Ford Focus

my 2006 ford focus 1800 sport has been intermittingly draining the battery. I do not use the car a lot but when it has been driven for aaprox 20 miles then parked overnight it turns over once and then the battery is completely flat. I tend to use the car approx. 4 times a week for about 10 to 20 miles each time. The battery was changed a year ago for the same reason. I recently got the reversing sensors and reversing sensors fixed with a new bulb and switch in the engine for the sensors . the car was parked for 2 weeks and started first time. This lasted for about a week and then started to drain again. I took the car to an auto spark who said he would look at the vehicle but it could end up taking about 3 weeks to find the fault. He could not give me any idea of what it would cost. If the vehicle was tested on a diagnostic machine would that identify the problem. Please advise me what to try next.

Ford Focus 2014 plate I bought this focus from motor point, only 1 previous ownerand within one month the "change oil light" came on followed shortly by "engine malfunction service now" warning message. Returned to motor point and the light was simply turned on and assured the dash board hadn't been serviced but the car was fine. Then the same messages returned Feb and I was told its due to the number of miles now looking for a service. Serviced in March and lights turned off although I asked Arnold Clark ford dealer to double check the issue. Month later lights returned again. Car taken back to Arnold Clark who had to change oil and run the car for miles to regenerate the filters which was Done in May. Now early Aug the lights have returned again Does anyone else have this issue and if so any resolutions? Or is this an underlying issue with the car?

You may need a new cam sensor. Mine had a similar problem 3 months ago. Take it to a garage and get them to see if there is an error code in the engine management system, even if your E.M. light is not on, as mine wasn't but there was an entry for the cam sensor having failed. liz from City of Derby
