I got a P0972 - Shift Solenoid A Control Circuit Range/Performance error code.
Couldn't find any information on focus fanatics about P0972.
I guess I need to replace Solenoid A but I want to be sure since this code never showed up on the whole forum!
Symptoms: Flashing O/D, harsh neutral to first gear (D) or reverse
EDIT: wife 2007 MK1.5 70K miles 4spd auto 2.0L

|ctoddfly||Sorry, but I don't see the answer here. If I remove the Solenoid A, is there a way to test it, perhaps with a multi meter?|

Best to start a new thread - this is MAINLY for the solenoid packs in the Gen 1 and Gen II Focus ATX.
The Gen III has a DCT (Dual clutch transmission) - basically an electronically shifted manual transmission.
Plenty of info on it in the Gen III forum and the warranty on (parts of) it has been extended, so your dealer service department should be working with you to make it right.
BTW - it typicallly isn't clutch re-setting or adjusting, it is usually clutch pack replacement or TCM (transmission control module) replacement.

|Lee Nedirof||I have a 2014 Ford. Focus Hatchback. I have trouble with the Transmission Problems and was told that the car has a automatic and a standard transmission? This car is not a good car or even a safe car to drive. I never know when it's going to decide not to change gears while driving it, it shudders and hesitates when I take off from a sitting positions. The only thing the dealer service department can tell me is the clutch needs resetting or adjusting when I feel the car not shifting.|

Someone has obviously never checked the success rate of even the best trans shops around, they themselves have maybe only a 50% success rate and why they commonly replace the entire trans now, they cannot find out what is wrong with them and very common.

Go ahead & throw a set of "coil pigtails" on that duratec, not likely to solve anything unless mice chewed them off but what do we know?
Oops - gave you an answer you didn't want....

I haven't created my own thread on it because half the people couldn't work under a good shade tree, another quarter are professional focus genius wannabes that all say... read through the posts, and the other quarter say something they heard once from a guy they know about a story their best friends uncle told them about a ford escort that they worked on once.
But, at least the thread on transmission fluid changes was informative. Thanks!
