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.

I decided to take it to TrustFord.
Turns out many parts of the engine loom had been cut in various places.
The technician said he had no idea how this could happen.
Beats me too.
