Hey everyone!!
I’m hoping this is the place to ask this question.

I’ve got a Ford Focus. 2012.1.0 eco boost zetec turbo.

I have had an “engine malfunction, service now” messagepop up. With a little orange [!]
But then When this occurs, my auto start stop (A) button on the centre console.. lights up “ off” and I can’t turn it back on again.

when I restart my car after a period of being off.. it’s all back to normal.
Got oomph in the engine. And then shortly down the road. The engine message comes back up. The (A) buttons lights up off, and I feel my car lagging a bit?

does anyone have any knowledge of this,
Yes I’m aware I can take it to my garage. But it’s 8pm and a Google search has got the better of me:
Thank you ever so much for your input and knowledge.

Whenever a malfunction is detected, the start stop feature is turned off. Check the codes as soon as possible.
Oh!!!! So it’s not to do with that?? No wonder Google wasn’t very forthcoming with any link with those!
It’s going to the garage tomorrow, but least this has answered a question.
Thank you!

Exactly, it’s a symptom not the issue. Could be anything really.

Ive been told it’s a possible issue with the turbo.
The light is very intermittent. I can do a whole journey. No issues.
next dAy the lights on immediately and it feels a bit laggy…

they are having it for a day to really dive in and find out what.

but thank youfor being so helpful!

Yep it was the turbo… took it down Monday. While I was there I asked if they could see if something was leaking as I noticed my drivers footwell was damp..
Heater matrix was royally pooped.

so my car has been through the ringer this week.

but it’s done & its home. 😂
