So less than one week old. 3 different TPMS light events. 2 were justifiably set but one I don't know why. Now I was backing it up the driveway and the wrench light came on.
Less than 150 miles on the car .
Argh....

That's odd for a new car to have a powertrain fault so soon. Best to contact your dealer as soon as possible in case it's not just a busted light and there's actually something wrong with your powertrain.

Even the new Escape had its fair share of issues so much that I have seen people hold out on buying one since they launched years ago.
It might be a good idea for me to hold out as well.

Did you own a Ford product before?

Sorry to hear that you're having these kinds of issues on a vehicle thats not even a week old. TPMS systems can be finicky in any car, and I'm sure those we're just the result of changes in the weather. Let us know what the dealership finds with the powertrain fault.

In most cases it's just a problem with the light and nothing really mechanical. Seems to be a pretty common problem with cars these days, though it doesn't come as a surprise with how advance the systems are.

I can understand the TPMS lights coming on for a variety of reasons, but its best not to assume the same for transmission codes. No point in leaving it to chance on such a new car that's still covered by a factory warranty. Wish all these new cars hadn't swapped over to new scanner tools and that these problems could be identified at home.

It's a bug with the software load and I got a letter in the mail yesterday. It will show definitely if you use syncconnect and remote start and probably a few other things. It will clear when you turn it off and manually start it according to the bulletin. They have to reprogram it. It's probably not a real fault.
