Re: Car will not start

I got my car back on Tuesday after its 3rd dealer visit for the SSN problem. The first time was in January, the longest I've had the car since then was most of the month of June. After driving only the Volt for the past 2 months I really forgot how much more I like driving the FFE. This time the de...

Re: Car will not start

Well it almost a month since my last post, and the fix has held so far! I have put nearly 2k more miles on my 2013, and a helluva lot of power on/off cycles, and various combos of home charging and public charge stations, and so far so good. It would have been nice to have gotten the bigger battery ...

Re: Car will not start

It has been almost two weeks now and the car is still behaving, and I have but a lot of new miles on it since getting it back, along with multiple power on/off cycles and charge cycles on my home and public chargers, as well as having it unplugged all night at the hotel I stayed in last night. My us...

Re: Car will not start

My saga is at its end at long last! I talked to the service assistant today, and the work is finally done. The engineer from Ford was here for 2-3 days, after a good 2 weeks before of solid prep work, and he did some custom programming at the dealer, and the car passed all the tests finally, and the...

Re: Car will not start

Update! That right. An update on a situation that was supposedly over. I do not own the car any more. Ford should know this, right? Nope. I was just contacted by Ford Corporate. They have agreed to buy back my car as the engineering Dept has basically given up trying to fix it. But wait, the dealer...

Re: Car will not start

:shock: wait when did your car first go in? The first service visit for this problem would have been in March this year (it feels likes its been an eternity). Still in the same situation as my last post, nothing new from Ford yet as to when then Ford engineer is going to show up yet. In the mean ti...

Re: Car will not start

So here it is, nearly October, and I am still without my Focus... Ford finally responded to the dealer, and approved the TCM replacement (not cheap either, that is setting them back $11 grand since the TCM is actually upside the motor, as such the entire motor has to be replaced). So I was actually,...

Re: Car will not start

UPDATE: Just renewed my loaner for the THIRD time now (3rd 28-day loaner period), I find out that Ford is making the dealer jump through all sorts of hoops, despite the fact the tech knows its the TCM, so they made them swap out a wire harness, that failed, then Ford made them swap out the PCM, they...

Re: Car will not start

Well looks I just joined this illustrious group of "Stop Safely Now" people. I bought a used FFE 2013 w/ 35k miles on it from a local deal about 2 months ago, and it has already spent a month back at the dealer. So far they have not actually "fixed" a thing other than replace its original battery, ...
