Switching off randomly/non start

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Has anyone encountered this problem?

Brought my 2018 Mondeo St Line edition in feb this year & have an issue with the electrical system just switches off while driving then turns back on, dash goes out completely including sync system, electric windows dont work either, done this 3 times but usually only lasts a minute or so. When it turns back on displays the powertrain fault spanner, ESC service required & activity city stop not functioning warnings however once turned off & started again these have gone. It has also failed to start first thing but then will start after a short wait. The stop start does not work at the moment but aware this is a common Ford issue with battery low?? Car has been back to dealership who stated could not find any faults & car drove without any issues.

What type of journeys does your car typically do e.g. do you commute via motorway to work etc.  Modern diesels take a fair amount of grunt to start and what with all the modern fluff running as well, lot's of short journeys can easily deplete the battery to the point where the car's ECU chucks a paddy.
