Description
On your vehicle, it may be possible the body control module bcm and powertrain control module pcm calibrations are unable to detect a sudden battery degradation while driving.

This recall showed up on my CarFax vehicle report today for our 2021 Bronco Sport Big Bend, as well our Ford Pass app. Have not received a letter from Ford yet.

No issue here. The Battery Management System sucks so bad already that auto-stop is basically turned off on its own!

I got the recall from my dealer and CarFax. However,the fix, BCM reprogram, is not out yet.
I know I can disable the stop/start setting with the button on my dash. However, I seem to forget that. I am wondering if I could turn it off with Forscan?

Ok. The Forscan turn off the auto stop/start but doesn't disable the switch light. It doesn't activate the auto stop/start feature. It just act like it does. I thought it hadn't changed anything until I drove down the road and stopped for a bit. It never entered the start/stop mode.

I'm disabling auto start/stop every single time I drive until the recall's complete. What a pain.

This is what I do not understand about the description in the recall:

"If the battery suddenly degrades during a drive it can lead to a vehicle that is unable to restart after an auto stopstart event or experience a stall while coming to a stop at low speed."

I see many posts that blame the auto start/stop for the issue. I do not think that is entirely correct. I have never seen an issue like this on any other Ford's that I have owned that has had auto start/stop. Under normal conditions the auto start/stop will not engage if the battery charge is too low. If the car hasn't been driven for a few days or other factors auto start/stop will not activate and the message will say that the engine is on due to charging. So I do not understand how the auto start/stop will even engage if the battery charge is so low that the car will not be able to restart. Something else must be going on that caused the battery to discharge to point where the car could not restart and at the same time allowed the auto start/stop to engage. If auto start/stop is working normally it should be an early warning sign that something is wrong with the battery because if it is not charged enough the auto start/stop should not activate. I just hope that what ever the issue is it will be fixed by the recall.
