INSTRUMENT CLUSTER / MESSAGE CENTER -
AUTOLOCK / AUTOUNLOCK / AUTOLAMP DISPLAY
INCORRECT STATUS / MISSING

FORD:
2008 Escape Hybrid, Escape

MERCURY:
2008 Mariner Hybrid, Mariner

This article supersedes TSB 08-15-5 to update the Issue Statement and Service Procedure.

ISSUE
Some 2008 Escape, Mariner and Escape/Mariner Hybrid vehicles built, on or before 6/17/2008 and equipped with a message center instrument cluster may exhibit Autolock / Autounlock / Autolamp exit delay time features that falsely display "Off" regardless of actual feature On/Off status. Any one of these features changed individually may cause the remaining untouched features to default to actual "Off' status. In some vehicles the Autolock / Autounlock feature may not display at all in the message center.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
1. If the Autolock or Autounlock feature is not displayed in the message center when toggling through the setup, it will need to be enabled using the IDS. If the Autolock or Autounlock features are displayed in the message center skip to Step 2.
a. Connect the Ford Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) service tool to the data link connector (DLC).
b. ID the vehicle.
c. Select the toolbox.
d. Select Module Programming.
e. Select Programmable Parameters.
f. Select Power Door Locks.
g. Select Enable for each Autolock / Autounlock selection.

2. Reprogram the instrument cluster to the latest calibration using IDS release B56.8 and higher or IDS release B57.1 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2008.7 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at the website.

REAR BRAKE NOISE - ROTATIONAL CHIRP -
(EXCLUDES HYBRID)

FORD:
2008 Escape

MERCURY:
2008 Mariner

This article supersedes TSB 08-11-2 to update the Service procedure.

ISSUE
Some 2008 Escape and Mariner (Excludes Hybrid) vehicles may exhibit a noise from the rear brakes while coming to a stop. This condition does not affect brake performance. The noise is typically described as a cyclic, scraping, or rotational chirp noise.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
To better determine if this procedure is applicable, be advised of the following characteristics:
^ The noise this procedure addresses is unlike a typical brake squeak.
^ It is often described as a groan noise or scraping noise which is cyclic and follows wheel speed.
^ Vehicles will usually exhibit the noise at speeds under 20 MPH (32 Km/h).
^ This noise will only be present when the brakes are very warm or hot such as experienced in stop and go traffic.

Vehicles built prior to 6/15/2007 follow both procedures A and B.

Vehicles built after 6/15/2007 perform only procedure B.

NOTE
PERFORMING PROCEDURE B IS THE MOST CRITICAL PART OF THIS REPAIR. ADDING LUBRICANT TO THE WHEEL CYLINDER PISTONS WILL REDUCE FRICTION BETWEEN THE WHEEL CYLINDER PISTON AND ALUMINUM WHEEL CYLINDER WALL ELIMINATING NOISE SOURCE.

PROCEDURE A
1. Replace the rear brake shoes. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 206-02.

2. Apply Motorcraft® Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound to the contact points between the shoe and the rear backing plate. Ensure grease will not contact brake lining surface.

PROCEDURE B
1. Remove the rear brake shoe return springs brake shoes, and wheel cylinder dust boots. Using your hands, push one piston into the wheel cylinder until the opposite side piston is exposed. Be sure the wheel cylinder piston is extending out beyond the end of the wheel cylinder sufficient to allow complete coverage of the piston surface and piston seal. It is possible and recommended to have the piston cup seal slightly exposed when performing this operation (Figure 1).


2. Apply Motorcraft(R) Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound around the wheel cylinder pistons and then repeat procedure for opposite side wheel cylinder pistons. Be sure to pack the grease into the wheel cylinder bore to ensure grease gets back to the piston seal. (Figure 2)


3. Once both wheel cylinder pistons have been lubricated, shuttle the pistons side to side three (3) or more times to distribute the lubricant and ensure smooth movement. (Figure 3)
