Just logged into ford owner site to see it listed for my car too. It's barely been a month since I took my RS for the 16B43 pcm recall. Sigh.

No recall for me on the ford site. Mine's a 17 built 10/26. I know there was a PCM/BCM recall previously. There are some threads floating around about that update, it got rid of the shift light and added more pops.

My APR 16 built MY16 has this new one too. Asking my daughter for details.

My 16' is also now showing this. Would really like to know what it is before I do it. I'm quite happy with the pops and burbles at the lower RPM from the last recall and would like that to remain the same.

I'm due for this MY16, details below. Looks to be an emissions issue.

Certain 2016-2017 Model Year Focus rs Vehicles — powertrain
control module reprogramming
OVERVIEW
Under certain conditions, the service engine soon indicator will not illuminate when some emissions
monitors detect that a system fault is present. Dealers are to reprogram the Powertrain Control Module
(PCM) using Integrated Diagnostic Software (IDS) release 103.05 or higher.

I was hoping we got the up shift indicator back in normal mode. LOL.

I haven't gone in for any of the updates because I thought some of you that went in for the previous updates said that it went unsuccessfully. Has that changed?

I waited until January to get the recalls done and had no issues. Took them 10 minutes to flash the updates, literally.

A better bit of programming would be to just not allow the throttle to open past the most efficient rpm and just force the driver to shift instead of turning on a light.

If your car is running fine and you like your current set up, I wouldn't bother. My dealer mucked mine up and made false accusations. Once bitten twice shy.

Until I get a MIL or CEL, I'll just file the notice.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I try to keep my dealer visits to a minimum.

I have read that there are states [CA, MA, maybe more] that will not let you renew registration if there are outstanding recalls. Has anyone ever had issues?
