Mine is bone stock, but it gets driven almost every day. I know these new cars have a power draw from the security system and such as they sit. But I would agree that a dealer visit should be in order for our friend here.

Thanks for the reply! So the only think I can thing of is that the temperature in PHX has been constantly over 110 degrees. I have not made any mods as my car is completely a stock XLT. I did read however, that the sleep mode may start during extreme cold or heat. But this is every day!
Hi Eddy,

We have a test track in Phoenix so during development of the North American Ranger this sort of problem would have manifested itself. We also test in Death Valley which is likely higher ambient temps than even Phoenix. Also do octane work in Needles California...again sweltering conditions. We are a few degrees cooler in Green Valley as we are at 3000' elevation, but only a few degrees cooler...Hot, Hot, Hot.

Best,

Hey guys, this is one of the only AZ threads I can find. I'm in the west valley as well! Anyone running into the problem of Deep Sleep mode turning on after every trip you make with your Ranger? It's getting pretty frustrating because this means I can't use my auto start.
I've only had mine go into DS mode once. That was last Christmas when I was away for 17 days and it went into DS on the 14th day like it's supposed to. I would see what the dealer says because that would suck if it's doing it every day.

It has been hot for sure,but I have not experienced any issues with my XL,and it sits outside 24-7.

may want to have the battery checked just in case.Maybe a borderline battery will cause it.

Just talked to the dealer and they said it may be the starter (since the battery tested fine). So they want me to drop it off so they can run a diagnostic. Only problem is that they are so behind that my car hay have to be there for 6 days. 🙄

Mind sharing what that ran? It's $495 from the factory, was wondering if it's cheaper to have it done on my own.

Sure,it’s the same 495.I had pass points that I used and paid 299 when it was all said and done.

Tuff skins say they will do a spray in for 300 including tax..

Giving this one a casual bump. Like the idea of a Meet-N-Greet when covid numbers drop. Too many places shut down and weird rules abound. Makes meeting up hard to do.

Anyone interested for a little off-road drive next Sunday 1/17 ? I usually leave early mornings so by the time I hit the trail head it's sunrise. I like quiet trails to avoid the annoying side by sides.
