Tire Car Wheel Vehicle Automotive lighting


A Lightning owner had his truck break down on him after only a couple of weeks owning it and 80 miles driving it.


I took delivery of my new $95k Electric Platinum Lightning F150 on June 25th, Drove it for 80 miles and parked it. Charged it on my charger for three hours and then drove another 8 miles. Parked it and then went back to drive it two hours later and it would not start. Had a message that said "exit vehicle safely". Was able to get the center screen consule to light up and put it into "EMERGENCY TOW" mode. Called a tow truck and had it delivered to my local FORD dealership and it was dropped off in front of the service departments front door. I called them Monday morning; June 27th and they said that the truck would not turn on at all.

Oh, that would be a big bummer to be broke down...

This issue sounds A LOT like what the Mache E was having with their recent recall.... I wonder if the Contactors failed in the battery....

Sounds like low 12V to me, said they could not get the infotainment on, which is a 12V issue. Could find out quick with a jump.
If the 12V failed, he would not have been able to get to the tow mode on the Sync display. It does sound a lot like the failed contactor issue in the Mach E, if one contactor welds shut, the vehicle will not start up again after it is shut down.
