The dealer has updated the control unit, but that didn't fix it. They say that Ford has acknowledged a problem with some of these vehicles, but don't have a fix for it at this time. Thus, there is nothing they can do. I'm beginning to consider the lemon law.
Hi Tiburon,

My name is Noemi and I am working alongside Natasha on the FocusFanatics forum. I've reviewed your case. Please PM me with the current mileage and brief history since your last dealer visit, so I can update your case to the regional Customer Service Manager.

Noemi
