Help with code P090C

Hello all! First post on this Forum and looking for some insight! My wife's car started shifting erratically about two weeks ago, but just for one trip and then went away. Well, this morning on her way to work it came back again. On the way home now she says it is driving fine but we were able to get the code read (at local parts store) and he could not tell us what it was. I tried looking it up to no avail as well. Code came up as P090C. The car feels like it goes into neutral for a second before it bangs into the next gear. Also felt like reverse was slipping.

Any clue? Thanks in advance!

Oh, btw... Conveniently about 1k miles out of the 60k mile warranty

See the Dealer & hope for some assistance since you're close to the official mileage.

Here's a thread with contact info. for Ford reps. who help out folks here:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=271380

I'll move this to a section for your model where all the issues from '12 to current are archived. There's quite a bit of info. on possible trans. problems there.

P090C - Clutch B Actuator Control Circuit Low

Basically will involve testing the circuits between the TCM and the clutch actuator. You can also swap the 2 actuators and see if the fault now moves to the other position which would indicate a bad actuator. (the code for clutch A actuator control circuit low is P0902).

Hey, did your dealer ever fix this for you? I'm having a similar issue with one of the actuators, and it's bringing up the P0902 code. Problem is that it goes away after a day and it's always working fine once i'm in for service.
