Doesn't bother me yet but we will see as I've only had the car a couple of days. Transmission seems to operate fine though and I am happy with its operation thus far...........
So this is normal and is an issue why? I still don't understand the point of the thread. It was designed to do certain things at certain times, and is working as designed.

Did you know that the fuel injection pump will come on for up to 2 minutes before you start the car. Also the ABS pump will cycle for up to a minute before you start the car. Ford has been doing this for years.

The original point of the thread was people asking, "hey, what is that". Somewhere long the line the thread degenerated into a couple of people (or maybe just one person) making something out of nothing to further some personal agenda only he/she knows.

Long story short - it probably serves no purpose at this point.

Four days and like it so far. But from what I've read about the quality issues here and other online forums I'm a bit skeptical. Just went to heck and back with the Chrysler customer reps from my 2012 POS Chrysler 200. I only hope IF I do have any issues the Ford guys will at least show a bit more empathy than the Mopar people did!

That doesn't apply to the current Focus.

I took mine to the dealer and they also said they could do nothing until there is a recall and that the engineers are working on a fix. This cannot be "normal" to repeat "transmission getting ready" for 21 to 25 times with the ignition "OFF". Why can't they do it once? After all the first time only takes maybe 10 seconds. There is a video on youtube I copied along with several comments saying they were considering a Focus until they heard of this "NORMAL" operation. Ford you are losing customers if you don't come up with something to correct a perceived (or real) problem with your car. Heres the video.

ford focus click click whir video

CLICK CLICK WHIR Ford Focus 2013 --- NOT NORMAL Why would any engineer or programmer tell a mechanical device to repeat a transmission cycle for exactly the same number of times with the ignition OFF. 21 times. Ford Focus owners need a definite answer - NOT - ITS NORMAL!!!! I have one and it does this exact same thing over and over and over. Check out the video.

What you have is NOT NORMAL -
I have a 2013 Focus and this is what mine does:

THAT is NORMAL.

Avail yourself of the assistance provided by Crystal, the online Ford Rep. She will try to escalate your issue and feel free to use my post link as added authority as to how it is supposed to act, delete the extraneous filler, I tend to run on past the info.

But does the fuel pump come on without turning the ignition to the "on" position. No it does not. These noises from my Ford Focus occur when you open and close the door with no ignition key inserted. It does it 21 times for 3 minutes. Ford says "Do not attempt to repair." Service manager said they are working on the problem?? Why don't they tell that to the public who bought the car without having to drive to the dealer to find out whats wrong?
