2017 Escape - Auto Stop/Start Hard Reset

Postby Pepscobra - March 23rd, 2021, 12:41 am

Hi All,
I love my new (to me anyways) 2017 Escape! :)
Its a fantastic upgrade from my previous 2004 Escape.

Just recently upgrade the original Varta EFB battery to a new AGM battery.
Auto Stop/Start function is working again... but now it works all the time; when in Park, in Reverse, when I've just started the car, pretty much in all the scenarios where the book says its not supposed to function.

Does anyone know what fuse controls the Auto Start/Stop function please?
I want to try a hard reset on the control module first before I try the dealership route.
Hopefully that will reset it and get it working as it should again.

Cheers.
Pepscobra

I just replaced the battery in my 2017, and I think I have the opposite issue, in that auto start/stop still won't engage (which is a good thing in my book).

There is a BMS reset that can be done, I plan on doing that tonight with FORSCAN. I think the BMS was the thing attached to the negative post of the battery with a wire connected to it.

But again, in the US any auto start/stop vehicle comes with an AGM battery, I don't know that an EFB has the same BMS.

Did your battery have this on the negative terminal?
