Are you using auto hold?
Isn’t technology wonderful?Oh my goodness. That was it. I didn't even know what that was. But from your question, I googled it and figured out what it was. I didn't even know it had that. Just tested it and sure enough that was what was doing it. I obviously have a lot more reading and learning to do on this new car. Thank you.
Or in city traffic, with the hybrid it freaks folks out beside you when the car stops and then takes off under electric power (if you're gentle enough with the throttle)Yep, the symbol is hard to determine what it does, though “auto hold” isn’t all that clear either on other cars. Love that feature though, especially around here with the endless trains.
Had a quick question on the Auto Start Stop functionality of the new Ford Escape 2020 1.5 Liter SEL AWD. I have had several Escapes (2014, 2-2017s and now a 2020). I have read about and experienced many of the issues discussed on the 2017 regarding the engine Start Stop functionality and so far have been able to resolve them. That being said the functionality, when working, all seems to be consistent. I come to a red light, stop and the engine cuts off. When I release the brake, the engine engages and I take off. On the new 2020, I have noticed when I stop and the engine shuts off, when I release the brake, the engine does not re-engage ( turn back on). It only re-engages (turns back on) when I press the gas. I have sat at a stop sign for two minutes with my foot off the brake and the engine never re-engages until I press the gas. When I read the user manual, it stated the engine would engage when I release the brake. So my question is whether Ford has changed the way it works and the user manual is wrong, or whether this might indeed be an issue that should not be happening. Has anyone else experienced this? Since I am new, let me apologize in advance for any posting rules or other posting courtesies I might have missed or neglected.
On my 2017 Escape the heated wheel warms a little, but not a lot. On my F250 it almost gets too hot sometimes. I'd of thought that they'd all be designed to give off the same optimal amount of heat but it does seem like there is a lot of variance between vehicles, makes, and models.In Ford Escape the heated wheel is so faint that I can barely feel it.. thoughts/opinions appreciated.
I would hazard a guess that your car had been sitting in the lot for some time and the battery was not charged to the maximum as it needs to be for the stop/start feature to work.Just purchased 2020 Ford Escape Titanium.. it was dealer demo so came with 4600 miles but got a good deal.
However, after driving it home, I realized that auto start/stop never engaged.. Contacted the sales guy and now the car is back at the dealer while I have the loaner. Anyone else had this issue? (The button to turn auto s/s off is not pressed, and also scrolling through the options on the dash it says "auto stop/stop system normal operation"... but there is no operation!)
We picked up our 2020 in February when it was still pretty cold here in Michigan. Our steering wheel gets quite warm, so much so that I usually would only need to have it on for only a few minutes after a cold start. Hoping yours works as well in the cold.Disappointing with the heated steering wheel as my hands get really cold an that feature was one of the "must haves" for a new car.. let's see how it works in the winter.
Sound like they should have fitted a variable temperature control (like what controls the heated seats.)Our steering wheel gets quite warm, so much so that I usually would only need to have it on for only a few minutes after a cold start.
Sure would like to know more about what “not synced” means. FYI. I am driving a 2018 Titanium that sat for several months. It’s battery has never been as good as a new one put on my 2016 about the same time.I have an update on the auto s/s.. The dealer called and said that because the car sat on the lot for a couple of months, they needed to jump it before test driving and selling it. When they jump started, the auto s/s module wasn't synced with the battery anymore. I will be going to the dealer today to pick up the car, hopefully it works with no issues.
I know but what he related is a bit difficult for me to understand. My guess is bad battery until I learn more.Might be different since this is a 2020 Escape thread.
Search for "Ford battery management system." Lots on the reset required when replacing 12v batteries, which would sync the system to the new battery's charge/discharge characteristics. It makes sense that a run-down battery might forget.Sure would like to know more about what “not synced” means. ...
