|Irish614||Not to hijack a thread but I see its been 2 years roughly since anyone has replied. I have a 2012 focus sel hatchback that keeps saying battery low check handbook when I open my door to get into the car. It goes away once I start and drive. I checked the battery and it is giving out 11.9-12 volts, when I start the car it obviously goes up. Anyone have this issue? I don't have the mft so that's not causing the issue. I do have a 12" subwoofer with 500 watt amp however this happened after I took the subwoofer out.|

I also run on battery when I arrive to work but usually for no more than 10 minutes. Today was about 5 minutes with the radio on a iPod via USB and volume set to 8.
Before = 11.8v
Ran from 12:10 pm to 12:28 pm in ACC mode with blowers at 4 and radio at 6. If it makes any difference it was FM HD.
Ran from 12:28 pm to 12:56 pm with everything off except the radio and it was set at 4. FM HD still
After = 11.4v
So I was on battery for 46 minutes and dropped 0.4v.

|sekazi||What I can do is tomorrow I will get the battery volts of mine. I use my car usually about 50 minutes a day in battery but tomorrow will be about 30 minutes since it is Friday. I will get the battery volts before and after. Then Monday I will do the same except with the car in ACC mode.|

|PratoN||My car did this a few days ago as well. 15 minutes in the car (no HVAC or lights - just MFT and bluetooth on) and I got the low battery message.|

When I get my oil changed from the dealer I bought it from in 4k miles I'll tell them about the issue and see if they can replace the battery. Think the place I went to isn't the best dealership, they act like I'm annoying them when I have concerns about my car, as if they weren't getting paid by ford to perform the work...

|TboneZX3||That seems strange to me. I listen to my stereo for a couple hours at a time fairly frequently and my battery is still strong. Granted, I don't have the Sony system and I don't have the key on with other accessories...|
