I have had exactly the same problem with my 2013 Focus Zetec 1.6TDCI. I bought the car in November last year. End December had the notification "Engine Malfunction Service Now" and car just would not start. Went back to it 10 minutes later, all ok. Same thing happened again at beginning of March and again all ok after about 10 minutes. Talked to local main dealer who said they hadn't come across the problem before and would be extremely difficult to find the fault unless it was actually present at the time of diagnosis. Grateful if you would advise if you manage to find out what is causing the problem. Likewise I will post any answers if I find one.
