Question about 2005 Ford Focus
The other day my tire went flat. I put the spare on and on the way home the traction control started coming on. I got a new tire but the traction control keeps coming on and the car starts to die. HOWEVER if I turn the traction control on it works perfectly.

SOURCE: car just started dying
You may have a bad alternator causing the entire vehicle to run off of the battery and not recharging it. Simple test, have it running and momentarily disconnect the battery cable, ither positive or negitive, and if the car dies as soon as you lift the cable, it's not charging. remove your alternator, and visit a local advance auto or autozone with it, and they can test it for free. Also check your fuses and fusable links, as one of them may have been blown.

check all of the vaccum lines and the one behind the throttle body also try some STP gas treatment and if this helps replace your fuel filter also make sure you have at less a half tank of gas before you add the STP.

Main fuse or fusible link blown? What led to the need for replacement batteryand jump any symptoms?

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.
