I get this warning coming on the instrument cluster with a red wrench below about every three drives. Took it to the dealer, they had it for three days talking with Ford. They updated software and performed a TSB. The warning is back again, right after I drove it home. I can see no effect on the powertrain so maybe a software issue? I told them I am not bringing it back until they know how to fix it. Anyone else seeing this one? It also comes up on the app.

Do you have any powerline Ethernet devices in your house?

You may be right! It only comes on pulling out of my garage. My solar system uses that I think. Will test.

And Ford is aware and working on it. The thread I created documented my encounter with it.

We just experienced this with our MME too.
We have a power line ethernet device on our solar panel inverter.

I had this message too the first week. brought it to the dealer... did some updates and it disappeared for a while...

it came back last week.

Now it's been a week that the dealer is working on it. Seems like they did an update that Ford asked them to do and it bricked the car (on the ABS breaking system). (This was last thursday). Then Ford told them they would call them back in 4 open days. I am still waiting to know what's happening with my car.

3 months of ownership and already 8 days to the dealer.

Got some news from the dealer today. They did all the updates provided by Ford and... nothing. Back to square one. They don't have a clue what to do. So we're still waiting for Ford to find a solution...
