You re-set the BMS (BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM)?I have a 2016 Ford Escape 2.0 SE AWD and I absolutely love it. But recently I’ve been having an issue.
I recently changed the battery in my Escape and everything seemed fine.
If you are using a TEMPORARY SPARE, it can confuse the ABS which in turn controls the ATC (ACTIVE TORQUE COUPLING).But when I started my car and started driving, the car felt underpowered and I heard a slight grinding sound. Shortly after, I felt a pop from behind then the ABS and TCS lights lit up and my dash said “4WD Temporarily Unavailable” and “Hill Start Assist Unavailable”. It mainly just happens when I make tight turns, like leaving a parking space After a little bit, the dash says “4WD Restored”. The whole time the car continues to feel underpowered.
I’m using a spare one my rear passenger and don’t know if that’s confusing the computer..
How would I go about fixing this issue? I wanna avoid going to a dealership and getting charged for a OBD reading..
If after replacing with correct tire size it still happens, you need to look at the ATC of the REAR DRIVE UNIT.
You can usually have codes pulled at most parts box stores.
