In the shop...OBD II codes, p2610 and p068a

Well the Focus would not start this morning. Had to jump it with the wife's Murano. Gave me OBD II codes p2610 and p068a. The clock also never changed from 6:58 am....


Any one had this happen?

P068A - Indicates the non volatile random access memory (NVRAM) write did not complete successfully after the ignition key was turned off, prior to PCM shutdown. This DTC sets when the PCM power relay is de-energized too early.

P2610 - Indicates an error in the internal PCM engine off timer processor. The test fails when the difference between the engine off time and the central processing unit (CPU) time exceeds a calibrated limit for a calibrated amount of time.

For these DTCs, the technical details probably aren't important because there is a TSB that covers these issues:

TSB 11-10-2
Publication Date: October 2, 2011

Some 2012 Focus vehicles built on or before 8/12/2011 may exhibit the following engine drivability and/or automatic transmission concerns; RPM flare on deceleration coming to a stop, rough idle on deceleration coming to a stop, intermittent engine idle fluctuations at a stop, intermittent vehicle speed control inoperative, intermittent harsh engagement/shift, engine no-start with engine coolant temperature (ECT) open circuit faults and intermittent no-crank/no-start condition after performing normal Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) pinpoint test (PPT) diagnostic procedures. The vehicle may also exhibit diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) U0422, P00D2, P068A, P0850, P2610, P2832, P286F or P2877. The vehicle may also exhibit intermittent false initialization to 21 °C (70 °F) on the instrument cluster's ambient temperature display upon engine start up.


The fix is a simple reprogramming of the PCM and TCM.

So, this is a new TSB that just came out. That's a lot of issues all packed into one TSB.

From the TSB:

This article supersedes TSBs 11-5-11, 11-7-22 and 11-9-5 to consolidate previously released articles...

Appeared so. All the electronics worked inside the car. Heard a click when I tried to start it. Kept clicking rapidly until I hooked up the jumper cables the the Murano then stopped . Had to let it charge for a few minutes until it did start.

Not a fun morning...

Question: How up-to-date do dealers stay with TSBs? Do they just search for them when someone has a problem, or do they read them as they come out? I went to the dealer saying that I had a harsh shifting issue, but I wonder if this would fix it or not. Would my dealer see this and seek me out? Or wait until I come in again…?
