Highball116 Time to sell those cars, guys! Put a few thousand miles on to make it convincing, then sell it because you "realized you don't need the car."

But, I have no idea why that happened and I've no other electrical issues of any kind.
I recommend reaching out to your dealer to have this looked at.

Hey sounderella,

Wow, it's kind of like you're driving a new car all the time! I'd suggest swinging by your dealership so they can inspect. Ford certified techs are in the best position to diagnose and repair your vehicle.
