Outstanding Field Service Action - Etis
Posted 15 February 2012 - 09:29 PM
I have just put my reg into ETIS for the first time with the Focus.
In the Outstanding Field Service Actions bit, it says '1U391 - DISCHARGED BATTERY AFTER PARKING'... I've never had any issues with the battery, anyone know what this could be?
It's due a service at the beginning of March (yes, a year old already ) and some other minor things need doing so I assume it would be sorted then?
Anyone else had an issue like this?

It's going in on the 14th so I'll ask then and get a definitive answer.

Couldn't hurt to give it a good run.
Mines be fine, the only thing that has happened is when I first got the car I was sitting in it with engine off but keys in the ignition setting up the radio etc. after about 15mins a warning popped up saying low battery check manual! I spoke to my friend and he said it could be because it's new and the car needing a long run to give the battery a good charge?

A good straight run up an A road or motorway does wonders for the car.
The engine gets a good work up too, ensuring that oil gets around evenly.
Short runs just don't do that.
How many people drive to and from work without the temp guage ever getting off it's stops?
My work car can easily do 200-300 miles a day just mooching around, and not always motorway either, but never has problems with electrics even though it is running serious amounts of extra electrical equiptment.
My own car gets at least a 30 mile run to nowhere in particular at least once a week.

I've just dropped mine off, I didn't need to mention anything they were already aware, ford service said one recall outstanding thats the battery discharge which is rectified with an update?
Normally that's something like Auto Lights or Wipers (or anything controlled by sensors like those mounted on the windscreen) where the sensors should power down when you lock the car but in some cases don't so cause current drain on the battery. Usually just a software upgrade to fix 'bugs' like that.
