2005 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 71000 miles
I have had no issues with this car until a few days ago when I stopped at the store and once I came back it wouldn't start. I got a jump start which took 20 minutes, and got the car started, it then died slowly. The tow guy arrived and attached a jump start box and drove it onto his truck and then off of his truck into my driveway with no problems. I assumed it was the alternator, but then a battery test showed that my battery wouldn't hold any charge. I just put in a brand new (and charged) battery, and the engine won't even try to turn over. Am I now having problems with the alternator and the starter or is there another culprit here responsible for both?
have the same problem?
