    ford focus 2003 killing itself

    So I parked my 2003 ford focus 1.4 cl piece of crap up last Friday and went to Devon on holiday with the family. Just got back and tried to move my focus off the drive. A misfire on all cylinders and it died. It re fired but had a terrible misfire and sounds like it's running on 2 and sometimes 3 cylinders. I took it for a drive to morrisons to try and clear it and then the airbag light had just come on aswell. Drove home and it's still misfiring and airbag light on. I've tried the swearing and hammer route but no luck. I don't understand modern stuff and I'm stuck for ideas??

    Any ideas??

    Thanks in advance

    Plug leads are a prob on these, probs damp with being stood, pull all your leads and liberally spray with WD40, give the plugs a quick clean before you start up aswel it might be enough or leads may be requiired.
    Airbag light could do with a code read but you could start by checking wiring under the seats that move forwards and back.

    Just had a look. Che l each plug and fired it up and It's no' 1 cylinder that isn't firing. No'1 cylinder appears to be the duff one.

    Can one cylinder just die on a coil pack??
