Have it scanned for codes. Auto parts stores usually offer this for no fee write down the codes. The auto shut down feature can be activated if there's an electrical issue. Battery, alternator, harness connections, etc 2012 Focus, so many..... TSBs Technical service bulletins.

Ford is having trouble with throttle bodies again. Call your local Ford dealer with the cars vin and have them run an "OASIS" on your car.
