Hi there thanks

Ok as you are receiving messages and have a no crank situation then the first place that must be inspected is connector c11A this is the large connector under the battery and on early 2008-2010 fiesta was prone to water ingress causing intermitent pin /connection issues

This commonly causes. A no communication concern with the PCM which in turn would give you a Immobilsor issue no crank and an airbag message as thefuel cut offsystem in the PCM is linked to the airbag system

This connector should be checked for any Ingress and also the wiring both sides should be stripped and investigated for any corrosion that can cause this issue

If you need anymore help or advice on this issue going forward please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
If you are satisfied thus far with my answer /advice
Kindest regards ***** ***** and have a nice day
any positive feedback /bonuses are kindly appreciated
