I wonder if anyone else with a new ford focus is getting this problem.

When I turn my car off for about 20 minutes without leaving the interior and then turn it back on, I almost always get an engine malfunction error message and the car doesn't start. If I try to turn the car on right away it always starts right back up.

I took it to ford and this error isn't leaving a message in the system. Further, no technician I have spoken with has ever heard anything even similar happening.

Has anyone else experiencied something similar?

Have something to contribute?
