Hi Ian,

If your car cuts instantly dead, and rolls to a stop, rather than cuts slowly like running out of fuel, there should be a code set in the ECM.

Can you get a scan done on the ECM, and the whole car if that is possible?

Hi Ian,

I can't see that one code causing your issue.

Can you swap the EFI relay with one like high beam etc?

It sounds like i need to take it in to someone would you say it's an auto electrician or mechanic I need to take it to
Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

Hi Ian,

I would recommend you take it to Ford, or a good mechanical workshop that has seen this before.

I have had many customers cars do this, where you may drive it for 2 days, and then just cut out, one took 2 minutes to fix and no parts to replace.

Hope you get it sorted soon.

I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.

Kind regards

Gary
