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 charger.

2. Connect IDS (integrated diagnostic system) and ensure that the USB connection is secure. Any interruption during the reprogramming event will result in being forced to repeat the procedure.

3. Is the vehicle currently exhibiting an inoperative IPC?

   a. Yes: Restore IPC to normal operation by removing the fuse number 69 from the body control module for one minute and then reinstall the fuse.

    b. No: Proceed to Step 4.

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