With the cold weather, I've been trying to get remote start working with either the key fob or app. In either case, it pretty reliably causes the stop safely now message to appear. I tried it while I was in the car and it starts but then shuts off seconds later.

So far I have been able to shut it off and back on a few times to get it to function but sometimes the wrench icon or engine icon are left on.

Some forscan outputs are here...


Anybody else seeing this?

My wife just had me remote start the car for her. I did it using MyFord touch app. She said it was started when she went outside, but that one of the displays has a wrench on it. I had her turn off the car and restart it, but the wrench didn't go away. PHEV battery had a 90% charge, and parking brake was not on.

I am at work now, so I can't really see what is going on.
