Ford Escape: Multifunction Electronic Modules / General Procedures - Transport Mode Deactivation


NOTE: After vehicle build, some vehicle modules are set in Transport mode including the IPC and the BCM . Transport mode reduces battery drain during longer periods where the vehicle is not used. While in transport mode, the IPC displays TRANSPORT MODE CONTACT DEALER in the message center. Various systems may be altered or are disabled when in the transport mode. The vehicle automatically reverts to normal operation mode after being driven 201 km (125 mi). The vehicle can be manually taken out of Transport mode using this procedure.

If the IPC displays FACTORY MODE CONTACT DEALER in the message center the vehicle is set in factory mode. The system does not automatically revert to another mode and must be manually set to either the transport or normal operation mode. Refer to the Factory Mode Deactivation procedure in this section.
