Hi this is my 1st post so i do apologise because if i get anything wrong as i'm new too this forum .

 

I have a 62 reg Ford Focus 1.6 tdci Titanium X that intermittently reports with a message that reads " Park Aid Malfunction Service Required " and i lose all power on the doors ie no central lockinkg no power too windows boot won't open and the only way too lock it is with the key inside the key fob . Then suddenly it will all come back too life and all works ok then with no warning goes off and on again at random intervals . The Car starts ok runs ok however when the message appears i have too ride round till it comes back too life so i can lock it up safe . I have had it too the main dealer i purchased it from and they couldn't find anything wrong with as it's intermittent . So i was wondering if anybody had any insight so i can more ammo if they try and fob me off again .

 

A big thankyou for any help anyone can give me

The dealer should but it on a diagnostics the Ford ids. Any malfunction leaves a trace. But you could try making sure all connection are secure on the fusebocx in passenger footwell. And check fuses to be sure.

It's likely to be a loose connection or the GEM Module being faulty. When the message comes up does everything else still work? Windscreen wipers, Windows ?

When the warning message appears all 4 doors lose all power so can't central lock , can't use windows and mirrors wont fold in or out . also if it's happened before i get in i have too use the emergency key too get in then put the keyfob in the steering column too stop the alarm and start the car . however i can drive 5 mins down the road and it will all come back on and go off again at random intervals .

Do the steps mentioned if still no fix then you might need to just replace the gem.
