Focus fumble

Some 2012-2013 Ford Focus vehicles built on or before 2-6-2013 may exhibit an inoperative IPC (instrument panel cluster) on vehicle start-up.

1. Connect the battery to a battery charger.

2. Connect IDS and ensure that the USB connection is secure.

3. Is the vehicle currently exhibiting an inoperative IPC? If yes, restore the IPC to normal operation by removing fuse number 69 from the body control module for one minute and then reinstall the fuse.

4. Reprogram the IPC to the latest calibration using IDS release 85.02 or higher. Calibration files may also be obtained at
