This just happened to my 2012 focus sl hatch. INSANE. I was in a parking lot. Unlocked, opened the passenger door to put my briefcase on the passenger seat, closed the door, and then BOOOOOOM BOOOOM BOOOM BOOM over and over for about 30 seconds. I tried to grab my phone to record vid but fumbled cause i actually thought my car was about to explode.
Seeing as how I wasnt in the car, it was through finding this thread that I realized it was the subwoofer/radio. I'm so thankful to have found this and talk myself off the ledge of insanity. I was not looking forward to taking it to a dealer and sounding like a lunatic.
WTF? This car is such a pit of despair. Never again.

Looks like this was not fixed by software updates. I have the most recent updates as of March 2016, and suddenly my car did this for the very first time. It has now repeated three times within a day. Seriously freaked everyone out!
I went into this renewed relationship with Ford optimistic in 2011 ('12 model year). Between transmission and Sync issues, it has been the nightmare that I hoped would just get better with time. I hate to say this may push me over the edge to finally dump the car and never look back at a Ford again.

Not sure what to do except turn the car on as fast as possible to stop it.

loud speaker static sounds
i have had the same thing happen with my 2012 titanium. It happens every few months and it lasts for 30 seconds or so. When I push the start button, it stops.
I am trying to record it for the service guys at the dealership...because when I try to describe it, they look at me like I am making it up.

I had my 3rd demonic possession event on this passed June 26th at 15h06. This ''bug'' happens when I unlock the doors with the remote and actually open the door with the handle. Never seen another car doing this, but hey, there is nothing out there like the nem Focus lol !!
I have been told by the dealer that this ''bug'' has been adressed via some obscur TSB and that it should never come back again. It did. Not really surprised.
But then again, I was also told that my DCT was working just fine...but they changed it 3 times, so...
All those problems for 34K$. Thanks Ford

|MG_MK3||This is odd.. I've not had this happen to me, but my car does get funky when I unlock it. The needles on the dash bounce around and sometimes the lights will flash randomly. I just assumed it was haunted lol.|

|Jackson81||Literally just happened to me tonight. Unlocked the door and as soon as it was opened that noise started. It sounded like engine sounds but as soon as you put your ear near a speaker it's audible. Weird experience, glad to know I can leave my dealer alone and it might just be a firmware update.|

|MOIME||I thank you for offering to help but I just sold my Ford Focus officially yesterday. I did bring it in to the Ford dealership and they offered no fix..but they did wash the car though! :-) It's unfortunate it had to come to this! :-(|

I am also an engineer so I can appreciate the complexity of hardware and (especially) firmware.
I've never experienced that particular problem with the MFT system although I could because I don't have the firmware update that addresses that problem. How it supposed to work is this: You go to your dealer, he fixes the problem (it only takes about 15 minutes), washes your car, and gives it back to you and you drive away a satisfied customer.
