Bought my 2015 mkc reserve as a used, low mileage vehicle just out of warranty. No issues with the car for 6 months, but battery died while at a tire service retailer and they jump started it for me, advising that it only needed a charge. The battery tested aok. Being a Sunday, I went to a Ford quicklane service center and had the battery changed figuring they are familiar with Fomoco cars. When they told me it was finished, I left the office area and saw 3 techs under the hood and one behind the steering wheel, apparently in conference about resetting all lost memory functions. After leaving the are, about a week later, I began getting "collision alert not available" warnings. They were intermittent, coming and going for periods of ten minutes to weeks. When the alert displayed, cruise, both adaptive and standard would not work. Dealer service said sensor bracket was bent, straightened and fixed. Not so, ten minutes from dealer, same issue. Took car back a week later, they said can't duplicate condition. Problem continued so took back again. Dealer called said about $3,000 to replace and recalibrate sensor and camera by rear view mirror. Months later, when warning goes off now, adaptive cruise will not engage and cannot engage standard cruise. Unable to find solution to this issue that is cost reasonable, and wonder why standard cruise setting is unable to be engaged. I intend to swap out the location 42F 10a fuse for the adaptive cruise system next, but wonder if anyone else is having issues or just my car? The warning sign is constantly lit nowadays. Can turn it off with steering wheel button, but neither cruise works, nor does the car "self fix" itself like it used to intermittantly.
