today i was driving to work and my focus took a shit. I was pulling in and my car made a wired noise it sounded like metal grinding. I stop and cut the car off and got out thinking whAT THE #$%^& i got back in to the car and it would not turn over so i tested the battery it was good try to jump it still no luck maybe the starter right, its a 5 speed so lets roll start it i let the clutch go in first and the front tires lock. one more time.. ssrrtt... #$%#$% the motor is locked down at 74,000 this don't make any sents help me!!!![rant]

Glad you have come to realize that it isnt the UDP. Are you the original owner??? Any other mods. How hard do you drive your Foci, what is your driving style????

Do u have a LSD? Any parts fall off the car or anything? Any light went off when this happened. Anything? Just cuz your car will not start doesn't mean it locked up.

Does it want to crank over, but doesn't have the umph?

Or does it not even crank?

Any noises when trying to start it?

if it cranks over but don’t start could be fuel related unplug the fuel line to fuel rail and see if there is fuel coming out when you crank it. If no there is a fuel kill switch on the passenger side under the glow box, if someone might kicked it and engaged it so you might not be getting any fuel. All you have to do is press the button down and youll be good again if that’s the problem. This happened to me. My car would crank over but would not start.
