Has anybody any ideas as to why a 2010 ford kuga would cut out whilst driving. Above are the fault codes. Garage recons electrical fault but doesn't know what.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks

It really is all there in the fault codes. TBH

If the position sensors are faulty then they need replacing. If your garage cannot understand the codes listed, sorry but it's time to find another garage as the codes are pretty explicit in describing the fault(s) with your car

So multiple sensor faults I'm guessing, I've got it booked into an auto electrician but not until later on in the week. I'm assuming this is something I can't sort myself.
I understand the fault codes are self explanatory to those in the trade/with knowledge however could you please assist someone who isn't car orientated as to what sensors are at fault.

Hi Sam01, actually there is no straight answer to this, because faulty CKP sensor could be the easy answer or just one of many electrical issues, the good garage ( or person ) should start from somewhere (error codes are good place) and check one by one. In my experience bad CKP usually shows issue when car is hot, on cold engine is relatively okay. The specs of the sensor are available in the web somewhere and can be checked with multimeter in most cases. But since you have more than one code good garage according to me should start from the electric diagram of the car and to check if these sensors share something (computer, electric loom, connector, ground ) because in many cases we can see corroded connector ( or wet with water, coolant oil and etc) rusted or loosen ground.

So to me first locate all the suspect, trace the cables, check the connectors, check the grounds if you find specs of the sensors measure them.
Bad computer is possible but I will leave this as last option.

Sorry, I thought that a garage had read the codes. If you are not oriented then it is probably best to simply say that the fault codes indicate errors with the crank position sensor it can cause the crankshaft signal to be cut off while the engine is running, which can cause the engine to stall. This is usually a symptom of a wiring problem, however a defective crankshaft position sensor can also produce this symptom. That covers three or possibly four of your fault codes

The Diesel Intake Air Flow Position Sensor (DIAFPS) is usually bolted to the throttle body mounted to the intake manifold or in a tube in the intake air stream. The DIAFPS sensor converts the incoming airflow volume into an electrical signal for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). If faulty it can cause stalling or prevent starting.

Both are DIY fixes if you know what you are doing. Forgive me, but I sense that this is not the case and you are better off leaving it to a garage or specialist to fix.

I greatly appreciate the information from all posts. I will leave this for the auto electrician to sort. Thanks Sam

The kuga has been sat at home for 7 days, eventually got it into the auto electrician. As the previous garage wiped the fault codes (although I've a photo of the fault codes and shown him these) the auto electrician is uncertain on how to proceed as his equipment wasn't showing any issues.
His words, a needle in a haystack and to run the kuga until it fails again and then get it recovered to his unit.
Not really ideal tbh. I'm currently unsure what to do.

Thanks for the update! We have the saying - good errors will come back 🧐
Even it may cost something, you may try to get second opinion too.
