I posted this on the other thread, but thought it might be more appropriate somewhere over here:

There's a service tip on the ford tech website:

Quote:
6361 - 2012-2013 Focus - Various Drivability, Transmission Shift/Engagement Concerns and/or DTC’s – Service Tip
Some 2012-2013 Focus vehicles may exhibit engine start concerns no crank, no start, hard start, intermittent start, noise during start and/or various automatic transmission concerns in Drive or Reverse when shifting from Park including no engagement, delayed or intermittent engagement. With or without a powertrain diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) P06B8, P0805, P0809, P0850, P087A, P087E, P0884, P283A, P2831, P2832, P2835, P2836, P2837 May also set DTC P0700 without any accompanying fault codes. Prior to following normal diagnostics, first check G-104 for good body to ground contact. If ground eyelet can be rotated by hand, torque fastener to 12 Nm and verify eyelet cannot be rotated. If no issues are found, follow normal diagnostics.
I passed this one up yesterday until I realized that I have the P0850_52 DTC... hopefully this will fix my transmission issues? Though, I'm sure my clutch is already toast.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...=278111&page=2

EDIT: Anyone know where ground G-104 is?

There's a very similar TSB for the Fiesta. On that car, the ground connection is under the hood. Maybe ours is, too.

And since Ford has been less than helpful in even admitting there are problems with this transmission, here is a diagram:

Hi amplifier28,

Give your dealership a call; they'll be able to see if there are any outstanding service actions for your vehicle.

Here's the TSB on Ford's site. Just found this on my car this week, came here to the forum, and found the thread. I'm really liking the Focus Fanatics forum.

Not TSBs, per se, but noteworthy.

6532 - 2012-2013 Focus - Vibration in Reverse After Transmission Removal and Installation - Service Tip
Some 2012-2013 Focus vehicles equipped with a DPS6 transmission may exhibit a vibration in reverse after a transmission removal and installation. Prior to following normal diagnostics, first ensure the two roll restrictor bolts are correctly installed. The roll restrictor to engine bolt is longer than the roll restrictor to frame bolt which could touch the steering rack and ground out. If no issues are found, follow normal diagnostics.

6531 - 2011-2014 Fiesta / 2012-2014 Focus Fluid Leak Between the Engine and Transmission.
Some 2011-2014 Fiesta and 2012-2014 Focus vehicles equipped with a DPS6 transmission may experience a fluid leak between the engine and transmission. Be aware that the engine oil and DPS6 transmission fluid are similar in color and texture. A transmission fluid leak at the input shaft seal can cause a buildup of fluid in the bell housing; creating the appearance of a rear main seal leak. The rear main seal should only be replaced after a rear main seal failure is confirmed through appropriate diagnostics outlined in the online Workshop Manual (WSM) Section 303-00 / Diagnosis and Testing.

6531 is disturbing, there is a whole thread here of people excitedly awaiting their 2014 focus's, to which 6531 directly refers, for the same problem well known in posts here.
