2001 ford focus not starting always

Asked by Jun 20, 2017 at 08:42 PM about the 2001 Ford Focus SE Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My ford focus is a 2001 wagon I had everything
replaced including battery alternator ignition
thermostat fans etc. I had the battery the
alternator and a engine check machine plugged in
and everything is good. The car seems to not want
to start after A.C. is used or when I leave it on and
if I wait a few minutes it'll turn on I always get the
battery and lights to come on at the least for while
I was jumping it and it was working but now a jump
won't fix the problem. And it doesn't not always
start it after using it it happens after sitting over
night as well. I had the battery connections
cleaned too. After i get it to turn over occasionally
it will make a scraping type noise for a second. I
don't know what it could be
