I live in a cold climate and was looking forward to having my truck warm and ready to go each morning without having to think about it. You can do this by setting up departure times and setting the climate control to warm. This function is great when it works, the problem is that it rarely works. I had the truck in to the dealer for its free 5000 mile service and asked them to check on this about a month ago and it of corse when they checked it at the dealership it worked fine. The said the truck did not show any codes and was up to date. The truck did pre condtion the next couple of day after I got it back from the dealer but now is back to maybe working 1 out 10 times. I have cleared the departure time and re added them to no avail, not sure what to do next, I was hoping a software update would fix this but it continues and I have got two updates since the dealer visit although they repeats of ones the truck already had, it is on 3.5.4 for what is worth. I had it "work" the other moring but a the wrong time, I have it set to 7 am and Ford pass notified me that it was ready at 5 AM, I checked my charger app and sure enough it did pull some power shortly beofore 5 am to warm the cab and battery, too bad it ws ston cold at 7 am and wasted the power to warm it at the wrong time. I checked the settings and it was set 7AM still. I am hoping @Ford Motor Company can help me out with this. How many other members are having this issue? I know I can remote "start" the truck to warm it and the battery but it would be nice to have the departure time work as it should.
