2012 Ford Focus Transmission Grinding
You may have noticed I don’t have a red Focus anymore. The dealer bought back the red one because there were so many issues, but talked me into buying another. I just got the new one back from the dealership today. I brought it in because the transmission makes a loud CRUNCH noise every time it shifts into second. The dealer handed me a letter from headquarters stating the noise is normal operation and “do not attempt to repair”. The car was already reprogrammed with the newest “customer satisfaction” software update 3 months ago. The grinding noise your hear just before I pass the camera is the transmission. My car is only 7 months old with 16000 miles.
This shows how the to program ignition keys using the Ford IDS software and VCM. using a approved j 2534 device and Ford Module Programming software is almost the same. Using these interface devices you must have a active ids or fmp subscription from Ford.
