Hey all. So I have a 2007 focus and I'm having some issues. Hopefully someone can help.
While driving yesterday, the car lost some power, it just got weak. I drove it today and and it was fine for a few minutes, then it got weak again. I turned the car off and it wouldn't start again, as if the battery was dead, just barely turning over. I jump started it, drove home, it was running right again. After I got home, I turned it off and it started right up. I started it around 10 times
Any thoughts on what the problem could be??

Thanks

Sounds like your alternator is gone,
I'm not familiar with a 2007 focus, does it have a battery gauge in it?
or do you have a multimeter at home to check it?

No guage, just the battery icon. And it did come on right before the power loss the 1st time. But it went off after around 2 minutes.
And I don't have a multimeter.

i would take the car to a shop and have them test your alternator.

Test the alternator and battery while you are at it. In the meantime make sure your ground cable is grounded well to the car with no corrosion or rust.
