  1. Hey Lesley, ur problem sounds very similar to mine. I am to like you very wary of driving it. Thinking of taking it to another ford for a second opinion. my light isn't on when u start the car, just while driving on and off. I had a software update back in march.
  2. Hey adam, I have the same thing with my Focus after having the alternator replaced! But now it's not charging the battery at all! Did u solve the problem in the end?? Thanks keshia
  3. I have a focus that battery keeps draining. Ford are saying pcm fault! This is my old post on here! i have a focus that is causing me no end of trouble. First didn't idle right and would cut out now and again. The intermittent power steering on cold or dam/wet days Then all the gauges would fly up and down no power steering, turn it off and started all fine again. Then cut out all together rac called out restarted it. Had a new battery & alternator. That worked for a week, but engine light was on. monday loss of power steering while driving, all haywire with the gauges again. Power steering wouldn't come back on. Left it an hour all was fine. Next day went to start it all dash lights flashing, multiple malfunctions and it's died. Garage are saying it's down to the pcm! Any advice??
  4. Yes it was a ford garage. The alternator is not charging the battery now and it keeps dying. Friend at ford, said they are not 100% sure changing the pcm will fix the problem. It's a lot of money for it not to work. Thinking of taking it to a auto electrican. It's arking out somoewhere too! Haven't even had the car a year either
  5. Fully charged the battery Friday. It died again Monday. Had friend check it, the alternator is not charging the battery now!

  7. I'm banging my head up a brick wall with my mk3 2011 petrol Focus. Firstly was cutting out and power steering failing with no warning lights! Always worst in damp or cold weather. New battery & alternator. Drove it away ignition light came on. Took it back, they checked it over again, wiring. Had it back battery keeps dying, power steering still playing up! Only with the weather may I add. Friend at ford is saying pcm needs replacing, or get rid. Charged the battery for me and it died again after 3 days. Keep getting shocked by the car also! 😂 Any help or advice would be great!
