2004 Focus - Not starting

Unread post by nbraddoc » Mon Aug 18, 2014 11:29 am

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?

it is normal for the check engine light to be on if the key is in the run position and the engine is not running. is the light on while the engine is running?

how old is your battery? I would recommend that you have your battery checked and your charging system tested.

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.

I think you should replace your battery.
