CAR CRANKS BUT WILL NOT START DEFINATELY NOT FUEL RELATED

2000 Ford Focus • 820,000 miles

Vehicle has been on the diagnostics computer apparently its a bad earth somewhere. Could this bad earth have anything too do with my stereo system, amplifiers and woofers if one of these lost their earth through a loose connection could this effect whether the car starts or not. Before the car packed up it was juddering over the road loss of power like a fuel problem it is a diesel (nightmare). And its recently had another fuel pump fitted and fuel filter.2 months ago. Please can you help. Many thanks

Did you have the fuel pressure checked? What computer? Was there a code? If there was, what was the code?

Bad grounds will cause all kind of issues. Get them checked, cleaned and tightened.
