Problem today just pulled up in car jumped out for 10 minutes jumped back in. Ignition on MK 3 Focus 1.0 litre eco boost just clicking. Fist thought dead battery . 7 days of warranty left okay I thought phoned AA.

Battery okay, oil level ok, starter motor just clicking,current going to starter. AA suggested towing and bump starting as starter may be stuck at some point. Had Ford escort starter motor problems so sounded reasonable.During tow lets clutch out in 2nd expecting engine to spring into life but nothing?????

AA man tried hand cranking engine wont budge, stuck diagnostic on, crank shaft alarm showing. So back to dealers once I call them tomorrow. AA man suggested starter motor jammed or engine seized. This is a worry. Can anyone shed any light on matter . Thanks

If the engine was seized then when you let the clutch out in 2nd gear the engine would not have turned over and the wheels would not have turned. Could easily be the sensor as the diagnostic showed...
