Ford C-Max Energi Recalled For Engine Run-On Issue

Wed Jun 29, 2016 7:04 pm

Ford has issued a recall that affects the C-Max Energi.

The recall actually includes the 2015 Focus, C-Max and Escape vehicles, but the C-Max Energi is the only plug-in affected.

According to reports there’s an issue with a body control module that could allow the engine to continue running even after being properly shut off.

The C-Max Energi has a push-button start, but even Fords with a standard keyed ignition are affected by this problem.

Here’s a rundown of the affect vehicles:

Focus models built in the Wayne, Mich., assembly plant from June 17, 2014 to June 12, 2015, C-Max hatchbacks built in the same plant between April 22, 2014 and June 12, 2015, and Escapes built in Louisville from April 1, 2014 to June 12, 2015 make up the roughly 433,000 vehicles affected.

Ford is contacting owners of affected models and will be replacing the modules free of charge.

Not surprised. I think the problem is with the battery. It was bigger you could get rid of the entire engine which would solve many problems.

Ford is recalling 2015 C-Max hybrids to address a software glitch, as part of a larger recall of more than 432,000 2015 models.

The software-related malfunction in the body-control module could cause the engines in affected vehicles to continue running even after the driver has turned off the ignition.

It's possible for cars to continue running with the ignition switched to "off" and key removed or, after pressing the engine start/stop button, if so equipped.

According to green car reports so far the Ford hybrid sales have not been hurt at all by reduced MPG or recall

According to US News the Ford C-Max Energi only scores 2 out of 5 on a reliability test The test is based on JD Power and Associates vehicle dependability study. 2 out of 5 isn't that good
