Yeah...while I do often go many days without driving it (I worked from home even before superpandemicfuntimes), I'm fairly certain it had been started and moved the night before (I share a tandem parking space) and a battery this new should be in the mid/upper 12s without draw. I'm going to have to find time to put my meter inline to see if there's any current showing at rest...and study up on the 330->12V circuit. If that's in that 'motor electronics' module, I'm suspicious

Thanks for the info. I've always had service at a Ford dealer and expected them to test everything. I will get it replaced as soon as possible as I have had problems with the car not going into electric mode. When that happens, the mileage drops significantly But, replacing and oxygen sensor fixed that and I'm consistently getting 33 mpg.

BTW, the factory battery in my 1998 Ford Windstar lasted 7 years, also. I just thought they were putting better batteries in new cars these days.
We got 8 years out of our 1998 Windstar OEM battery. A personal best for me.
