2018 Escape Titanium AGM OEM Battery Replacement, BSM Reset and Auto Start/Stop Feature

I replaced my original 2018 OEM battery from a Ford dealership. I was told to drive it around for 8 hours or so, and the BMS would reset itself. The auto start/stop off/on feature in the instrument cluster did not work when checked. My only option is to hit the off button on my center console panel. Anyway, I went back to the dealership today and had them reset the BMS with their scanner tool. Same issue. Ever since I owned my Escape new, I had this auto start/stop feature turned off all the time without using the console button. What gives?

Dear Sir,

Thank You so much for the easy fix of the stop start function in our 2017 Ford Escape SE. I followed your instructions and the fix worked perfectly. I had a new battery installed 12 months ago while on vacation in Florida. The stop start would only work intermittantly. Now it appears to work all the time Thank You.
