I received the SSN message on my way home from work. Waited a minute or two and restarted the car and drove home with no problem. I checked under the hood and found that the 12v battery showed about 12.8 volts. Coolant was at or slightly below minimum. I looked around to see if I could identify any leaks, but found none. I plan to check the batteries for fluid, and am hoping to identify the connectors that may be showing corrosion.
I started the car the next day and got SSN right away. I turned the car off and opened and closed the door and it went away.

I am curious, does Ford have any remaining responsibility related to the TSB-20-2004, or more current?
Any thoughts on being able to find replacement batteries, if that is the problem?

Thanks for your thoughts.

One of your best bets for a battery is a junker. A pack from Ford will not be worth the price.

But remember that SSN can be triggered by many things. I've had a few screwing around with charger stuff. Try to pull codes with ForScan if you can.

I finally found time to check into this. I drove the car for about a two mile round trip today for the first time since I got this error on June 9th. No issues on the drive. I'm not that familiar with checking this stuff, but this is what I see that seems to be relevant.

I got Successful DTC reading, no error codes found.

Module: Battery Energy Control Module

I am familiar that there could be an issue with the 12 volt battery, I checked it and am getting just below 13 volts. I am also somewhat aware that there was an issue with cabling that Ford replaced on occasion, also that the battery itself could have a coolant leak that would produce issues, and the connectors could be not making a good connection. I am however completely unfamiliar with what codes would represent these issues, or where I would find them in the Forscan software.
