the switch.
4. Lift and hold the switch until the window is fully closed.
5. Open the window and try to close it automatically.
6. Reset and repeat procedure if the window does not close

Took me a couple tries to get the drivers side to work.
Worked like a charm!!!! Thx for the info!

^^^ That's great info guys. Either you or Chum should post that information in Third Generation Focus Non-Performance Chat, then PM me and I'll sticky it. We'll also add it to the How-To archive. That's a neat trick.

Transmission problems

I am having the same problem with my two week old 2012 Focus. The transmission shudders on acceleration and sometimes "clunks" between 1st and 2nd gear. Worse is I was at a stop sign and went to quickly accelerate and the engine wound up quickly with no power to the wheels. The power then came in over the course of about 3 seconds. With the oncoming traffic clearly a dangerous situation. This is an unsatisfactory situation and I am amazed that Ford is letting these come out of factory like this. Trip to the dealer coming but going to need a definitive solution to this.

Hi gpinnell,

Welcome to the forum! Scheduling an appointment with the dealer is the perfect first step. Please PM me your info as well (VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state) and I'll help.

I look forward to hearing from you.

~Natasha

Ford Focus 2012 transmission problem

Thanks for your help. This is going to be a short workup. As busy as my schedule is I have talked with the dealer who sold me the car (who has been great) and told them if this can't be resolved quickly to expect the car back. To his credit he said we will do whatever needs to be done. Don't get me wrong, this car has some damn fine strengths (and some weakness) but I need reliable transportation which is not going to get me killed. Regards, Greg

A quick question on keyless entry

BTY, is there a way to get the remote entry to arm the alarm system without honking the horn? I looked in the manual and I can't find the answer. I know how to do it on a Dodge but not this one! Thanks!

Issues with Ford Focus 2012

I have the same problem with my 2012. This is now the 3rd time I have been to the dealer to have the issue looked at.. My Focus now has 7000 miles on the clock and they still say it needs to break in. I feel I am being fobbed off by Ford and they have no answers!

Hey Greg,

whynotthinkwhynot sent me your information, so I will be sending you a PM shortly. As for the remote entry, just press the lock button once and it will set the alarm & flash the lights without sounding the horn. If you press it twice, the horn chirps as confirmation that all doors are locked. It's on page 166 of the Owner's Guide.

Hi awilkesy,

I know it is frustrating to have concerns on a new vehicle. Please private message me the details (VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state) so I can review your situation.

Page 275 of the owners manual says that the car has grade assist My dealer says it does not who is right. I know that on my car it does not work. The grade assist lamp does light during a lamp test
