No, but it may be interesting to have a look at the fault codes stored in the ECU....

does your car have an alarm? or only the normal smartlock? may be nothing to do with it, but i have heard a number of stories about any alarm over the weekend that would make you wonder...other than that, get it back to ford and get them to retrieve the fault codes as simon suggested.
