Car just dies, Help!!

16 May 2009 - 09:42 AM

I have a 2003 Focus 1.8 TDCi, in the last week it has just stopped 5 times. I'm driving along and the engine just stops and the engine preheat light flashes. Sometimes it will start again straight away and other times it takes about 10 minutes before it will start again. The first time it happened I had the breakdown people out and they said that it was a fuel problem and I had some crap in my fuel that had got into my injectors. I have tried injector cleaning stuff in the fuel and it has done nothing.

Is there anything I can do or does it have to go to the garage? or is it something else?

Alarm problems

I have a 2003 Focus Zetec TDCI and am having problems with the alarm, key fob.
First problem, the fob only works when it is right next to the car and when the button is pressed hard. Is this the battery?

Secondly, the alarm doesn't always switch off when I unlock the car and it doesn't beep or flash. This is obviously a problem as the alarm has gone off loads and I have to lock and unlock the car about three times before it starts to work properly. What is causing this? Could this be the battery in the fob?
