2023 Ford F-150
  • Date of Incident: Apr-09, 2024
  • Date complaint filed: Apr-11, 2024
  • Failed components: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, POWER TRAIN, and FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE: WARNINGS

On numerous occasions all of the vehicles electronics, including screens, would shut off. Sometimes this happens while driving at highway speeds causing the vehicle to lose all power. When approaching the car to unlock there is often no power to access the vehicle, which requires manually unlocking the vehicle with the key, opening the hood, then touching metal to the battery terminal to reset the electronics. The vehicle has lost power in the middle of intersections, on the highway, and in parking lots. There are times when the car signals a fault with several of the adas features. When this happens it’s usually probable that once the vehicle is shut off, i won’t be able to get it started again without touching metal to the battery terminal. I have started to document the failures through video to show to the technicians just in case the obd doesn’t match what i describe. The date i’m including is the most recent occurrence but does not reflect the many occurrences since purchasing the vehicle last spring.
