The only thing I have found that fixes it is to be sure it’s turned off in the background of the iPhone. Something is wrong with this app.

Lots of reviews in the Apple store about this topic. Despite disabling the app from all services, it continues to drain my battery. I've gone from a full charge to about 25% in a matter of two hours. And FordPass accounts for almost 90% of all of that - shown as 'background activity'. I'm at the latest of both iOS and FordPass. I'll just have to delete until it's fixed. This is a screen shot from this morning.

I'm still having the exact same problem. Have everything turned off as well.

it won’t let me open the app at all today. Makes you agree to the Terms, etc. but won’t go past it.

Yes it’s working and killing the battery on my iPhone again.
Mine is only showing 1%. It's odd everyone is getting different usages. Are you scheduling starts or anything like that that might require it to check in more often?

Before I ultimately deleted the app, I had gone thru delete/reinstall several times. I noticed that initially it behaved nicely for a while. But as soon as I drove my Ranger, and stopped, that's when all the background activity continued. So I just decided it'll stay deleted until Ford offers a different version other than 3.9.0

This is exactly what happens to mine.

I deleted the app from my phone.

I've been having the exact problem as everyone else. My phone actually gets warm when its draining battery so fast, which prompted me to look at the battery report in settings. Ford pass within the 30%-40% usage right at the top each time.

I just turned off motion & fitness in the app preferences. We'll see if that makes a difference.

On my iPhone, Ford+Alexa was taking up all the battery.

I'm surprised, I've updated everything and FordPass uses almost no battery on mine.
