Another dead battery checking in. Late Saturday night my car would not start at all. It didn't even try to turn over, I would only hear some eletrical relay-type sounds. The outside lights were dim, but all the interior lights still turned on including the MFT screen, which said it was in "battery saver" mode.

Luckily a friend had jumper cables and we were able to get the car started. Sunday morning the car wouldn't start again. Called Ford roadside assistance and they sent a tow truck out. The driver was able to jump it again so I could get it to the dealer. They just called and told me it was a bad battery. The service writer said he hadn't seen any others in with dead batteries so hopefully it was just a fluke.
