    Last week our Explorer (12 months old/20K miles) had the battery suddenly die on us. Tried jumping it from another vehicle with no luck. Roadside sent a tow company out to take to dealership but they were able to jump with a box and recommended we just drive it and it should be fine drive around 45 min and got home and and wouldn’t restart. Had it jumped again next morning and took to dealer where they diagnosed a bad battery cell and replaced the battery. After this Though the rear hatch wouldn’t work and we We’re asked to bring back in Monday(today). Didn’t work all weekend but dealer tries it this morning and it works just fine and could duplicate. Picked up and pissed cause it won’t replicate and stop for dinner and wife says it won’t detect key. Replaced FOB battery still get message. Started and shut off several times with FOB and finally was able to shift out of park and brought home and now this issue won’t replicate.

    Supposed to drive from TX to FL and I’m worried that we get stuck somewhere and vacation get ruined. Anyone got any ideas of what problem could be?

    I don't know if this would do anything for your issues, but did you read page 293 of your Manual regarding restoring settings?

    Sorry but the manual is in the Explorer at the dealership. What does pg 293 say?
