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.

ACTION:
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 www.motorcraft.com.

NOTE: DIFFERENT MODULES MAY GENERATE DTC'S DURING REPROGRAMMING OF THE PSCM. FOLLOW IDS INSTRUCTIONS TO CLEAR DTC'S FROM ALL MODULES.
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.

SEFocus2012 I'm still under warranty and have not once had any update to firmware our anything besides bcm replaced on my car. Dealer keeps telling me its all peaches and cream that nothing is wrong. what the hell do i do then? I'm getting error codes on the test screen on the dash reading rf traction control something or another... 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

Thanks! I agree with the acoustics. Makes it very difficult to pin point them. They fixed one only to have another appear elsewhere sounding different. I have 4 total at the moment and have a good idea where they are coming from. Still though love the car to death. I just get the feeling that I'm a laughing stock at the dealer for showing up so much :/
