is it wise to wake a Raptor from deep sleep? ;-)
My 2017 802A SCREW was in deep sleep mode when I went to remote start her this afternoon. Ford Pass said "Deep Sleep Mode, remote functions not available, start truck manually". Ah yes start truck manually...
What that means is take the mechanical key out of the key fob once you get it open, use that key to unlock Drivers Door, then get in shut the door and press Start button. That didn't work, no power everything dead. For grins I tried taking out the bottom of the front cupholder rubber piece, put the key fob in the indentation and tried again. Nothing, EVERYTHING DEAD NO POWER.
Disconnected negative battery terminal for 10 minutes, reseated it and.reseated positive terminal. No power. Called Geico for a jump.
Battery DEAD. NO REASON ONLY 3 YEARS OLD AGM FORD BATTERY. Geico Road Service said 2 to 3 years is normal battery life for new cars in Las Vegas. Who knew?
What if I had been Off Road in the boonies? Geico Dude recommends carrying a Heavy Duty Jump Box like he used. His was weak. Had to wait a couple minutes connected before it would turnover long enough to start.
After start Synch Screen Black but I dont want to shut off to reset that till I get home.
it sounds like your Raptor was past deep sleep mode and already in a coma.
How long since the last start up? I understood “deep sleep” was meant to preserve the battery. Kind of ironic.
Oh it was in Coma Mode alright! Thought maybe it caught Corona Virus. Truck was shut down only since Monday so only 3 nights. Been taking a lot of short trips lately but the last drive to Costco was 10 mins on freeway both ways.... I read that Deep Sleep Mode is activated if battery drops below 10.8 volts. Several owners say they had it activate after only 3 days or in cold temps like 0 degrees. Others have said it activates randomly or will not clear ever. Maybe Phantom Power Drain / Voltage Drop?
So I checked Ford Pass App after restart. The Lock / Unlock / Start functions were back on. It said I was in Antarctica. Shoots that would be a trip! See Ford Pass Screen shots below.
Next restart Synch Screen came back and everything is normal and I'm back in Las Vegas from Antartica. A new battery and a portable jump starter are on the shopping list now.
BEAM ME UP SCOTTY!
Screenshots did not disappoint, lol!
after 2 weeks
1 month later,i just start manually the truck like nothing happen!
BTW, you guys that deactivated your start/stop using Forescan did it by turning off the battery monitor feature. Just so you know.
Please explain what you mean. I had my start/stop turned off by my MPT tune, so I am wondering what if any are the ramifications.
The Forescan mod to eliminate start/stop turns off the battery monitoring feature.
