CLICKING NOISE

2007 Ford Focus • 2.0L 4 cylinder Turbo Manual •

Broke down a week ago due to broken alternator ( AA advise ) we have put a new battery a new alternator and a new starter motor on the car the reason for new starter motor as because when we put the new alternator on the engine management came on again, the car seemed to be running fine for a coupe of days then died we then put the starter motor on as there was a clicking noise however the car still wont start and the clicking noise remains we're totally out of ideas, might it be electrical? As I'm recovering from cancer and don't get sick pay we honestly don't have the funds to take it to a garage any advise will be very much appreciated thanks for your time

If you disconnected the battery the anti theft has to be reset if no manual check on line how to do it. Then it should start.

Hi thank you very much for your advice however the battery has been disconnected twice before once when the alternator was mended and of course when we had a new battery and the car stared straight away both times it was around 3 days later the engine light came on and the clicking noise started then it died so changed the starter motor yes again we disconnected the battery but this time it remains dead and the noise is still there what do you think should we still try your advice.

Thanks a million

Try resetting anti theft then check battery for condtion includling load test. Also check the things I've pointed out in first pic. Then check the two items in the second pic. For the relay switch with another like relay to see If it makes a difference.
