I was driving on the freeway, no problems when I saw my "Engine Service" light was on. It didn't blink just came on and stayed on when I was on the freeway going 65mph. Stopped twice and it stayed on at ignition. Called my salesperson but she hasn't called me back. I will take it into the dealership in the morning to hopefully get some answers. Has anyone had this problem with their MMH or FEH?
The Service Manager called me Monday pm and said the Tech finally reset the system and the light went away. They never really found the problem if there really is one. He said it could come back on or not but to bring it back if it does. He did apologize for the lame answer though. The only thing I can say is the MMH was running fine when the light was on, no difference with the engine running or in EV. So we'll see what happens.
Thanks for asking MyPart.
well I had identical experience this am
driving on freeway at 65 and 09 escape hybrid check engine light came on steady
I did have the car washed a day ago and there is no longer a gas cap
the manual says it is an emissions malfunction that can occur with water in the gas to refill the gas tank with new gas and wait 3 cycles and then if no better go to dealer
One worries that without the gas cap that water is going to get in these tanks
we shall see and I will let you know if this goes away and whether I have to go to the dealer
otherwise by the way a great car--31.5 mpg and rides very nicely
OK one week later engine light off
took one tank of gas and some "water out of the fuel" stuff
dealership found nothing wrong
was water in the fuel I assume
driving great--a terrific vehicle now almost 32 mpg mixed hiway local driving
