PratoN Saw a new TSB:

Reference Number(s): 14-0215, Date of Issue: November 18, 2014
FORD: 2012-2014 Focus

Some 2012-2014 Focus vehicles equipped with a 2.0L Gas Direct Injection (GDI) engine may exhibit a concern of a malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illuminated, engine runs rough, crank no-start, loss of power, or loss of engine RPM, with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P0122, P0222, P0320, P0322, P0327, P0332, P0344, P0369, P06A7, P060D, P061C, P1336, P1674, P2111, P2112, P2127 and/or P2135.
Applies to vehicles built on or before 2/4/2014 with an automatic transmission or built on or before 2/19/2014 with a manual transmission.

It's basically post #151 of this thread:

It calls for repairing the circuit with additional wire if there's already chafing and then putting a protective shielding on the wire in that area. It also has the technician clean off the G103 connection and re-torque it in case the vehicle has a loose ground. In the case of certain DTCs (P0320, P0322, P061C, and/or P1674), it calls to replace the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.

Where did you learn about this Elwood?

The customer will see Steering Assist Fault Service required message, the steering wheel icon, and a yellow dot in the instrument cluster, and hear the soft warning chime. Steering assist will remain for that key cycle. For the next key cycle at vehicle startup, the customer will see Steering Loss Stop Safely message, the steering wheel icon, and a red dot in the instrument cluster, and hear the hard warning chime. Steering assist will be removed for that key cycle and all future key cycles.

Reprogram the power steering control module (PSCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 72.04 and higher or 73.01 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2011.5 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at

My 2012 Focus lost power steering today and I'm looking at a $2540 for parts that are on back order. Can you tell me more about this? The dealership might try this if it comes from a solid source.

Dealer keeps telling me its all peaches and cream that nothing is wrong. what the hell do i do then?

Not to mention the service guy but writing up my broken fog light housing and just duct taping it back in...

Yeah I feel you. And that is what make it's difficult to pin point. A few I found I was sure of on location, the last and most annoying one was the hardest to find. Sounds like from behind the stereo, in the glove box or under the dash. Can't pin point it. My brother and I have up and settled for behind the stereo.

Though the one I have coming from the door is indeed from the door. Only present when music is playing and prominent bass notes hit. Disappears without music or quiet music. But then again could be anywhere haha
