I acquired a 2004 ford focus last week that has very low miles on it and has been maintained well. Yesterday and this morning, the car would not start and the engine light came on; however, a jump start resolved the problem, temporarily. Any ideas what may be causing this problem?
I don't know what's normal about this car... I've had it a week and was driving across country all but the last few days. The battery still looks very new, but I will get it checked... that would be an easy fix. Thanks for your response.
