Reset TCM 2014 Ford Focus Transmission

If your 2014 Ford Focus is shifting hard or seems to have an erratic transmission, these steps may fix the issue. We ran into this after replacing the TCM in my mother's Focus.

1. Run the car and set trans to neutral.

2. Turn off and wait 15 seconds.

3. Shift to Park.

4. Turn the ignition on (Not running), wait 15 seconds

5. Turn to off, then ignition on (not running)

6. Shift to neutral (you may have to press the brake to do so)

If successful you should see "Transmission Ready" on your dash.

I have done the above method successfully on my mother’s car. Lasted about 9 months or so (we can’t remember when it was done).

Possible alternate method:

Turn off car

Turn ignition to ON (do not start)

Press gas pedal to floor and hold for 10 seconds

Turn off car

Release gas pedal

Wait 2 minutes

Start car and drive, slowly accelerating through each gear and the slow down to cycle back through gears.

I have done the above on my mother’s car when the transmission started acting up again. Don’t know how long this will last.
