it started again. I drove it for about two or three days and it stopped again as before. Got towed to yet another Ford garage and they diagnosed it as an alarm module fault. Each garage I go to comes up with something different. I got them to change it and it has been starting ever since when I check it each morning. However I have it parked up and changed to a Cmax. I just don't and won't trust the Smax any more. It's now for sale.

I had this problem as well and my garage tracked it to a faulty internal intrusion detection device that caused a catastrophic electrical failure in the car! A complicated way of saying that one of the sensors has a short and stuffed the car..

Fixed in 3 hours..
