Hey guys I have a 2007 ford xr6  6 speed auto its recently starting to give me grief I drive it for a little bit everything seems ok then boom it goes into like limp mode or some sh*t "D" starts flashing on dash flick it over to tiptronic wont go out of 3rd gear traction,abs,battery light all comes up on dash then it just putts out. So I get my mate to give me a jump start everything starts working again but only for a short while then it starts doing the same sh*t I just described again. 

 

So far ive brought a battery(new) and alternator(second hand) but it still keeps happening any ideas is this transmissions related or voltage problem?

that's a tricky one... battery being new and still causing it is definitely a weird behaviour... hopefully somebody else can help you more than I just did :)

hmm, get the charging system diagnosed to see if your second-hand alternator is actually working properly... as it might not be and it may have cooked your battery.

well, it sounds like the charging system is working, but to be sure I'd get it tested. The voltage is a good indicator, but not perfect.
