Engine Service Now & Limp Mode

Recommended Posts

Hi, not sure if anyone can help me. I’ve had my 2017 Ford Focus ST Line for just over a year and over the last few months at random times I get an indication on the dash saying ‘Engine service Now’ and the car instantly goes into Limp Mode. When I turn the engine off and back on it goes back to normal again. This has happened around 5 or 6 times over the last 6 months at any random time. I have had the car plugged into a diagnostic however there are no errors and the engine is ‘sound’ according to the mechanic? Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Thanks in advance.

There will be a fault code. It will be a Ford specific one that needs Forscan (or equivalent) to read it rather than generic code readers.

You might need to take a laptop with you and plug it in when the fault happens, it may also reset when you switch the engine off.

I had 2 times that warning but at the second time, the engine was making a weird noise and a lot of vibration.

Since it's still in waranty (7 years), i've send it to the  workshop

 

in the Fordpass app..

Did you find the problem with this I'm having the same issue?
