Hi I have a 2010 2wd 2.0 titanium, The traction control light flashes and engine malfunction light comes on pings and goes into get you home mode, Once you stop the engine and restartitresets itself and then its ok until it does it again, there is no pattern to when this happens high speed, low speed, corners or straight road, I have had it into dealer - first time they said it was low fuel pressure so put new filter on tested it said it was ok and charged me £98 for the pleasure,I got it back and the following day it did it again, then 5 days later then two days later. Took it back to dealer and they tested it again and said they had sorted it, two days later happened again. Has anybody out there had the same problem or might know what the problem is ?, Cheers, nipper.1.

I've just had ABS and traction control lights coming on together plus then a slight stutter/misfire.
Stuck it on my mates scanner and it said O/S/F wheel sensor (£8.99 eBay) cured!!
If the car thinks it has wheel spin or loss of traction it kills engine power - hence the misfire!
Hope that is of some help.

I have a 2014 kuga with the symptoms described. One additional symptom mine has is it also does it under acceleration. Would your problem also occur under acceleration? Thanks appreciate your help.

Hi, did you manage to solve the problem in the end? I'm having the exact same problem with my Kuga 2010. Thanks

Hi, did you find the fault with your Kuga? I'm having the same problem unfortunately!

One thing to rule out before you go spending any money, is to check your alternator... its a well known problem on the mk1 that as the alternator starts to fail, errors like you've mentioned above start to get thrown up...

Thanks for replying! Would that show up on a diagnostic test? My friend did run a test on it and it came back with 6 codes, one of them being that it lost connection with the instrumental cluster panel which steered me towards a damaged cluster? Also my immobilizer light was flashing like crazy even whilst driving but my brother removed the battery and that seems to have stopped now? Does this still sound like an alternator issue?

Probably the instrument cluster, but I would also get the alternator checked.

that changes things slightly! I'd start with the instrument cluster on that one, dry solder joints is a common problem I see time and again on the focus ST forums... EXAMPLE
Lots places specialise in repairing these, have a search and send your dash off.. it will mean your car is off the road for a day or two...Thinking about it, another option would be to buy a second hand dash (ebay? - check its the same engine type / size etc as your own car) and take this to a mileage correction specialist near where you are, they can then code the replacement dash to your keys / immobiliser (costs around £80 I believe) they'll also reprogram the mileage to what your original dash is.
Once repaired, work your way through the other error codes...

If I were you, the above is the direction I'd take!
