2001 Focus Wagon starting issues
My 2001 Focus was parked at an airport long-term parking for 6 weeks. When I returned to pick it up it would not start. When I turned the key to start it would not turn over the motor. The dash warning lights and headlights would light up so I didn't think the battery was dead but I tried to jump and push start it to no avail. I had it towed to a Tire Kingdom and the mechanic tried everything to start it as well but no luck. He did a code search and cleared any codes (not sure if there was any) and then it started.
I picked it up and it would start fine with one key but it would not start with my extra key. I started to drive home and stopped and shut off the motor, came back and once again it would not start. I tried turning the key over, turning it on and off, and somehow it started again. I made it home and it would start fine with both keys for a couple of days.
I went to start it again today and it wouldn't start once again. I turned the key on and off, removed it and turned it over a couple and it started once again.
I bought this car for my wife to take our son to school and I worried it may strand her someday.
Any suggestions as to what the problem is?
