Thanks! I recommend setting up a follow-up appointment. Once you do, please private message me your VIN, updated mileage, best daytime phone number, and full name.

Now I need a new transmission mount I would assume from taking the transmission in/out so many times. Luckily it has all been covered under extended warranty besides the $100 deductible I will need for the tranny mount. It has 81000 and warranty up to 100000. I would like to get this resolved before they warranty goes. Hopefully these electrical problems will get worked out as well...
Thank you for following back up with me. I want to look into this further. When was your most recent dealer visit?

Have you been to your dealer for a diagnosis, Tshort1686? Please let me know, along with your mileage, and I'll look into this further.

These are the same symptoms I experienced this past Monday. I called my insurance company and had it towed to a local Ford dealer that morning. I received a call about 5pm telling me my car was ready to go. I asked what the cost is and they said it was covered and that they replaced the TCM and a couple other things that were covered. I was ecstatic. My 2012 Ford Focus has been running like a champ since.

After traveling for a couple hours, I pulled over and shut it off thinking everything was fine I went to start it and it didn't do anything. No lights, key fob wouldn't lock the doors, nothing. The next morning, it started up just fine. 5 days later, I go to start the car and it has the same problem. I notice a weird noise coming from near the glove box and a similar noise coming from the dome light. While the key was in the on position in the ignition, at one point the dash lit up like it was going to start up. I tried to start it but it didn't and the dash lights shut off. What is wrong? I will let you guys know if it starts tomorrow. If it does, I may take it to the dealer.

Hi gaubu117,

I recommend reaching out to my counterparts at Ford Vietnam Limited. Their number is +84 (0) 4 933 1284.

Best of luck to you moving forward.
