Car wont start. Right before abs and brake system light came on

My car has 1680000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there:

Although it’s highly unlikely that those two warning lights would cause the Ford Focus to not start, it might be an indication of a faulty electronic brake control module. There are some instances where multiple electrical faults can trigger an OBD-II code that will disable ignition system components; which is why it’s a good idea to have a mobile mechanic complete an engine is hard to start inspection before you have any repairs completed.
