I see "Battery System Health" with a red [trouble] circle.
YES and YES!
I have been getting the warning notifications since the app/site update. Never gotten them before. There is never a warning light on in the car (more than once, I've checked immediately
upon receiving the notification). I've also run vehicle health reports that come up "clean".
I usually get the notification right after parking, within 30 seconds turning the car off. But not every time after I park. However, yesterday, I was notified most
of the times I parked. Today, though, no notifications. In any case, I think the warnings are bogus and due to some software glitch related to the update.
And, I too have started seeing the "Battery System Health" red icon... and, again, this has been happening only since the update. Never before. I also think this red icon status is bogus. I have never had any battery issues and the car is behaving normally.
I am also having intermittent issues getting car status or issuing commands (remote unlock, etc.). Sometimes they work, but most of the time they fail. I have no idea what the problem is with this, or if the above issues are related, but it, too, has only started happening since the update.
I am in contact with a Ford tech who suggested that my 12-volt battery was low, and causing all these behaviors. But, I measured the 12-volt battery... 14.4v when on, 12.5v when off, and 13.3v when charging. Seems fine to me.
IMO, something was screwed up in the update and is producing the bogus notifications and bogus battery health indications. So, I'm not very worried about my car, but pretty annoyed with Ford and their lack of insight into their own systems.
