I have Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost 2012. I have experienced an intermittent problem where I get a loss of power (turbo not working)and car goes into "limp" mode. No warning light appears and the car

thats sounds like a possible boost control solenoid failure.when the boost solenoid fails it wont activate a warning light and because of the lack of boost the engine computer fail safe feature will put it in limp mode in order to keep the driver from harming the engine

I have ford focus xr5 turbo lv 2008 after service due the engine light comes up on the dashboard and some time flashing and when i press the accelator in drive doesn't go fast and don't get pick up ...? ?

Sounds like you have a serious engine malfunction and your ECU is putting vehicle in safe mode which is limp mode, no performance. You have to pull codes to see what the issue is, or if mechanical, look for loose hoses which is most likely the culprit which is sending signal to your ECU tripping limp mode.

2005 focus 1.6 limp mode problem and P2100 code

Try clearing the code from the computer. If it returns again, the second hand one could be bad also! Some codes are what they call a hard code, that stays in the computer memory, and will think that the problem wasn't repaired (even though the part was replaced). Till the code is cleared from the memory, the vehicle will return to a limp mode untill the problem is resolved!!

Got a ford focus on a 07 bringing up 2 fault codes p0607 and p2110 i know what the codes but are unsure about the best way to proceed with this problem hope you can help thanks Andy

Hello, There is a PCM relay in the Powerbox. It may be worth your time to change it and see what happens. The PCM may be going out, but a bad Relay to it could have affected the programming inside. This would require at trip to the Dealer or a Repair shop having the PCM programming data if the new Relay does not help.

I looked up the NHTSA website for your car and there was no mention of problems with the PCM. If your engine goes into a "Limp Home" mode, you may have a bad temperature sensor triggering the event. However, the "Limp Home" mode should not be recorded as a Module error. It is part of the programming to have a "Limp Mode".

Try the Relay and if it does not fix the problem, then you need the PCM programming checked.
