Has anybody had problems with the interior lights having a mind of their own??
Sometimes they come on for me and other times not. I do get the exterior flash and lights on the corners but not the overheads.
Hey Binzer,

Are you still experiencing this concern? Shoot me a PM with your full name, best daytime phone number, VIN, mileage and preferred servicing dealership; I'll look into available options.

On both points, I have same concerns - i have not yet been able to figure out HOW the interior dome lights are triggered - its like a secret handshake or something.
I recommend sending a PM to my Canadian counterpart here at FordServiceCA.

Update:
It's been a few months since we've had the clutches replaced- It has been very enjoyable. The car has been behaving better than when we drove it off the lot. The big test will be when the ambient temperature goes above 20 degrees Celsius. That is when it use to really act up.

Replace the entire fuel tank? Hope you are under warranty. Had other cars that would sometimes throw a code if the gas cap was left off or one of the lines/checlvalves developed a crack.

fwiw Motorweek just tested a VW and used a focus for comparison. They actually measured the paint thickness and found the Ford to be thinner than the VW

Amen. I've come to terms that I have to live with it or repaint it later.
The AVS hood edge deflector I got not only looks really good but is very functional and seems to deflect everything away from the hood very well now. I wish I had got it from day 1.

I noticed some other paint damage on passenger door under the side view mirror. It looks like overspray from the factory, not chips actually, because it looks like little bubbles of paint with a crater in the middle. I wonder if it's covered under warranty...

Not a TSB, per se - but at least I should finally be able to fix this with Focccus. The only problem I ever had listed out of these is the Sirius info not updating after changing stations.

2013-2014 C-MAX, Focus and Fiesta - Several Radio Issues
Some 2013-2014 C-MAX, Focus and Fiesta vehicles may exhibit one or more of the following concerns: AM/FM/Sirius radio display does not update when changing stations using presets or frequency selector, during CD operation the track info is blank and there is no information available, FM mode Autostore does not store stations in numerical order, and/or following a vehicle start-up event the radio cannot be heard until the radio on/off is cycled, volume level is adjusted or the radio station frequency is changed. To correct these conditions reprogram the Audio Control Module (ACM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 90.04 and higher. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com. For warranty claiming use causal part 19C107, and use applicable 12651D labor operations in SLTS manual Section 10 for the vehicle.
