Ford Pass Deep Sleep Mode

Recommended Posts

After setting for few days we usually get the Ford Pass message about car going into deep sleep mode and remote will not start vehicle and locks will not work remotely.  Tried it this time and remote does every thing normal including remote start???

It usually activates when thd battery gets low, to save as much as it car to allow it to start. Its usually a sign that its either experiencing a current draw when the vehicle is off, or the battety is getting weak and needs replacing. 

 

Have you installed a dash cam or anything that may be drawing current when the car is off? Try unplugging it and see if the car still sets the sleep mode.

 

If not, you probably need a new battery.

Actually my question was why did the remote still start the car after notification of shutdown.  Found out today that it did indeed stop remote starting using Ford Pass but not using the remote (key).

When the battery went bad in November the car did nothing as to warning of shutting down. Just died overnight and could not even unlock doors electrically.

If I were to guess, the remote start is governed by the SJB module and the Ford Pass goes through the modem first. Most likely the modem is not active during the shutdown, but the SJB is. Interesting find.
