Quick Fix: Focus ST Recalls

How To Fix:Focus ST recall due to driveability issues.


Applicable Vehicles :

  • Ford Focus ST 13-14

 

How to tell if you have a problem :


Some 13-14 Focus ST models, both modified and stock, have experienced issues with rough idling, stalling, and overall bizarre engine behavior.  This may or may not result in a diagnostic trouble code which makes these issues difficult to troubleshoot and diagnose.

 

How to Fix Problem:

The cause of these problems was determined to be a defect in the wiring splices used in the main wiring harness.  As a result Ford first issued a TSB (13-09-07) but shortly after they issued a recall in an effort to fix those driveability problems (Safety Recall 14S17).  If your vehicle was one of those impacted by this issue and was not yet repaired, take it to your local dealer to get the recall performed (don't forget to uninstall your Accessport first so they don't flash over it!)
