Ford Focus Owners Manual: General information

General points on starting

If the battery has been disconnected the vehicle may exhibit some unusual driving characteristics for approx. 8 kilometres (5 miles) after reconnecting the battery.

This is because the engine management system must realign itself with the engine.

Any unusual driving characteristics during this period may be disregarded.
