2015 focus completely dae, except for the radio


The office Ford Focus. Parked it in the parking garage, next day dead as a doornail. No lights, no ignition noise, nothing. Radio works though. We are having it towed in so it isn't my problem to fix. Bets on what's going on? I think something that is supposed to be turning off isn't.

I'll guess battery, or the connections.

Put in a new battery and watch the dome lights come on.

I thought it might be a security code issue too.

That's more than likely the case.

I'm not up to date with all the new features but with the security systems it's generally all or nothing, or at least the dome light would come on with the radio but it would be a no start.

No crank, no click, no headlights. Radio came on but that's it. Tow truck driver tried to jump it. Nothing. Couldn't even get it in neutral. Had to open the hook and unhook something to shift it to neutral. It's at the dealer now.

Had a dead battery. Also, they did a recall upgrade to the BCM to ensure the engine wouldn't run even with the ignition switch turned to off.
