Do you known any similar issues of the 2007 ford focus having no previous history of problem and then engine shuts down while driving. Could it be key switch, ecu, relay, wiring factory fault splice, or anything else
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Can you email print of wiring diagram of f9 fuse that powers circuits due to fuse blown. This circuit somewhere is shorted and no identity to what it powers. 20 amp

Oh my email is***@******.***
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 10 months ago.

Just to make sure I understand it will not crank with the key but will with a remote switch wired to the starter relay or starter motor. Is the theft light flashing with the key in the run position?

Below are those wire diagrams you asked for. I have highlighted everything powered from fuse 9 under the hood.
