We recently got a new to us 2017 FFH and we love the car but we have experienced some odd behaviors lately.
Over the last 2 weeks we have had a wrench icon randomly appear on the left screen. It does not appear to affect the drivability of the car but it has caused some other strange things. Usually when we turn the car on by the dash button I will see the icon light up, when that happens I notice the ac is off, instrument cluster and 8 inch screen brightness reverts to factory brightness. If I turn the car off and then back on the wrench icon goes away.
I'm not sure how it gets replicated to cause the wrench to come on but I'm not sure if I should take the car to the dealer or not as its still under warranty but I have no way to recreate the issue. I have taken photos of when it has happened as proof.
I have seen and read other older threads about this but our fuel gauge & distance to empty appear to be way off. I read that the DTE goes based on your previous 500 miles worth of driving info and we are 1000 miles in but its still off. As an example, When I filled up a week ago, fuel gauge showed FULL and DTE showed about 320 miles to empty. We drove almost 480 miles and the DTE was 39 miles. When the empty light with 50 miles to E popped on, I drove an additional 50 miles and the DTE only went down to 39 miles to E.
when I filled up yesterday for our current tank, again we drove 480 miles with an DTE of 25 and with the full tank DTE is now 315 miles.
I figured it would of been closer to 500?
Am I missing something here? I am used to the DTE being off by 5 or 10% but not 35-40% considering the same driving conditions, same weather in Sunny Houston Texas....
If anyone has any additional info I would appreciate it.
