1 month update!
Have not had even one problem since the battery was replaced!
Auto start-stop has been coming on regularly and restarting without a problem- even in the frigid temps we are having up north.
Very happy, and would highly suggest anyone having this problem to push for a battery voltage check, as it does appear that this was the problem, and without a fully charged good battery the feature will not work properly.
Happy New Year all!
Hi thanks for sharing.
I am having this problem with my 2017 Ford Escape and too and will tell the dealer to check the battery charge!
