    Yup tried that. Engine shut off. I just disabled it from the advanced settings menu and will try again. Next thing I’ll try is turning off adaptive cruise control.

    I’d try my intune controller but don’t want to do anything until dealer has a crack at it.

    honestly, if you’re stalling, the truck isn’t safe to drive. Right now it’s stalling while you’re stopped, who’s to say it won’t see a bad value while you’re driving and do the equivalent of of the Microsoft blue screen of death?

    park it.

    Imagine it's just a loose connection or bad module and is easily isolated/fixed.

    Personally I'd drive it back to dealer right now and drop it off / demand a rental, no excuse for this, they sold you a brand new $70k-ish truck, and it was sold to you broken. Can't imagine they'll fight you on this, especially given that your new purchase dealer review card hasn't shown in the mail yet. The "we'll look at Friday" thing is not okay IMO.

    Highly doubt it's an issue of it having been hooned on test drives...at best such activity could create issues at 119,000 miles, not 119.

    agree....if it has only been a few days...tell them you want a refund then (you get 3 days right)...that will perk them up.

    Something similar happens to mine once in a while after I push the auto start stop button but truck has never stalled. However, it does not allow me to change drive modes. The drive mode display will not even appear upon pushing the button. Once I stop my truck and restart it then it works as usual.

    Agreed. The dealer may have traded for the vehicle. Its not uncommon at all to have even a few hundred miles new on the lot. I can say, owning 3 Raptors, In stock form i don't think there is anything you can do on a "joy ride" that would hurt the truck or cause that warning. You can beat the living hell out of these trucks on a daily basis and not hurt anything. The stuff that goes wrong is all going to happen no matter how you drive it. Its not durability issues, its engineering issues. Mostly electronic. I had 3 transmissions replaced on my 19 before the first oil change. Every issue was electronic related. Nothing mechanical at all. The valve body is 100% electronic. Mechanically it can take a MASSIVE beating. But, there is a damn good chance something will go wrong with the electronics. ECU/TCU, etc. The electronic issues can cause mechanical issues too. Aside from the cam phasers the trucks are solid mechanically. The transmission control unit and valve body electronics are seriously flawed though and may take a mind of their own at any time. Just keep it stock while its under warranty and hopefully any issues can get sorted out right away. If you tune the truck, you are screwed when these things happen. They won't warranty it.

    I mostly agree with you but don't forget that the guys that unload the truck at the train yard absolutely beat on these things sometimes. I personally know someone who's done this after unloading the vehicle from the train. So the dealer may not know that a stupid kid took his new truck for a joy ride. All your other points are valid

    ^^^YEP^^^ Mine had 340 miles on it when I bought it off the showroom floor, not a big deal.

    I have some insight about what happens in the rail yard. My spouse is a transport owner operator that delivers new Fords and has delivered 100's of Raptors among them. I'm not saying a vehicle can't get dinged or damaged on the train or in the rail yard, but the manufacturers put all new vehicles in "transport mode" to minimize that risk. And you can't get a vehicle off the rail yard without going through security with a vehicle "pass" from one of the auto carriers that has been assigned to move it. You would have a tough time getting a solo car out, as nearly everything is leaving on a transport trailer. Lastly, a dealership won't accept a "new" vehicle with an abnormal # of miles on it. I honestly don't know what that # is, but my significant other has had dealerships refuse the vehicle because of it.
