This past week my 2016 has been acting up. Different things aren't working. The doors can't lock, no window control, no audio, no backup camera, no key less entry features (locking, unlocking, or the keypad). I opened FORScan and read the codes, the listed issues do show up in codes.
Was there a recall for 2016 models for these issues that anyone knows of? Has anyone else had these issues and were you able to fix them?
I am planning taking it in this weekend to get it looked at. Any information is greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance. FocusST Codes.PNG

sounds like your cars battery needs replaced, have you checked the sitting voltage of the batter,or cranking amps?

That seems to be the fix for everything electrical issue related.

I also think it may be the battery. Are you still running the one from factory ?

Is that the voltage when cranking ?

Before you take it in anywhere and spend money, have your local autoparts or battery shop test the battery. These cars do very strange things when he battery is dying. Would be an easy and cheap fix if that is the case and you won't have to spend any money with a shop diagnosing it.

Edit: But I guess that battery may be covered under warranty if that's what you meant by take it in??

I just had something like this happen. No window control, mirror control, no interior lights. The battery had gone dead overnight. I jumped it and got it running, but these things didn’t reset until the car was restarted after the battery was charged back up

Thanks everyone for the replies. I'll go get the battery checked and charged up before I take it in to see if there is something else wrong.

After testing different things I think I may have figured it out. Things would go wrong sometimes on hard acceleration and hard decceleration. So I figured a connector was loose. I ended up taking apart the fuse box right in front of the battery (only houses the big fuses no relays). one of the nuts was loose and allowed the terminal to disconnect from the conducting plate. I have tightened down this nut and will see in a few weeks to make sure this totally fixed the problem.

I took my '16 in for the second (free) oil change and it had a bad battery and was replaced under warranty. I hadn't noticed anything odd, except I did notice that it was cranking just a little slower on startup.
