gwbasley, did you fix your issue? I have had a terrible time lately with my 2015 connect (70600miles )all my bells and whistles going off ! hill assist/ service engine/ service transmission/ and also a transmission failure notice.
It also went into limp mode, now I'd like to think I'm more than a driveway mechanic as I have 7 vehicles to maintain, I also just helped my Friend install a lift in his shop!
I Found the problem!! turns out the rear wheel sensor was not picking up the speed . it started when we had a snow storm, there is a magnetic ring in the rear wheel hub assembly.
I thought I could feel a bearing problem lately. I also have a friend who is a seasoned Ford service tech, He had told me there is a known issue with the rear speed sensor on the Ford focus/ Transit connect and it effects the transmission
( Nice to have friends in low places) I want to thank GBL / shady lady/ Don Ridley.
Also I found while shopping for parts that rock auto had the motorcraft hub/ bearing assembly for $299.00 each, I almost lost it. On a whim I checked the dealer, They have motorcraft hubs for
$130.00 ea. one dealer in connetuicut had them ford $105 ea.and the abs sensors for $19.00 ea. Now I'm not one to through parts at something until it's fixed and I will not pay a dealer for diagnostics. As soon as I change the right rear wheel hub and sensor
I plugged it in turned the key and all my lights were gone, no more errors. Test ride was perfect, now to reset the adaptive tables for the transmission.
