Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car will start up and while driving shit off with no electrical being on anywhere on the vehicle. Stop and the car restarts, sometimes coasting the car can be restarted. It may do it one time like in September then be good until November and then do it twice within a week. Took it to the ford service they put it on the machine to find a code. But there was no code. Drove it a few weeks after that and it did it again while pulling into a parking spot ,went dead like key was turned off  no power for door light nothing. Tried to start car and it started.. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this problem or what it is or causing the problem. Hope you can help me out

Well if it loses power then the codes are being wiped. You almost have to keep an OBD scanner hooked up while driving and catch the trouble code as it happens. In the meantime, I would take your battery in for testing at an auto store. I had a similar experience with a car totally shutting off and losing all power, and it was nothing more than a battery with a dead cell. If you do go to an auto store that does the free battery checks, have them check the alternator too.


could very well be the battery. but check all the battery connections too. especially the ground. and also where the ground hooks to the block, make sure clean and tight.
