So you had an older smaller battery and replaced it with bigger ? good deal what happened to your battery?
I went to leave work and I got the 'Stop Safely Now' within 1 or 2 seconds of pressing the START button but before the green "Ready" light would normally illuminate. Pulled fuses in the event it was just the computer being screwy. After messing with it, I had it towed to the dealer. In the end, it took 50 days to get it fixed. They put in the 33Kw 2017 battery. The old one had to go to Ford and checked out. A new one had to be sent back and installed, and a technician had to come out and reprogram the car for the new battery. Physically the same fit but I guess some of the settings associated with the new battery are different.
Had an issue the following week after getting it back, but to make a long story short, they forgot to refill the coolant system. Another trip to the dealer; but fortunately it wasn't hot yet and the only problem was when charging because the on-board charger would get too hot and so the charge current would get throttled back.
I had a battery issue before where it was sent back to Ford. Perhaps their previous patch job on my old battery came unglued. Don't know...but I hope this one lasts :) I'm at about 45k miles if it makes any difference.
