borrowed neighbours FordFocus 2013. Now it's dead. Please help me.

Asked by GuyWithABrokenCarTod... Mar 26, 2019 at 01:24 AM about the 2011 Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my neighbours are away for 5 more days. And I was borrowing their car for the
day (with allowance ofcourse). I returned it, but left the lights on the whole night. In
the morning I tried to push the start button, but it started to flicker all the lights. And
the dashscreen kept saying crazy things like "wheel pressure low", "can't find the
key", "take to service", etc. I kept turning it off and on (stupid as I am) until it finally
went totally dark. No lights, no respons, nothing.. I tried to jumpstart it - doesn't
work. I cleaned the poles of the battery - they're fine. I've checked the fuses - all
Anyone got some ideas what to do here?? Need some quick help!

Call AAA, or a similar service. When you jumped the car and it didn't start, you might not have done it correctly; for a novice, it's easy to screw this up.

I have starter cables that show if the connection is good, so I think that's not the problem.
