Hi,

When driving my Focus today, the check engine light came on and the engine started revving loudly whenever the gear would shift (automatic). I later discovered that I cannot reverse the car at all (pressing the gas while in reverse does nothing).

The fault codes I get when I plug in my OBDII adapter are P087A and P287A, but I can't seem to find anything online to help me troubleshoot these issues.

Has anyone else had this issue and know how to resolve it? I've already had the numerous issues with the notorious transmissions found in Focus's, and I'm somewhat hoping it's related so it will be covered under warranty.

Have you checked out the info, in MkIII Problems section yet?

Sounding like a TCM issue at a guess, but that's all it is (just because shift issues seem to be that most often).

^^^ Mis-typed - the CLUTCH motors are accessible from the outside as two separate units.

Better guess than mine, with a good lookup of the codes!
