Ford C Max 1.5 TDCI 2015 "Engine Service Now"
Hi All

I bought a ford C Max 1.5 tdci titanium 2015. Stop/start. No key.
Done 300 miles/2 weeks in it with no problems, I did notice the battery wasn't holding charge for very long.
I replaced the battery with the same type.
Making sure I disconnected the positive terminal first, before disconnecting any other wires or sensors.
It took over an hour, taking my time and being careful.

Switching on the ignition I now get a engine warning message.
"Engine Service Now"
Followed by
"tank empty _ _ _ miles"

It won't start.

Questions I have.

Is this a normal occurrence when changing battery.

Could codes have been cleared by previous owner. Only to come back after battery disconnect.

I've ordered a OBD 2 reader(Genuine elm327 interface)

Will I be able to read the errors in detail.

After errors check, is it possible to reset/clear all error codes.

Will the main dealer know I've used a OBD 2 reader.

I'm new to OBD scene, steep learning curve. But I'm enjoying the experience. When my head doesn't hurt.
