SYNC “battery saver”?

Post by GhostRider » Tue Nov 28, 2017 6:44 am

Normally the radio is supposed to stay on after the engine is off for a period of time or until the door is opened. However, lately I get this message (see pic) and the SYNC system turns off after the engine is off. What’s the deal?

Your battery is probably getting a touch low on charge.

You could be right! I took it in today for "The Works" and they tested the battery and its at 638 CCA/850 CCA.

Its a Motorcraft battery (BXT-65-850) that was installed on 5-28-16 with 87825 miles on it and it looks like its failing with 113457 miles. Should it be this bad a year and a half later with only 25,632 miles on this battery??? Whats the warranty?? It says on the side "36 month free replacement warranty." Should I have them replace it?
