GhiaFan If you want to get an idea of how some techs think about fixing your Ford watch this video.

I sure hope this type of tech never gets near one of my vehicles.

I had a feeling that with these new cars and the advance tech built in, that the techs probably dread taking the all the steps involved to reprogram whatever needs to be reprogrammed.
But I was hoping that high tech techs are doing this job because it is interesting to them and not a pain in the ass like it appears to be to the tech in this video.

WhiteTite I noticed if I shift too quickly from Reverse to Drive without coming to a complete stop, my back up sensor notification won't go out either...good luck with the rest of the issues hopefully Ford will make it right.

04SVTF303 The issues with the car not locking/unlocking, MFT, and the panic alarm going off are so random, it's damn near impossible to predict when they're going to act up. I had to delete the service techs phone and reassign mine last night, and it worked just fine, until the drive into work this morning. Then it worked just fine after I got my coffee. The transmission is not acting up according them. It's just "quirky".

I didn't read the whole thread. Have you taken a technician for a ride and duplicated the issue? Sounds like you should be able to do that with the amount of issues you're having. Dealers cannot get reimbursed by FMC if they cannot duplicate and verify the issue.

Yes, apparently to get your car fixed you have to provide reams of evidence: video recordings, accelerometer analyses, and signed affidavits from other Focus owners stating that their car does not have the problems you are complaining about.

Otherwise.... "Can't duplicate. Car is operating normally."

Johnny Sticceno Man. This is quite the chronicle you have going on SVTF. Some one get this man a new damn car.

04SVTF303 Another dealer. Same response. I was told by the customer service manager for this region that there was a new version of MFT released in December. Service tech told me that was BS. Same issues. Same answers. Cannot duplicate. I'm really not surprised at. Annoyed I wasted another 3 hours of my life on this pile of shit, though.

Was turning a corner a couple days ago, traffic was coming so I got on it. The car sat there for 3 seconds before it could figure out what gear to put it in. Then it shifted so low in the power band it crawled for another 3 to 4 seconds, jumped into another gear before downshifting and actually getting out of peoples way. This is normal operation. The grinding and missed shifts are all normal operation.

e30og umm or he cant figure it out or get the authorization from Ford to fix it. I feel like all these DCT issues have maybe a couple possible solutions so either Ford isnt giving the green light or the mechanics are idiots
