I have a build date 07/12 5Spd 64,000 MI and it appears that I have the wrapping already. It feels like there is quite a bit of pinch though not enough to break any wires but its certainly pushing against it with some force.

Do you think it is worth adding more protection?

Nope, you are golden. You already have the plastic flex loom covering. I found that you can tug gently on the harness and relieve some of the pinch you described.

Just want to add a quick note of how things went when 6 months ago I asked my dealer to put on the loom on my 2013 SE hatch. I started rambling about the potential chafing, the TSB, being proactive, etc... The service advisor said that he can only fix problems that exist and not potentially exist. So then he smiled and put down in the notes, "Customer observed chaffing of the wiring harness." The dealer then took the car in and installed the loom.

Might not work work with all dealers, but one approach might be to tell them that you did see some chafing and you're worried about it.

I had checked my harness before and thought it was wrapped with enough cloth friction tape from the factory that I wouldn't need to add the loom any time soon. It looks like I was wrong.

Today on the way to work (in heavy rain) the car started to jerk on the highway and I received an "Engine Malfunction" message with the DTC P061C (P061C:00-A7). The car still ran but the engine was intermittently rough. I drove it the rest of the way to work on mostly rural streets with an occasional limping/low power situation.

Ugh, I wasn't really planning to work on my car for the next 3 weekends because I have friends/visitors from another country that I need to chauffeur to Chicago, Madison, etc. Let's hope whatever fix I do is safe and finished before the 20th.

The wording of the TSB is a bit ambiguous - since I have P061C, I'm assuming I replace the wire and see if the DTC goes away. If not, THEN replace the crankshaft position sensor? It doesn't make sense to me to just replace it if I received the code due to the wiring harness issue. I guess it's possible the wiring harness issue could damage the CKP sensor?

Just ran across this thread and checked mine, sure enough it had not been done and it was rubbing. We loosened off the harness so it wasn't as tight and will pick up some loom for it

Thanks guys for bringing it up again!

Mikey.

Prato-N,

Just need to think on this a little to answer your own question.

Without direct reference to the tsb., consider a code for the CKP which means an issue with that or the wiring to it. With a known possible wiring issue, that more likely needed repair would be the first item to check. If a problem is found there, it should be repaired and it's unlikely that you had TWO failures (wiring and CKP) at once.

No wiring issue found, then you move on to the CKP itself as a possible problem.

PratoN did not say specifically that he had verified that his wiring harness was damaged. I would first ascertain if the harness was compromised from rubbing on the intake manifold with an inspection mirror. If the wiring harness has rubbed through to bare copper, then repair that first and make sure you replace the damaged section with a wire of the exact same gauge and length. Then clear the code and see if the problem is resolved.

If the individual wires still have their insulation intact, then P061C is thrown if the PCM can't determine engine RPM. So if the wiring harness is intact and the code is still thrown, then going by the book, it could be:

- Faulty Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP)
- CKP harness is open or shorted
- CKP circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP)
- CMP harness is open or shorted
- CMP circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Ok, i've gotta bump this thread.

After probably 6 months of my flex loom on and 2 autocrosses, I wanted to check on it. (I removed it, which was a mistake...I don't have any decent electrical tape or zip ties so i'll be getting some tomorrow).

Here is my concern, the main 'problem area' as shown in other's pictures really isn't too tight. The loom will, with effort, go here. However, about 3-4 inches down, there is a second place where the manifold touches. It is incredibly tight here. The loom will not go around this, it will fold up if you try to force it. There is no movement in the wiring here either...almost as it it is attached here??

Can anyone else check this on their car?

I can't really get a picture of this. It's difficult to both light it up and take a picture. But I tried, and noticed a factory flex loom further down...strangely where the wiring isn't touching anything.



What do you guys think?

I checked and my 2015 Focus has the same issue: Sharp edges on the plastic gismo behind the wiring harness, right where your pictures showed it. So Ford has not remediated the issue in 2015 production.

What I did: I pulled the wiring harness alternately to the front and to the right -- that was a bit difficult -- while I filed the sharp edges of the plastic into a smooth & rounded form. I used a 1/2-inch file. I exercised great care to not hit the wiring harness with the file. The job took me about a minute.

Thanks again!
