OR, it's simply a bad battery. A small number of new batteries fail very early. Insist that the dealer do a full battery load check. Or pull the battery out yourself and take it to an auto parts store which does free battery checks.
That is a drastic drop of amp. An app more than a low battery would be useful.Here is another data point for battery issues from a 2016 MKC owner.
Purchased in January, drove 7700 miles since purchase never a battery issue until July 18th. Similar issue as was reported in the other battery thread. Drove the car on the 17th, sat in the garage for 12 hours and then bam, completely dead car.
AAA comes out with test gear, battery reads 4.7V severely depleted. Jump start and run the car for 15 minutes. Then we shut the car off and the amp draw was 2.8amps. There were no lights or instruments on, nor any welcome lighting. Walked around the car in a closed garage to make sure. Then I moved the FOB 60 feet away and when I got back from the walk the meter started to trail off from 2.8amps down to 0.77amps. Coincidence that the large draw stopped after the FOB was moved? I'm not sure.
Moving the FOB back to 6 foot away did not cause the current draw to increase.
AAA tech had to leave so that was the end of my test. I put a charger on the battery and now I am good today. We'll see.
I do wish the car would be able to flag these large current draws from the battery and alert the owner. Would be nice if the lincoln app showed a discharge while the car was off.
The Lincoln App never said a word about the battery being low.Actually, the app will show "low battery".
