Ford Focus mk2.5 start problems


Recommended Posts

So I have a 2009 Ford Focus 1.6 petrol.

Car usually starts fine but every so often it won't start, I just get a clicking noise from the engine bay. Both the battery and alternator were replaced this month due to other problems, so I don't beleive it's the battery. Tried to jump start the car last time this problem happened also, didn't help. 

Anyone have any idea what the problem could be? I thought it may be the starter motor or something but really not sure as I'm not a mechanic.

Any help would be appreciated,

cheers in advance
