Car is at the dealer/ no power

Well Friday I went out to my car to go to the store and it would not start. Thought at first dead battery since the car is coming up on two years old come April. So i tried to jump start it, nothing. At this point in time i started to notice that my windows would not roll down and that the radio didn't turn on either. So I have Ford's road side tow it to the dealer. They started reworking on it today and tell me it's a wiring issue the PCM can't connect to the bcm and they are losing power somewhere. They did say the battery was fine so that was not the issue.

Here it is on the flatbed


So my car will sit there at least till Monday.

Side note here's my rental a 2013 mustang

Wow, repair could be lengthy. Or quick if they figure it out easily. Might be driving that nice Mustang for a while. Nice car. I hope everything works out. Let us know what the outcome is when its done.

Hey Fumey,

I just wanted to touch base and see how things went at the dealership. Let us know if you've received an update or if your Focus is back at home.
