Hi folks,

If this becomes a persistent concern, I'd definitely mention it to your dealer the next time you have an oil change or other scheduled maintenance visit. Getting a Ford certified tech's eyes and hands on your vehicle is the best way to get accurate diagnosis and repair.

Please reach out to me if you have any other questions or concerns.

Thanks!
Crystal

I'm curious why the engine block heater would be suspected in the case of the car not starting for 5 seconds after turning the key? That plugs into an AC power source separate from the car. I haven't had this problem by the way but I have a push button to start the car.
