  1. Remove the App, and reinstall it. Try FordPass Pro. Send message to their support. Failures within the app are sadly all too common.
  2. No, I'm quite sure it will fix by itself.
  3. If other conditions are met, the reason for your start/stop system not working is probably due to low voltage in your battery. Have your battery recharged with a charger that provides AGM battery mode for charging, with my charger it-s abutton that states "14.7V". Start-stop system not working properly in the new Focus Is a common problem, Google it. Has to do with the BCM system.
  4. Hi, please do not post a separate thread on the same subject you started earlier, keep the discussion there. Thank you.
  5. I've got an 2018 MY Focus, and the screen is not hot at all, i'd take it to service.
  6. Focus seems to have a real issue with it's BMS functions in Mk4 Focus. It affects the Nordic countries most IMO, since during the last winter, ppl (including me) were experoiencing issues with fuel aux heaters not working (with me even in mid-august) on a cold morning, and battery SOC dropping even to 40-55% even if the car is run regularly. Ford is not always replacing the BMS sensor/module at the moment, since it would only help for a while, maybe from days to months. They're searching and waiting for a full fix. Also, one of the symptoms is S/S not working due to low battery SOC and system not charging the battery properly. One option would be to detach the BMS sensor off from battery negative terminal connection.
  7. Go and have them fixed by warranty, without further question. I've heard of (and experienced myself) DRL flickering in Mk4 Focus. Both left and right. LED control units in my Mk4 bacame faulty, and were replaced under warranty.

  9. Enable all, unless you wear a tinfoil hat.
  10. In the meanwhile, CyanLabs will gladly help you update your Sync and navmaps into fresh version. It is simple, but happens at your own responsibility. My update took 52 minutes, if remember correctly. With F9 Europe satnav and voice commands.
  11. Close the mirrors using the drivers side controls, get out and lock the car, then unlock it, get back in and open them manually, then they will no longer operate automatically.
  12. Thank you for clearing that out ... my language skills hit the barrier. What I'm trying to express that if you do a permanent solution to disable S/S, your car does not match the pollution limits it was sold with in the beginning, which technically might make it ... what's the wording ...even technically illegal to drive in some metropolitan areas. The risk for getting caught is probably non-existent, but the fact is, that the car is not anymore as clean-running as it was when sold to you. S/S is also used to reduce pollution in city areas, not just mpg. It's a part of the ever continuing pollution reduction game. Disabling S/S from the switch is OK, of course, but the "permanent" solution might lit the check engine light up.
  13. It might have an OBD indicator for that? In here, your OBD's gotta have a green screen, if you want your MOT test to pass.
  14. My 2018 MY Focus has the paddles, it was then a part of my car configuration with A8 gearbox, if I remember correctly. I've read that they've been since dropped, with the outside lock/unlock sensors in the back doors handles to save £££.
  15. Disabling S/S permanently would technically mean your car is not up to pollution specs anymore, since you are preventing pollution reducing systems from working. IDK if that would be a problem anywhere, but I think the MOT tests might have something to say about it. OTOH I disable S/S every single time I start my car, luckily it's just a simple button press in the center console.
