Car cutting in and out after driven for a couple miles

So a new problem came up. I was driving down the road and my abs and taction control light came on, so i shut it off and it wouldnt start back up until after sitting for a while. When i got it running and drove down the road the gauge cluster quit working and there was no throttle respose off and on, so i shut it off and no it acts like the battery is dead which i then checked and its not dead and theres no codes

From what ive seen on other vehicles when the traction control light and abs lights comes on usually means the car jumped time, just hopeing to get some other ideas and hope its not that

Explain how that makes sense lol, those lights being on because of jumped timing.

You're having electrical issues, and sometimes some weird stuff will happen. Have your battery tested, you say it's good but not how you tested it and what you think good means. Take it to a parts store and have them test the battery and alternator.

When a SVT jumps time it bends valves bucko. Dunno what apejaw tribe thinks jumping time results in ABS and traction lights, that is positively neanderthal.

Im use to hondas, ive seen a couple hondas like crvs ect when they jump a tooth traction control and power steering lights come on from experience, and i know theyre interference motors but one tooth off shouldnt bend a valve cause honda motors are interference motors as well and ive seen them jump time and still run and be able to be put back in time and be fine. Maybe ford is just tighter clearances, idk. Im still learning about the ford life
