Red face Click-Click-Whir after opening the doors


Take this for what it's worth, but our 2013 Focus SE 5dr Auto was making the exact same sound as everyone else has been talking about, and I took the car up to the dealer today. After I got them to believe me (we had to leave the car sit for a while before it would make the noise), they checked with Ford and got this response from the OASIS System (I guess that's the Tech Service system???).

This is a direct quote...

2013 Focus vehicles equipped with the Powershift DPS6 transmission may experience a clicking noise from the transmission after the doors are unlocked, opened and prior to the engine starting for up to 3 minutes. The noise is the transmission shift motors waking up and preparing for startup. Attempts to eliminate the noise should not be made.

I'm keeping a copy of the message with the repair bill, just in case something decides to break down the road, but essentially, Ford is saying it's normal, live with it.

Hope this helps, and I apologize if this information has already been posted.
