Have any of you seen this before?
is the only mention I see on here.
I've had this issue, since I bought the car. It's been looked at several times, by the dealer I purchased the car from. I consulted (by phone) just about every Ford dealer service department in the Houston region, no help. I did the procedure, to disable vehicle transport mode, and the car responded with proper prompt, letting me know the procedure was a success, but it would still go into vehicle transport mode, within a few minutes of engine off, with the key in accessory position. I tested my battery several times, but it always tested good. I discovered, that if I bumped the battery, while it was being load tested, it would sometimes fail. I took the car to a Master Service Advisor, that seemed knowledgeable, at another dealership, that I'd talked to previously, and explained everything. Eventually they reproduced the problem, and replaced the battery. I haven't had any problems since.
