This is a follow up question the 2003 ford focus 2.3 litre it cuts out when idles and say the check engine light is off can you still retrieve the trouble code from the scanner, because the check engine light comes on for awhile then will go off but it still cuts out when idle?

Code readers will not pick up history codes. A regular scanner at a shop will do this

What are history codes this has been happening for about a month or so, at first when the check engine light came on it quit cutting out then when it went out it cut out at idle again, but it only did that a couple of times but now it cuts out at idle light on or off, so why is that and why is the light go on for awhile and go off for awhile?

Intermittent failure. We need the code to figure which direction to go on.
